Thank you Mary D for Helping the Homeless



 Mary D, our newest pair of helping hands has been very busy creating hats and scarves for the younger set.  The kids will be thrilled to get these soft scarves.  So happy to have you with us Mary, helping Ohio's Homeless in Need.  So many people without roofs over their heads,
 or living day to day, hoping for nights in shelters here and there.  Children are still expected to go to school.  Has to be hard, not knowing where you'll be for the night or when you'll have a meal next.  
 One of the things Homeless Family's Foundation does is transport children to and from school, making sure they have a meal on return to the facility from school, and they provide homework assistance for the kids to help them through these difficult times, while they work with the adults to find lodging and jobs.

These hats and scarves will help them know, someone cares!  These hats and scarves will help them stay warmer, and healthier.  Many thanks Mary D, please keep up the good work.

AND look what a wonderful dent her donation has made in our goals for hats and scarves.  205 hats needed to reach last years donation mark.  AND167 hats to meet last years mark.  Will we make it?  28 days left to the end of the year.  Let's see how close we can get.

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?
