Warming Homeless Feet with this Donation

Thank you Marjorie M for this thoughtful donation of crocheted cotton washcloths and socks.  It's awesome!  Cold, wet feet are very dangerous.  Having clean dry socks can improve health factors many time over for our cold homeless friends.  Even for those lucky enough to get a night here and there in a shelter, the ability to wash socks or dry wet socks is not a given; so having a supply of clean dry warm socks is greatly appreciated.

Love the soft cotton washcloths, they have many uses for those living out in the elements, those living in shelters, as well as those transitioning to permanent housing.  They are used as washcloths and as dishcloths.  Excellant!

Many thank Marjorie for your on going support.  Keep up the good work.

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?
