Donating Personal Care Items for Homeless

personal care and cotton washclothsThank you AnneMarie in New York, lots of goodies here folks. 25 Cotton Washcloths, and soap, razors, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes to match up with them for some wonderful personal care packages. Some of the washcloths are squares, some round, some octagons. Very cool!

Anne Marie is our newest pair of helping hands. YIPPEE, always great to have more help. Thank you Anne Marie for your thoughtful donation, and welcome to the group. Hope to see you often here at The Bridge.

**September is Scarf Month, and we're having another contest.
From now until October 8, I'll toss names into a hat for everyone who donates a scarf for a teen or adult...male or female. Feeling like we need to bump those numbers a bit and will draw the winning name from the hat and send out another box of yarn. Contests are fun. We've had several fun, productive, and successful contests. Every scarf donated for a teen or adult (at least 5 inches wide and 5 feet or longer please), will qualify. **

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?
