Cotton Washcloths Donated for Homeless Shelters

Thank you Emily P from Ohio for this colorful array of cotton washcloths.  The shelters love getting these cotton washcloths for the folks.  Emily has also included some wonderful personal care items...something always in demand.

Emily is our newest pair of helping hands, welcome Emily.  Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

Thought I mention I always collect the soaps, shampoo, lotions etc from the hotels when we travel, it's amazing how fast they add up.  Makes for a good way, without spending money to donate personal care items.  Do you travel often?  Does you hubby or co-workers travel for business?  Ask someone today to take a zip lock bag with them in their travels and bring back some goodies for you.  Sometimes you get a little sewing kit which is always nice, sometimes mouth wash...just depends where you go.

2013 Donation Totals 
Hats:  55
Scarves: 38
Socks: 28+2=30
Afghans: 2 
Slippers: 10
Rain Ponchos: 2 
Cotton Washcloths: 12
Misc. Items: include personal care, headbands, handwarmers etc aren't tabulated

**The focus for the remainder of January is slippers.  AND, we'll continue focusing on feet in February.  Cold, and wet feet are miserable.  So...for the month of February we'll continue with slippers as our focus AND add socks for the feet.  Socks are store bought and should be for men who live outdoors 99% of the time.  Remember to check out the slipper tab at the top of the blog for information about sizing, colors, styles, fiber type etc.  You might enjoy using one of the patterns available there as well.   February  continues to be about feet.**

****Are you aware of our addition of accepting quilted scarves, and quilts?  Are you up to speed and a member of our new Facebook Group?****

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

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?
