Hats and Scarves in Every Size Help Ohio's Homeless


 Thank you Gail B for your thoughtful donation and your on going support.  This shows you the contents of box number one, 4 crocheted hats, and 6 crocheted scarves from our friend Gail B.
And this is her 2nd box of donations.  Awesome Gail.  Love the variety of sizes, and colors you've really been busy !

Keep up the awesome work Gail!

Folks if you didn't get a chance to see it, please scroll back 3 post and read about the happiness challenge for August in addition to our need of mittens and hats....the really tie in together.  AND scroll back 4 posts if you missed it, I posted some numbers about where we were with donations at this time last year compared to where we currently are.  I think it will help you see where the need lies, as well as see how well we've done in some areas.


Thank you all.

    THANK YOU GAIL! This is truly a wonderful donation. Really gets us in the mood for fall and winter, and the colors are so nice. I love the use of blue and brown. So pretty and fits so many different people. The hats look so warm. The scarves are nice and long. GOOD JOB.

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?
