Donating Helps the Homeless

Plastic wear.  My 90 year old hates to throw away things that have a purpose.  Whenever he eats out, like fast food or carryout, he ends up with these plastic knifes, spoons, and forks.  Some are packaged with napkins and salt and pepper, some are solo. He's been saving these for awhile.   He asked me if one of the shelters could use them.  Instead I suggested they'd be helpful for Rae, who prepares meals for folks living out in the elements.  And so I added these to last delivery to her.

Thanks Dad for participating with Bridge and Beyond and helping those in need.

We have a few more donations to count in with our numbers for 2016, so please check back in.

**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.**


2016 DONATIONS:
Hats:   +38(Look we've past last years mark)
Scarves:  +174 (We've past last years mark)
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 15
Slippers:   14 (getting close to last years number)
Rain Poncho's:   +106 (We past last years mark)
Cotton Washcloths:  230
Afghans:  1 (wow folks, we're almost even with last year, so let's see how far beyond it we can go)
Socks:   82
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands:  +2  YIPPEE, we've past last years mark!
Shawls and shrugs, ponchos, sweaters & vests etc +2
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?
