Donations Help the Homeless

Thank you Dorothy M!  What a wonderful and thoughtful donation of goodies you've knitted up for our homeless and others in need.  Dorothy has been a long time supporter of Bridge and Beyond, we so appreciate her efforts.  She's knitted and crocheted slippers, mittens, and hats.  You know how excited I get when someone has the ability to knit mittens!  She's also donated much needed hand warmers, socks, rain poncho's and personal care items.  Love the nice manly colors you've chosen for the hats and that you nicely tagged your mittens, slippers, and hats with the size!

Keep up the good work Dorothy, YOU are awesome!

Folks when I made deliveries yesterday to Homeless Families Foundation I saw first hand how some of our hand crafted donations are being used.  Not only does Homeless Families Foundation work with families one on one to help them with housing, job search and training....but those in the area in need, who may not be "their" clients are able to enter the entryway (sorta of room between 2 doors) where some of our goods are laid out so those outside and cold can come in to obtain what they need.  I recognized some of our work and it brought a smile to my face.  They don't want to shut the locals out because they aren't a family when they need help, even though "the family" is their focus.  It was heartwarming to me to know how far reaching our donations are.  I hope you all feel the same and PLEASE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

Upcoming blog posts for donations from: RoseMarie, Cheryl B, SSeger, Barbara F, Susan A, and myself.  Please frequent the blog and do try and leave comments.  Remember with the changes in blogspot...you can no longer leave the url portion of name and url blank, you can though use your RAV, or Facebook or other profile links/url there.

  1. What a great donation Dorothy M! I like the hat and mitten sets that you made. Your donation will help keep some people warmer this cold week.

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?
