Hats, Scarves and Cotton Cloths from Sunny Florida Help Ohio's Homeless


Thank you Cynthia B and Juli B for this thoughtful donation.  I love that the two of you from sunny Florida put your skills together to help those in need here on Bridge and Beyond.  I love team work!  We're thrilled to have you and your helping hands.

Extra thanks for adding sizing tags to your hats.  

Folks please click the picture to enlarge so you can see details and colors better.  The scarves also have size tags and are folded.  You may not see that they are scarves with them being so nicely folded......and in some cases paired with matching hats to make lovely gift sets.

They have also included 6 cotton washcloths in their donation for Ohio's Homeless.

We're chipping away at our goal folks.  With 16 days left in the calendar year (though remember I traditionally don't close the year until all donations received by the end of year get blogged about and sometimes that goes into a week or two in January), we would need about 10.6 hats per day and 8.6 scarves per day to hit our goal of donating the same number that we donated last year.  I don't know how close we'll get,  but....please keep checking in to see.

Many thanks Cynthia and Juli, we hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

**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.**

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?
