Warm Dry Feet Important for Homeless

Thank you Marjorie M for this thoughtful donation and your continued support of Bridge and Beyond.  Marjorie had donated personal care items which are needed both by the folks living in the elements and by the folks entering shelters, as often they have nothing when they get there.  And warm, dry, feet is HUGE!  Having warm dry feet is important all year long, in every season, and is often a key element in keeping someone healthy and more.......ALIVE in colder wetter months.

Thank you Marjorie for your generous and kind donation and your caring heart!

**Folks please remember not to knot and cut with knitted or crocheted items.  Knots are always the weakest link in any garment or project.  Always leave tails when changing colors or adding yarn and work in your tails to avoid raveling.**

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?
