Fall is Here, Homeless Need YOUR Help.

Thank you Mary C for this thoughtful donation.  LOVE the variety of sizes, colors and styles of crocheted cotton washcloths!  Rounds, square...big and small.  You really covered it all.  Mary's also included 2 nice warm hats in great dark colors.

As we gear up for Fall, now that summer's past we're reminded that homeless people do best in darker colors.  They don't have means to do laundry so darker colors work well to not show the dirt...AND darker colors help them not call attention to themselves.  Bright, bold, and pastels aren't as suitable for our friends living in the elements.

Many thanks Mary for your support, hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond, as we work to warm Ohio's Homeless.

Please keep up the good work!

Hats:     122 - 2 = 120
Scarves:  94 -1=93
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers:  66
Slippers:   40
Rain Poncho's:   +106
Cotton Washcloths:  281 - 7 = 274
Afghans:  8
Socks:   124
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands:   7
Shawls and shrugs, ponchos, sweaters & vests etc 0
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?
