Personal Care Items so Essential for Homeless, All Year Long


Thank you Dianne L for this thoughtful donation.  So many really needed and appreciated items. Those hand warmer are awesome, and the lip balm really helps out for our folks living out in the elements.  Lots of good items here.  I delivery personal care items to Rae, our friend who feeds the homeless on Sat mornings, and to the shelters; they are always appreciated.  Personal care items are truly needed all year long, regardless of the weather conditions.

Many thanks and please keep up the good work!

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, but.........work towards even more.

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?
