Scarves for Ohio's Homeless from New York

Another pair of helping hands from the state of New York. Thank you Adrienne L, our newest pair of helping hands. We're happy to have you join us and hope to see you soon and often here on Bridge and Beyond. The 2 blue scarves are crocheted...everyone loves the color BLUE.

As I add Adrienne's name to our list of helping hands, I noted there's another Adrienne who donated. I've verified it's not the same person as this is her first donation. This points to one of the reason's I'm trying to get everyone's last initial and the state their from listed with their name. We've grown in our numbers of helping hands....which is WONDERFUL. It does though create a bit of difficulty for me trying to keep track of who's who. Soooooooo, would you all please look at the 3 lists...
1. Those with blogs
2. Those on Facebook, RAV, Ville, Hive
3. Those without blogs
Is the first initial of your last name listed? Is your state listed? Please leave a comment and let me know whom you are and where you're from. It helps when trying to identify donations. When I can't identify donations, I'm not able to let you know via email that your donations arrived. On the fun side....I want to make sure we have the state listed on the map below. Please scroll down and check out the map.
**Maybe you see 2 names and you don't know which is you, search using your name and you'll be taken to the blog post that highlights your work/donation....you can then see which one is 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?
