Donations Help Those in Need

Many thanks Gail B for this awesome donation of hats, scarves, and personal care items.  WOW!  Take a look folks, a wonderful variety of hat sizes and colors and nice big scarves, perfect to wrap up for warmth which is so needed.  Additional thanks for tagging each hat with the size  That saves enormous time both here at my house, and at the various shelters by the volunteers.  It also means items get to the right people quicker.

Gail has been a long time supporter and friend here on Bridge and Beyond.  We certainly value all the love and time you've put into your various donations over the years.

Thank you, and please keep up the good work.

Hats:    277 -17 = 260
Scarves: 139 -7 = 132
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers:  86
Slippers: 77
Rain Poncho's:   +95
Cotton Washcloths:  362 -1 =361

Misc: items like personal care, headbands etc and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted.

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?
