Donations from the Sunshine State

Thank you Sandie S from Florida for this thoughtful donation of knitted hats and crocheted scarf.  We appreciate you're on going support.  Though I do wish you could send some of your Florida sun our way, lol.  Sandie's hats vary in size which is great, after all; head aren't all the same size.

Keep up the good work, and don't be shy...love to hear from you here on the blog with comments.

**PLEASE folks remember to check the tabs across the top of the blog, frequently to be sure you donations meet required size, color and fiber needs.  If you have any question, please send me an email or leave a comment before you go to the trouble of making and mailing a donation.**

**I will continue to add numbers to the years totals after Dec 31st, so all donations received by years end will be counted in the year they are received.  Since each donation is a day, they will be some over flow into January.  Thus year end numbers won't be finalized until then.*

  1. It never ceases to amaze me how generous people are for Bridge and Beyond. Your enthusiasm must be rubbing off onto others!

    I live in the UK so don't send but do support causes here with my knitting, as do many members of the knitting and craft groups to which I belong.

    It is a joy to read this blog and to admire the compassion of all the donors, as well as seeing their splendid work.

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?
