Soft, Stylish Scarves Donated

5 crocheted scarves5 Soft, Stylish Scarves crocheted and donated by Jenn S in Ohio. Awesome. Notice the blue on the far left (remember all pictures can be clicked to enlarge), it's made from granny squares! Very nice, very creative Jenn. Thanks so much for your ongoing support and your thoughtful donation. Very much appreciated.

Folks, I'm pleased to say donations have come in steady enough I feel like we can, once again expand our mission to be able to help more people. The YWCA has a family shelter, run similar to The Homeless Families Foundation. Families are given shelter and essentials for a period of time and with help move from temporary housing (the shelter) to permanent housing. Our friend Rae will be making deliveries to them. This family shelter provides temporary housing for up to 100 families. It was only a short while ago I expanded our mission to include The Homeless Families Foundation with a large donation from our summer stock pile, and am hopeful we'll be able to continue to grow to provide for this 2nd family shelter as well.

Help us grow, tell your friends, your family and your co-workers of the need. See someone knitting or crocheting, ask them if they could help. If you have a blog, please include our badge, and or blog post with a link here. Facebook and tweeting are also very helpful. Thanks for all you do, let's keep up the good work helping these families get back on their feet and avoid being homeless.

Thank you!

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?
