Avon Calling and Helping Homeless

If you're anywhere close to my age, you well remember the saying, "Avon Calling".  When I was young my Mother sold Avon.  I loved watching her open her deliveries to bag up her orders, to play with some of the samples.....it was way cool.  She walked door to door back in the day.  Shortly after graduating from high school, I too sold Avon; though I was not nearly as successful as she had been and it was short lived when I got a full time position as a clerk typist.

Fast forward Avon is now light years ahead of those door to door sales.  They, like so many business have a presents on the web.  YOU can shop from the comfort of your computer chair with a friend of ours, Sherry K and when you do; you'll be helping the homeless and others in need.  You might now be scratching your head saying...Sandy's gone off the deep end..again... how does buying Avon's lipstick or jewelry help the homeless?  The money our friend and long time supporter here on Bridge and Beyond makes from sales goes to her purchasing of yarn...........which turns into awesome goodness from her hook and is then donated to the homeless at Faith Mission, or others in need.  You could make it a double win win, lip gloss, deodorant, shampoo, lotions, soaps all are items we donate on a regular basis.  Personal care items are needed 12 months of the year by families in all the shelters, by those living under the bridges.  You could order from Sherry K, donate personal care to Bridge and Beyond and help Sherry with the yarn she needs to help others.  So hope over to her blog and see the wonderful items she makes HERE, and visit her AVON page HERE.  

AND, the other plus of ordering Avon from Sherry,  you're still helping even when time is tight and you can't knit or crochet.  AND you can tell all your non knitting and crocheting friends, this is a perfect way for them to help.

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?
