Donating is good for the Soul

Thank you Diana K for your on going support of our cause here on Bridge and Beyond.  Warming Ohio's Homeless is a job that just doesn't go away.  These has been an especially brutal winter and I fear even with the days on the calendar saying spring is close...it isn't by a long shot.  As I write this scheduled post we still have snow on the ground.

Our knitting and crocheting  serves several purposes.  It gives us who are blessed with a roof over our heads the ability to give back, a way to show our gratitude for what we have.  It gives us the ability to physically warm someone in need, and it gives us the ability to give someone hope for a better tomorrow.  Homemade items made from our hearts tell that cold homeless person, someone cares.  Someone cares about you and that's pretty special.

Keep your yarn close folks, the need is great.

  2. Very nice donation Diana! The red is so cheerful, a nice set for someone.
    It is in the 30's today, 40's on Monday and then more snow for Weds. Winter doesn't want to stop in MI. At least we will get rid of some of the snow before the next storm.

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?
