Donations Help many Homeless

Thank yiou Tristi for the awesome donation and for taking the time to drop it off on my door step.  Love the variety of the doantion of hats, slippers, socks, cotton cloths and socks. Also love how you've tagged all the hats with size.

Thank you for your on going support and please keep up the good work.  Each hat you make keeps a head warm, and keeping a head warm, feet warm and dry is essential.  Folks, as I type this post it's only 48 degrees inside my house.  It's cold.  Our furnace picked a bad wkend to decide not to work.  The repair is expected momentarily........but, if I'm this cold in doors, think of those folks less fortunate then me.  Think of those living in the elements, in the shelters.  Truly is mind boggling.  I know I'll be warm again in short order, they don't have that luxury.

Keep your yarn close at hand folks and know that each item you make truly makes a difference.

End of year totals not to far off, so please keep checking in.

  1. Wonderful start to the new year Trish. Lovely collection of colors. Lots of different sizes. This is a wonderful donation. So happy to see that we are all back at it for the new year. Many needy people out there and the weather is brutal. We are heading down to 18 below zero on Monday. Wind chill of 40 below.Gov has closed the schools. Definitely people who need our help this winter. Prayers for the homeless. AGAIN GOOD JOB TRISH.

  2. Wonderful donation Trish! That will help lots of people to stay warmer in this awful cold weather we are having. I hope you have heat now Sandy. More snow is on the way and very cold weather is coming again.

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?
