Sister Join Forces to Support Ohio's Homeless

 Our friend Marjorie M from Minnesota has been busy spreading the word of our need and has recruited her sister, Kari S from Wisconsin to be our newest pair of helping hands.  How awesome is that!  When the awesome sisters got together for the recent Thanksgiving Holiday, Kari past along these 2 boxes of crocheted and knitted goodies to Marjorie who got them in the mail to us.  AWESOME!

You can see a lots of variety in her hats, and scarves.  She also included some personal care items, and headbands.  We're thrilled to have you join us Kari S from Wisc, and hope to see you often here at Bridge and Beyond.  And thanks too Marjorie for helping us out by recruiting your sister, well done!  Marjorie dedicated this wonderful donation to her husband, John's memory.  I'm sorry for your loss, Marjorie.  I'm sure he feels honored to have you remember him this way.

Keep up the good work ladies!

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?
