Donating Knitted Cotton Washcloths Helps The Homeless



Thank you Sue S for this thoughtful donation of beautiful knitted cotton washcloths.  LOVE the variety of colors.  Cotton Washcloths have several purposes.  They are used both as dishcloths and as washcloths for bathing.  People love them.  Men and Women both use them.  They are given to our friend Rae for the folks living out in the elements, and they are donated to various shelters.  The shelters use them both when folks spend the night in a shelter, as well as when families transition from shelter living to permanent housing in their welcome home packs.

Many thanks Sue, and please keep up the good work.  

If you're a person who would like to help those in need, but don't knit or crochet, please scroll back one post and consider donating meals to feed those who are hungry through a Go Fund Me Account.  Please think about donating even $5.00 instead of buying yourself a cup of coffee at Starbucks or some other shop while out and about.

**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:    +13(Look we've past last years mark)
Scarves:  +174 (We've past last years mark)

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?
