Helping Hands from Minnesota for Ohio's Homeless

 This is box # 1, you may have to click to see everything.  There are hats, scarves, and headbands in many different colors and sizes.  This donation pile comes to us here in Ohio, from new helping hands.  Meet, our newest pair of helping hands from Minnesota.  She wishes to remain anonymous; but I hope you'll help me welcome her.  So, many thanks "Minnesota Helping Hands".  We're thrilled to have you helping the cause of helping Homeless here in Ohio.
 When I opened the 2nd box, I though there must be a better way for you to see things, so...believe I got a little smart laying out this donation of scarves from our newest member.  Nice sizes and colors here for our men folk!
 And since I liked the new idea I had when I opened boxed 2, I did the same thing here for you with box 3.  You can see from her variety of colors and sizes she has something for everyone.  Well done, and again thank you and WELCOME.

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?
