Slipper, Socks, Poncho's aid the Homeless

Thank you AnneMarie for your on going support of Bridge and Beyond.  AnneMarie has been with us for a good while and is always very generous and very supportive.  She's crocheted 10 pairs of slippers in various sizes, and labeled them with size.  She also included personal care items in her donation for the homeless, as well as poncho's.  The plastic poncho's are always so well received.  Trying to stay dry, even when the weather's warmer isn't all that easy to do when you're out in the elements. 

And wet feet, never good so the socks she also donated are awesome.  As always, many thanks and please keep up the good work AnneMarie!

**Reminder folks to avoid using novelty yarns and suede, avoid using white, beige and other pastels, avoid lots of stripes (solids are always better for all ages), avoid bright colors as homeless do not like to call attention to themselves (with the outside garmets like hats and scarves)...so the nice darker colors are always preferred AND they don't show the dirt as much.  Please label all hats, mittens, and slippers with size.**

Hats: 489
Scarves: 275
Socks: 65+10=75
Afghans: 12
Slippers: 47+10=57
Rain Ponchos: 5+50=55
Mittens & Gloves: 57
Cotton Washcloths: 181
Shawls, Sweaters, Vests, Poncho's, Skirts, and Shrugs etc. 8
Neck warmers, cowls, gators, wrists warmers/fingerless gloves and other misc items aren't tabulated; as well as personal care items

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?
