Personal Care Items Always Help the Homeless

My latest trips collection of personal care items, and coffee.  The coffee is always donated to Rae, our friend who prepares meals for Homeless on Saturday mornings.  The condo's we stay in always leaves a few for quests, but we always take our own coffee so I'm able to pass these along to Rae.  Collecting shampoo, conditioner, lotion and soap is so easy to do when you travel.  Sometimes hotels have other items like mouth wash, sewing kits, cotton balls and cotton swabs.  Please keep that in mind as the busy travel season is about to begin.  It won't be long before the kids are out of school, doesn't seem possible.  Seems every year the time passes more quickly.

I once again took traveling ghan with me and got another big chunk done, but forgot to get a picture.  So perhaps the next time I work on it, I'll get an updated picture to show you how it's growing.

Hope you're all enjoying the start to Spring (with some set backs though in some areas).  We've had some flowers blooming and the grass is greening up.  Always nice to see color after the blah's of winter.  But, don't be fooled, temps are still very uncomfortable for those living in the elements and the need for donations very much still exists.

So please, keep your yarn and needles busy.

Thank you for all you all do to help Ohio's Homeless in Need.

**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?
