Wanted to post pictures of these plastic type mailers. Been awhile since we've talked about packages and postage costs. Our good friend Sandie P from Louisiana used these a good deal of the time. Now, depending on what you're sending...either here to Bridge and Beyond or elsewhere, this might be a good option for you. Yes you have to buy these vs using a box you might already have at the house. However, it might be cheaper in the long run because these are extremely light weight and therefore you're paying less to ship it. Additionally, they are water proof.
The other thing to consider is the cost of postage when you send an item or two at a time, (like when you finish it) vs saving and sending a lot in one large box. It all depends on where you are, and the weight of what you're sending. Just thought it worth mentioning in case it helps any of you.
Thank you and please continue knitting and crocheting and donating. Homeless helped through Bridge and Beyond appreciate it.

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.
