The picture has nothing to do with Bridge and Beyond, but since it's Thursday, I decided to that because I sadly don't have a picture to share of a generous donation from our friend and long time supporter Sue S. I've been having "issues" adjusting to my new computer, transferring pictures and not being able to find them afterwards. This windows 10 is very different it seems to me from my old Vista (what was that 3 or 4 operating systems ago).
Sue donated 2 scarves, 6 cotton washcloths, some always needed personal care items including those chemical hand warmers, a hat and a handband. I wish I could show you.
Thank you Sue and please keep up the good work. Folks as I write this blog post it's 25 degrees, that's the warmest it's been in about a week. Yesterday morning when I got up, it was 3 and really warmed up to 8, by the time I had to leave the house. Please keep our homeless in your thoughts and prayers and do what you can with you knitting needles and crochet hooks.
I'm going to try something a little different with keeping our stats. I'm listing our end numbers from 2015 and will subtract our current number as means of keeping our goal in front of us. I'll show the goal number in Red. Let's strive not match last years numbers, but.........work towards even more. Thank you for all you do. As time goes on, we won't see the year end numbers, we'll see the previous goal and subtract the new donation from it. Hopefully we'll find this helpful and not too cumbersome...if so, we'll return to our previous format.
Hats: 444 -1 = 443
Scarves:186 -2 = 184
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 123
Rain Poncho's: 105
Cotton Washcloths: 454 -6 = 448
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands: 12 -1 = 11
Shawls and shrugs 2-1=1
Misc: items like personal care and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted
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.
