Helping Homeless in Ohio

A soft fluffy child's blanket/ghan crocheted and donated by Carol W.  I've laid this aside to donate in a different manner, as we don't normally have small children/toddlers in need at the shelters we support. It will be donated to Rae, our friend who feeds homeless folks on Sat mornings, as she has contacts where a pastel toddlers ghan would be more appropriate.

Carol is our newest pair of helping hands, and we hope to see you here again on Bridge and Beyond.  Welcome to the group.

Weather has been odd around the country with certain areas having extreme conditions.  We are temporarily warmer then normal, but...don't be fooled by that folks.  We're expecting winter conditions again in just a few days, so please keep your yarn, hooks, and needles busy.

Thank you

**We started the year with the number of items we had donated last year, 2016; and will subtract our donations from that.  Using the end number for 2016 as the goal for the each item.  So, as the year continues you will see numbers decrease.  Our goal is to meet and surpass the number of items donated last year.**

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?
