Special Delivery for Homeless

Thank you Nikki S for this thoughtful donation of goodies.  Nikki's crocheted hats, scarves, and a shawl.  She's also included personal care items in her generous donation.  Having a warm hat and scarf really is important in the fight to stay warm when you're homeless.

Special thanks Nikki for hand delivering your donation, as well as your friend Christina's donation.

The weather has indeed turned making donations very much needed.  We still have sunny pretty days, but nights and early mornings have gotten cool and it won't be long before we'll have frost on the ground.  So please to have people like Nikki helping those in need here on Bridge and Beyond.  You all are so very much appreciated.

**For anyone new to the blog, the counting below maybe confusing.  When 2016 began, we started with the number of items donated the previous year and are counting down in hopes of hitting and surpasses the number of items donated last year.**

Hats:     43 -5 =38
Scarves: 63 -2 =61
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers:  66
Slippers:   36
Rain Poncho's:   +106
Cotton Washcloths:  274

Misc: items like personal care, headbands etc and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted.


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?
