Donations Especially for the Ladies

 Look at this wonderful donation from our good friend Marjorie M from Minnesota!  Loads of wonderful cotton washcloths, crocheted in lots of different colors, personal items geared towards the ladies.  AND see the pretty flowered gift boxes...look to the right and you'll see one opened up...it's an awesome insulated bag which will come in quite handy for the ladies on the streets.  Below is a close up of how the nice bag zips up.  I love these and will keep my eyes open for others.
Until recently, when I read an article indicating female supplies are in short supply at shelters I hadn't thought about how important having tampons and pads were and how demoralizing it must be for the ladies not to have clean items to change into during that time.  Thank you Marjorie for including those items in your personal care items.

As always, please keep up the good work.

  1. I think, and I could be wrong, that most of us think that the people under the bridge are men.I suppose in most cases they are, but I am sure that in a lot of cases, especially in the gentler months, there are ladies there with their men.I usually lean toward the men in my donations, but in this case with the summer approaching I wanted to do something for the ladies who are standing by their men in the elements.Lots of things that ladies need that men dont. Hope this can be of some use to those of our friends of the female persuasion.:+)God bless them.
    Hot and humid here today and for the next two days before another cool down. Storms tonight and especially tomorrow night.GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS.

    1. You are 200% on the mark Marj. And sometimes the women are there, in the eliminates solo.

  2. That is so true about feminine supplies so to speak. I hadn't thought of that before in relation to the homeless. Definitely wonderful donation!

  4. Very nice donation Marjorie! The women will love to have the personal care items. It would be hard to live on the streets and not have those items we all needed at "that time of the month".

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?
