Thank you Lisa M from Philly, our newest pair of helping hands. Like Robin yesterday, Lisa is from the group on Ravelry that rotates what charity they make items for. WElcome to the group. Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.
Crocheted Cotton Washcloths have so many uses. They are used for folks who live out in the elements both as washcloths and dishcloths. They are used by those in the shelters when they first get a night off the streets, can you imagine how good it feels to take a shower with a nice soft hand made (knitted or crocheted) cotton cloth...we all know they are much nicer than a regular washcloth. AND they are used when families transition from shelters living to their permanent housing situation...they are included in the welcome home packs and again are used as either dishcloths or washcloths.
Many thanks Lisa.

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.
