So Many Ways to Warm Those in Need Here on Bridge and Beyond

 Woot Woot, look at this awesome and very generous donation from our good friend and long time supporter Gail B.  She's apparently not been sleeping at night, either that or she crochets in her sleep!  Impressive Gail.  Beautiful warm soft scarves.  Some colors perfect for the men folk and the pretty purples and blends awesome for the ladies.  They're not little folks, I've just left them folded so I could get more in a picture.  Please click to enlarge so you can see how pretty.  17 scarves in this photo.
AND...don't go away, there's more.  Slippers, hats, and 2 more scarves in this photo!  I told you she hasn't been sleeping!

Notice the tags on the hats and slippers for size!  I'd like to remind everyone to please tag sizes for hats, slippers and mittens.  AND please attach mittens and slippers to the pair stays together.  Folks you don't need to be fancy with tags, Gail has hold punched notebook paper and tied the tag on the item with yarn.  Easy peasy.  You can certainly buy those little white tags, or use card stock etc, but you do not need to be fancy.  These look cute as she cut them on an angle to add a little flare.  Please avoid using safety pins, paper clips, and tape.  In some cases the pins have come opened and in other cases they've been hard to get out of the yarn.  Tape has also been a bit of an issue, when removed it makes a fuzzy spot sometimes.

Please keep up the good work Gail, and again many thanks for your long term support.  YOU ROCK!

**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?
