Meeting New Helping Hands

 Meeting, face to face is always so much fun.  Lola, our newest pair of helping hands and I were able to meet and enjoyed chatting.  I even got to meet her sweet husband when they dropped off this colorful donation.  Lola and her sister (sorry don't know sister's name), like to loom hats.  As you can see, they've been very busy making medium sized hats of ever color possible.  In the above picture you can see hats with a nice large brim, as well as those not folded.  These hats can fit a variety of people from adults to teens, and with the brim folded large or twice some children as well.

 More hats, a total of 77; just divided them into 2 groups for the photo's.  Many thanks Lola and Sister, we're thrilled to have you join the cause and look forward to more good work from you both.  Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

I'd like to help; but I'm too busy to knit or crochet right now.  I often here that; or I don't knit or crochet and would love to help.  My answer is, YOU CAN.  There are many ways to help.  You can help buy purchasing socks.  Socks are needed all year long.  Mens socks please.  Want to help, but can't do so if it involves spending?  No problem.  Spend time on our blog, reading and posting comments.  Yes, that really does help.  Tell your friends and neighbors and co-workers about us.  They might knit or crochet, or be able to buy socks...and spend time reading and commenting.  Do you blog?  Blog about us, leave a link so people can find the blog that helps spread the word.  Do you have a facebook, 4 Square, Pinterest, or Twitter account?  Talk about us, leave a link...help people find us.  Send out our link to your email account.  Help us spread the word, the more helping hands we can garner, the more people in need we can reach.  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?
