Warmth and Snuggly Donated

 In yesterdays post I mentioned a church group with Dorna and Casey, and them spreading the news to other church members.  These little blankets were made by Stephanie and Lena D in the same church group.  The two pinks will make a little girl feel loved, as well as warm and red will work nicely for a little boy.  These are fleece blankets.
 More pink for the wee ones and rainbow blanket could work for a infant girl or boy.  These ladies are all from Canton Ohio.  We welcome you all and are thrilled to have more helping hands.  Keep up the good work.

**Reminding you all to please make sure your knitted and crocheted items are made from washable fibers.  Things requiring special care, and or dry cleaning such as silks, wool, suede etc aren't appropriate for our folks living outdoors and or shelters without means to do more then the very basic laundry.**

Donations: 2012 

Hats 991  (22 more hats then we donated last year)
Scarves: 633  (162 scarves over what we donated last year)
Slippers: 146 (18 over last year)
Sweaters, Ponchos, Shawls, vests:9
Afghans: 45+6=51  (4 short of last year)
Mittens: 299 (41 more then last year)
Squares: 950 (98 more then last year)
Socks: 208 (125 less then last year)
Rain Poncho's 213 (3 less then last year)
Cotton Washcloths 568 (277 more donated then last year)

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)

**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.*


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!

  2. Thanks for the instructions on how to post.

    I have donated items to several charities through the years but this is the first charity to acknowledge contributions, some don't and I have had to contact them to see if they received my donation.

    I get ideas from what others have donated and the comments on contributions. Feedback is good.
    :-)

  3. Thanks for the visits and comments, they are very much appreciated.

    Hey anonymous, glad you visited and left comment; next time...please leave your name. I post a new post every day, and always acknowledge donations, even when I can't ID the person a photo is taken etc. I believe it's important for people to know their items go where they think. I want everything to be above board and transparent. People don' donate for the thanks, but most truly do want to know how their items get distributed and to whom.

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?
