Helping Hands from Minnesota aid Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Marjorie M from Minnesota, your thoughtful donation of cotton washcloths, scarves, gloves, and personal care items is fabulous.  Each and every items so needed and appreciated.  The value of soap, razors, toothbrush kits is truly more then any of us can relate to.  My husband and daughter and I used to camp, and having the ability to clean up...to shower, heavenly!

Please keep up the good work.

Remember folks, when you need to give your hands a rest from knitting or crocheting, please spend time on the blog.  It helps the blogs placement with search engines which in turn helps us reach more people who have helping hands....that means we're able to help more people.  I know many of you do come and read, but are shy and don't leave comments.  PLEASE, please do leave comments.  Let us know you were here, support each other's work by leaving comments.  We all enjoy that, AND when you leave comments, that helps the blog even further.  You do not need to be a blogger to leave comments, it doesn't compromise your security.  Beneath the post click the word comment, a white box pops up, type your comment in that box, then click the drop down box and select the option that says name and url, leave your first name and last initial (no need to leave a full name unless you want to), leave the url space blank (normally that's where a blog address would go).  That's it, quick and easy.  It does truly help us, so please leave a comment and encourage your friends to do the same, please avoid using the anonymous signature option in the drop down box, that doesn't help us at all.  In fact it usually triggers the spam feature.

Help us spread the word of the need, send your friends....even if they're not knitters and crocheters to our blog.  You never know who might want to help in some capacity.

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?
