Scrub a Dub Dub

Think how good you feel when you take a bath or shower. Think how bad you feel when you don't. Something as basic as washing is so easy to take for granite when you have a roof over your head. People who are homeless don't have that luxury. That's right something we take granite is a true luxury to them. When we receive personal care items like this soap and cream from our good friend, and supporter RoseMarie it's luxury. These items are distributed to our family shelters (The YWCA, The Homeless Families Foundation, and Faith Mission), they are distributed to the Mens and Women Shelters provided by Faith Mission, and they are provided to the men and women living outdoors.

Many thanks RoseMarie for your thoughtful donation.

**Reminder folks, please avoid lacy stitches in your knitted/crocheted items. If you can poke your finger through...it's probably too open and therefore not as warm as it could be. We strive for warmth and durability**

WOOT Woot....How exciting is this folks, new helping hands, students and faculty from Otterbein College knitting and crocheting. They've been busy working for our cause through their group, Stitches to Share. They've mentioned our group in their article as one of the groups they're stitching for. Thank you Otterbein Community.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!

  1. Great idea on donating soap/personal care items along with hats and such. I'll try to remember to add some of these things with my next shipment.

  3. This is such a wonderful donation. I never think to pick up these things when I am at the store. I will have to start doing so. Looks like a bulk purchase. Where did you get them Rosemarie?

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?
