Crocheted Goodies to Warm Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Emily K for this potpourri of crocheted goodies.  Take a look folks, she's been busy.  Emily has crocheted cotton wash clothes (please scroll back to my previous post about all the uses for these cotton wash clothes), crocheted hats, crocheted scarves, and crocheted mittens.

Listen........do you hear me?  You should.  You know, if you visited my blog before how excited I get when we get donations of mittens!  I give out a shout of glee, every single time.  Sometimes I dance in the streets too.  Perhaps you've seen me, lol.

Emily has also included a nice mix of personal care items.  Personal care items are used all year long folks, even when perhaps those in need might not need a hat.  They use personal care items when in the shelters, when living outdoors in the elements and they get a package of them to help start them stocking their permanent housing situation when they get their welcome home pack and transition out of shelter living. Personal care items can be toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, chap stick, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, shaving supplies, female supplies and more.  Personal Care items can be donated by those who don't knit or crochet.  You can save items from your travels from hotel rooms in order to make a donation.

Many thanks Emily, please keep up the good work.

**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?
