Donated Crocheted Camo Hats for Men

crocheted hatsThank you Gail B from Virginia for these fabulous crocheted camo hats for our homeless men. They are nicely sized and warm I'm always excited to get hats large enough for the men. Some of you who've been involved with donating for Bridge and Beyond may remember our start up days here. Initially we only accepted and provided for Men, the group most often overlooked in charities. We started there because the need was great, the men were most often the ones truly living in the elements, and the group most often not provided for. We were able to provide for others as time continued through the generous support of knitters and crocheters with such big giving hearts.

We're now provide for men, women, and children living in shelters, temporary housing situations, and those in desperate cirucmstances.

Currently we're in the process of obtaining additional information/wants and needs of several groups to see whom we can best lend a helping hand to. Please keep your needles and hooks flying.

Many thanks Gail for your wonderful donation, keep up the good work.

  3. I love the camo colors. I haven't done any men's hats in a long time. Will have to get my hook working on that. So many projects. So little time.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
