New Helping Hands for Ohio's Homeless

 Please say hello and welcome to our newest pair of helping hands, Joyce B.  Joyce is a fellow Ohioan who graciously dropped off donations while she was in town to support several family members participating in The Columbus Marathon.  Thrilled to have you join us Joyce.  Joyce has been busy both knitting and crocheting.  She's donated some headbands, and scarves, and 
this lovely ripple afghan.  Everyone loves a ripple afghan.  What awesome colors, this color combination can be nicely used with either men or women.  

Keep up the good work Joyce, hope to see you here often.  Perhaps next time you're in town we'll be able to meet up.  I always love meeting the good folks who support Bridge and Beyond so lovingly.

**Remember to check back in for more pictures of Joyce's generous donation.  If you're reading this blog for the first time you may not know, I recently decided to put fewer items in each picture.......want you to be able to better see these lovely donations, and wanting to be sure we can have a post daily, dividing some of the larger donations with multiple pictures seems a good way to help ensure that.  Having posts daily aids our placement with regard to SEO, which is an important factor to attract more helping hands.......it makes us easier to find when someone is searching the net**

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?
