Afghans Give Hope and Warmth

Look at this very pretty cheerful afghan our good friend and long time supporter AnneMarie from NY crocheted and donated.  It's gorgeous!  Such a pretty afghan and makes me think of sunshine and spring...oh come on Spring.  Afghans provide warmth for sure, but they also provide hope for a brighter future and congratulations on the next phase of your life to our families through Homeless Families Foundation.  As most of you know, families receive afghans when they transition from shelter living to a permanent housing situation.

AND she's been busy knitting and crocheting hats, scarves and fingerless gloves!  Awesome donation that will reach many people in need.  Thank you AnneMarie for your thoughtfulness, your ongoing support of Ohio's Homeless and your generosity.

Many many thanks for all you do for Bridge and Beyond!  (And folks, keep checking in, there's more)

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 just to match last years numbers, towards even more.

Hats:  394-15=379
Scarves: 179-2=177
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 110 -5=105
Slippers: 104
Rain Poncho's:  105
Cotton Washcloths: 444
Afghans:   19-1=18
Socks: 201
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands:  11
Shawls and shrugs 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.

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?
