Loomed Hats Help Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Connor!  Connor W from Nevada is our newest pair of helping hands.  We're thrilled to have you helping us Connor with your loomed hats.  Love the nice dark colors, truly the best for Homeless.  Hats are probably the biggest thing that can make a difference in how warm someone is....or the lack of one and how cold.  Hats help to insult the whole body, help to keep a head dry from rain, sleet, snow etc.

While our daytime temperatures here in Ohio can still be quite comfortable, the nights have already become uncomfortable.  We've already nights registering barely 50.  50, when you're living in the elements can be very uncomfortable so our hats, scarves and more are already in need.

Please that we've been able to get a nice large donation down to the Homeless Family Foundation before true Fall hits.  Thank you all for all you do.

Help me Welcome Connor to Bridge and Beyond.  Please keep up the good work Connor.  We hope to see you here often!

2016 Donations:
HATS: 300-6=294
SCARVES (Gators, Infinity Scarves) 255
MITTENS: 58
SLIPPERS: 52
RAIN PONCHOS: 205
COTTON WASHCLOTHS: 28
AFGHANS: 32
SOCKS: 120 
Misc, Ponchos, shawls, headbands etc aren't counted but very much appreciated.

**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?
