Generous Crocheted Donation Helps Ohio's Homeless

 Thank you Gail B, long time supporter of Bridge and Beyond for this thoughtful and generous donation.  Gail has included some nice hand cream.  Something needed all year long.  Think how chapped your hands get both winter and summer...while you're inside.  Think how it must be for those exposed to the elements outside, and or those with limited indoor time.
 LOVE LOVE, these nice dark colors for scarves, as they work well for both men and women.  They don't show the dirt which truly matters, as so many even if they are in a housing situation often have very limited launder facilities.  These scarves are nicely sized also for either adult men or women.
AND....such a fun afghan.  Bright lime green and navy...giant granny square style.  The colors are prettier than they show here in the picture.  It was a dark day when I took the photograph and while I did edit a bit on the computer, it's still not quite the real color...but closer.

Many thanks Gail and please keep up the good work.  By the way folks Gail has some exciting news.  Grandchild #4 is on the way....that's always exciting.  Congrats to the whole family Gail.

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.

  1. Congrats Gail! Very nice donation you sent. The personal care items were a good idea. The scarves and afghan will be needed this fall.

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?
