Helping hands from Virginia Donates Scarves

Helping hands from Virginia donates scarves for cold homeless folks in Ohio....how sweet is that folks. I love how people from all over (please see the map at the bottom of the blog that shows which states have people who've donated), give of themselves with their knitting and their crocheting. They share they skills, they share their hearts and it does indeed make a difference. It physically warms those in need certainly; but it does far more then that. It gives people hope, hope for a better future. They know someone, somewhere took time to make something special just for them. And that's why we focus on handmade..........it makes it that much more special. Many thanks for our newest pair of helping hands, Karen B from Virginia. We're thrilled you joined us, and hope to see you here often. Please keep up the good work.

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?
