Scarves Keep Homeless Warmer

Thank you Marie-Jeanne for this thoughtful donation of crocheted and knitted scarves.  What a nice variety of colors to please and warm 7 more homeless people in need.  Marie-Jeanne is our newest pair of helping hands.  So glad you found us Marie-Jeanne and hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

We're still having winter coat weather many days and nights, frost, high winds and lots of rain so warm items are still very much needed by those less fortunate than us.  Some folks are living out in the elements, some in temporary shelters who still spend the bulk of their day outside.  So please folks, keep your hands busy with hook, yarn, and needles.  The need continues.

Thank you again Marie-Jeanne, and welcome to Bridge and Beyond.

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?
