Helping Children in Need

Pretty yellow daffodils from the yard, it only it were that time of year again and we had the rest of spring and summer ahead of us, instead of cold, wet, fall upon us with winter looming it's dark ugly head so near.  With each passing year I dread more and more to see fall come and begin counting the days til Spring.  And of course it is during this time, we think more about those living in the elments, those without a roof over their heads, those less fortunate then we are.  

It becomes increasingly more important that we knit, crochet, loom and donate to those who need us.  Men, Women, and Children on the streets, in the shelters, some barely above the streets and shelters.  Our hats, scarves, mittens, slippers, socks and personal care items do make a difference.

For children, it helps them get through the day at school.  It helps them be able to go outside with the friends at recess, to not appear so different.

We distribute our hand made items to several schools in the area near the Bridge Folks and several shelters with the help of Lynn and her husband.  Highland Elementary School is one of those we've donated to.  This is a lovely response from the school for recent donation I wanted to share with you all.........and to add my thanks to hers for all you all do. (this is a copy and paste of her email)

Good Afternoon, Ms. Holladay,

I apologize for not sending this earlier.  I personally want to thank you and extend my appreciation for your wonderful gifts.  I'm sure that the children will love them.  Highland, children has such a great need and these items couldn't have come at a better time, being that the weather is changing so swiftly.  

Once. again, I thank you for your wonderfully, hand-crafted gifts, that was created with love, for our children.

Ms. Lynn Graves
Secretary, 
Highland Elementary School

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.

    My mind is on the homeless today. We are getting up to 14 inches of snow, it is 28 degrees and nasty out there. It is too early for this even in Minnesota, but with schools closing and the TV channels announcing that the shelters are full, one has to wonder where everyone is and how they are survivng. Only God knows. I am here in a warm house with plenty of food, and a warm sweatshirt. Dogs in here with me, sleeping ,warm., almost feeling guilty,for the life I have. God bless us all and God Bless and keep the Homeless.

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?
