Clapping for a Donation of Mittens


Whew Who...Clapping for this awesome donation of mittens among other things.  You all know how excited I get, that I dance in the street etc when we get a donation of mittens.  Please click this donation from our good friend Sandra R from Florida to get a better look.  As always, she's out done herself with a wonderful donations of mittens, hats, scarves, cotton washcloths, and personal care items.  Additionally, she has tagged and paired each pair of mittens AND attached sizes on her hats.  Truly appreciated by me, by the volunteers who receive our items at the various shelters and those who receive them.

Please folks remember Hats, Mittens, and Slippers need to be tagged with size to facilitate getting to right spot for donation quicker.  Also please attach your mittens and slippers so the pair stays together with a string or piece of yarn.

As always, Sandra many thanks for your long time support Bridge and Beyond, and please keep up the good work.

Please note the category of shawl, shrugs, ponchos etc has reached our little goal, same as last year of 1.........but please please please.........don't let that stop you from making more of these items.  Likewise note we've definitely reached our goal for rain poncho's.  Rain ponchos's serve many purposes so we will probably still need some....down the line, but not for awhile.

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?
