Donations from Illinois to Help Ohio's Needy





Thank you Betty B from Illinois for this thoughtful donation.  Betty's crocheted and knitted 18 cotton washcloths, 13 squares, 2 hats, and a scarf.  What a nice selection.  Squares for ghans are on the left and cotton cloths on the right in the above picture.  Many thanks and please keep up the good work.

Betty vacuumed sealed her donations which allowed her to fit it in a much smaller box.  Now I'm not suggestion you all run out and purchase a vacuum sealer; but if you have one...you might enjoy using it for this purpose to use smaller boxes and save some on postage due to the smaller box.


Donations: 2012
Hats 953+2=955  (14 hats from the number we donated last year)
Scarves: 594+1=595 (124 scarves over what we donated last year)
Slippers: 144

Misc Items are not counted individually (such as personal care items, headbands, gators, yarn, wrist warmers/fingerless gloves, face-masks, neck warmers, t-shirts, soap, deodorant, shampoo, toothbrushes, hand and foot warmers Teddy Bears and footies etc)

**Please remember to ALWAYS include a note with your name and your email address in your donations.  I MUST be able to make contact with you, even if you wish to be anonymous.  I spend far too much time trying to determine who someone is; as I have no way of knowing if you've forgotten to include note or if you wish to be anonymous.  This problem seems to be growing...causing me to spend hours trying to play detective.  **

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?
