Donating Knitted Loomed Hats Warms Homeless

Thank you Maria Z for this thoughtful and generous donation of knitted hats.  Maria is our newest pair of helping hands.  Thrilled to have you join us Maria.

Pick a color folks!  Truly a wonderful mix of colors, something for everyone here.  Some colors appropriate for women, others for men, and plenty that work for either.  Very nice.  Loomed knitted hats with the extra thick brim are always a hit.  The thick brim really helps with added warmth.

Maria has really been busy and with her donation of 24 hats, and is really helping us with our goal.  Her donation brings us down to 252 hats needed by the end of the year to match last year's donation.  Can we do it?  I hope so, hats are so essential.

Thank you Maria, and welcome to the group.  Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

HATS:  276-24=252
SCARVES (Gators, Infinity Scarves)  211
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?
