  1. Wonderful donation AnneMarie! Something for everyone. This is a very thoughtful donation.
    Very warm here in MI today. It is to be only 71 on Sat and Sun, only in the 60's. I sure feel sorry for the homeless in this weather we are having.

    1. Warmer weather is better than the cold winter, but it's still very difficult with the changing temps, the wind, rain, and storms we all have this time of the year. Right you are Sue, makes you feel bad for them trying to maintain.

  2. GOOD JOB ANNEMARIE. this is a very useful donation with all the different things you sent. Many things are needed now that this weather is trying to decide what to do. We are on a roller coaster here in MN. Hot for a couple days and then down in the lower numbers again. It is hard to know how to dress or what you will need for the day. Rain all day today, and cooler in the 60s which is definitely not a warm day when you are wet too. 48 degrees tonight and if you got wet earlier today that is going to be very uncomfortable if you are living outside.Any dry clothing, socks, scarves, hats, must be truly appreciated by the men and women we are trying to help.Your personal items will be needed also, and the ponchos are priceless.Again thank you so much for all your help. GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS. marj in minnesota

    1. So very true Marj, 60's doesn't sound bad, but if you're wet and can't get properly dried off and warmed up as the temps continue to drop at night, not a happy situation. AnneMarie did an excellent job covering all areas with her donation.

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?
