Homeless Men Need YOU

A little humor for you to enjoy while you're busy knitting or crocheting or buying yarn to knit or crochet.

Hope you enjoy this, I did when I saw it on facebook a couple of weeks back and saved it to my computer.  Thought I'd share this with you while I get caught up posting pictures and writing blog posts from your donations.

We've had 2 requests in the last 10 days for items needed folks.  One from our friend Rae who feeds the homeless living outdoors (mostly men) on Saturday mornings.  She needs hats and scarves and mittens.  A delivery was made to her; but she is in need of more.  Donations suitable for men have been down....so asking everyone to kick it up a notch, please and thanks.  Please remember items should be solid to be warm, dark solid colors best (so not to call attention to themselves and not to show dirt), and large enough to an adult male.

In addition, we've received a request from Holy Family Soup Kitchen.  I'll be able to make a small delivery based on what came in since making the delivery to Rae; but in both cased more is needed.

Items needed:
Hats
Scarves
Mittens

All items listed above are links to those tabs with specifics, as well as patterns that might be helpful to you.  PLEASE measure your scarves folks, small scarves just don't work well for the men.  PLEASE tag ALL hats and mittens with size and pair your mittens with a tie or safety pin.

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.

    Will be shipping a box of hats within the next couple of weeks. They will all be adult male hats so should be of some help. About 20 I think. My sister is working on her end too and will be able to bring some when she comes for Thanksgiving.She has been working on hats for the homeless in her area, but will share with B&B as well. Please know that you are in our prayers and we will do what we can.

  2. So sorry to hear that the need is great again.
    I have one scarf done, just need to get it washed. I was waiting until I had another one done. But I will try to get the one out this week. One is better than none.
    The picture you posted is so cute!

  3. My box is finally full (yeah!) So I will be shipping it sometime in the next two weeks. In it you will find an assortment of things- hats and mittens for men are among them.

    Your pic from facebook makes me LOL! Perhaps I should take my chubby hubby with me yarn shopping.......a new form of a diet!!

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?
