New Helping Hands from Missouri Aid Ohio's Homeless.

Thank you Verlene, our newest pair of helping hands from the state of Missouri!  On the day when this photo was taken, we actually had sunlight coming through the windows....trust me, that's a rarity.  But, it does help you see the variety of colors she's used in her crocheted scarves.  My two favorites would be the 2 on the far left.  I like the purple one both in color and design.  And the mix of fall colors in the brownish-orange one is quite appropriate for this time of the year.

We thrilled to have you join us Verlene and look forward to seeing you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

Ohio's Homeless will be warmer with your donation of 5 scarves.  Many thanks, and please keep up the good work. 

We have 37 days in the year...if we try to make last years mark for scarves, we would need at least 5 scarves a day to be donated, plus 8 between tomorrow and the end of December.  WOW, don't think we're going to make that folks, but let's push a bit and see where we end up.

HATS:  252
SCARVES (Gators, Infinity Scarves)   198-5=193  
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.

PLEASE...Leave your name and URL of your blog, NOT Google+ Profile. I'm can't return the favor of a blog visit if you leave Google+ !!!

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?
