Hat Trick of Help for The Homeless

I built a pyramid with 32 packages (3 bars per package) of soap. lol, that was kinda fun. Our good friend AnneMarie sent soap and more soap. The shelters love getting personal care items as well as the warm goodies. I'm calling this donation of 3 3's a hat trick of help. For any hockey fans out there watching The Stanley Cup Hockey Play off's, and a hat trick is someone who scores 3 goals for those of you who aren't into hockey. She also crocheted 3 pairs of mittens, 3 hats, and 3 scarves. Nicely done and many thanks AnneMarie for your thoughtful donations. Please keep up the good work. Always a pleasure seeing you here on Bridge and Beyond.

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?
