Help for Ohio's Homeless is Needed

Folks the weather has already started changing, colder damp nights, getting darker and cooler earlier with each passing day. Busy your hooks and needles please so we're able to meet the needs of the hundreds that are without. The hundreds that sleep out in cold in the elements, and the hundreds that spend a night here and there in a shelter, as well as those families in the family shelters...working their way to permanent housing. They all need our help. Men, Women, and Children need warm solid, non white, non wool items. PLEASE see information regarding colors and sizes in the tabs across the top of the blog BEFORE you mail a donation.

Who knows who the above thoughtful donation is from? EVERYONE! I'm smiling and know you all are too. It's from our good friend, and long time supporter, RoseMarie. You can always tell by the colors she crochets with as well as her signature flower decorations. Many thanks RoseMarie for your support, we so appreciate you and your hook. Look at the cute soap sacks folks. The soap sacks as well as the washcloths are made from cotton. Perfectly done and so useable. She's included a bar of soap in the little bag as well.

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?
