Warmth for Ohio's Homeless from Kansas

Hello and Welcome Joyce H from the state of Kansas.  We're thrilled to have you join us here on Bridge and Beyond and hope to see you and your crochet hook and knitting needles often.  Joyce has donated 7 nice thick hats and 2 scarves to warm Ohio's Homeless.  Not only is Joyce our newest pair of helping hands, but the first from the state of Kansas.  I'm always excited to get new helping hands and to add another state to our donation map.

Please scroll to the bottom of the blog to see the map.  Is your state noted?  Please check the 3 lists here on Bridge and Beyond: List of folks who donate and have a blog, those who don't blog but have a facebook, ravelry or crochetville etc profile page, and the 3rd list of those who donate without a profile page.  Make sure you are listed, and if you're not listed and or don't have a state listed with your name please make contact.  Leave a comment with your name and state so I can add it, and or email at sandycrochet@gmail.com.  Would love to get all 3 lists truly updated and current, but need your help to do so.

We've now grown from 72 to 74% of the states participating (from 36 to 37 states of 50).

**Reminder folks, make sure all your ends/tails are worked into your work.  When they're not, I lay your item/donations aside until I have time to complete or repair them.  The ONLY ends that should not be worked in as you go is the final tail of a square**


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!

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?
