Donations for Homeless

Thank you Theresa A for this thoughtful donation of goodies to aid the homeless and others in need here in Central Ohio.  Quite a nice assortment of personal care items, cotton washcloths, socks, rain poncho's and hot pads.  Folks click to see the difference.  Notice the 5 pads on the left (blue-green, red-white and blue, mixed blue and brown, solid green and mixed red-white-brown), they are double thickness and will make a nice addition to the welcome packs Homeless Families puts together for families moving from shelter living into a permanent housing situation.

AND, also note in the lower right corner, the little blue and white packages.  Folks this is a really good idea....I never thought of it, but Theresa has included 2 emergency blankets!  I'm going to talk to Rae, our friend who feeds the homeless on Sat mornings to ask if this is something I should add to our list of things to collect.  I think it sounds like a real winner.  Good thinking on your part Theresa.  Stay tuned folks.

Many thanks Theresa, please keep up the good work.  Many people will benefit from your thoughtfulness!

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?
