Blowing up our logo, sorry it makes it a bit blurry folks; but it seems appropriate to celebrate this ....the 1500 blog post from Bridge and Beyond, where we've talked about, shown pictures of, shared patterns of, and discussed the need of Hats, Scarves, and Mittens.......and more.
Fairy Princess, Beth was one of our earliest pairs of helping hands here on Bridge and Beyond. She's the one that made our logo. She and I became acquainted through blogging many years ago and while she no longer participates here on Bridge and Beyond, I've never felt the need to select a new logo. Thought this served us well these past 5-6 years.
Thank you Beth.
And this beautiful pink Lilly from my back yard is my way of saying thank you to you all, for knitting, for crocheting, for mailing, for delivering your donations to me through the years for Bridge and Beyond. Loved this Lilly, but sadly so did the squirrels. They kept digging it up and I kept replanting it.
Below is a Thank You from Cindy Leonard, the Principal from West Broad Street Elementary School, one of the schools our friend, MaryLynn (LYnn) distributes our goodies too. This school is very much in the area where our Bridge folk live in the elements, is also near Homeless Families Foundation whom we donate to, as well Holy Family Soup Kitchen . Wanted to pass along her Thanks to you all whom make this possible.
Dear Ms. Holladay,
We would like to thank you and your organization for the donation of hats, gloves and scarves for our students. We appreciate your generosity and dedication to helping the less fortunate. Please continue to keep us in mind in the future.
West Broad Elem.
When communicating with Cindy I asked a couple of questions in order to tell you a bit more about this school we've donated to. They have 520 students from Pre k-5th and about 95% of them are on The Free Lunch Program. 95% of one school (494 students), have need. That's alot of need folks, alot of cold hungry kids. This isn't the first time we've donated to this school, though the first for this year. Just know, when you donate....YOU truly do fill a need.
Bless You All
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.
