Homeless, Hungry, and Hats

We've chatted a lot about being homeless since the first of the year, and shared pictures of the face of homelessness.  Some, depending on where you are you see more than others.  Another picture, sad picture of a person sleeping on the cold cement.  This gentleman has a piece of cardboard and blanket, that's not much.  How does one sleep?  I find it often difficult to sleep through the night in a warm comfortable bed, can't imagine sleeping on the cold, hard cement with perhaps city noises all around you.  I've posted quite a few pictures of that in recent weeks.  Still, each picture sadness me.

Cold, and hungry and homeless.  We do what we can by knitting, crocheting, and looming hats.  There's a hat tab across the top of the blog with information regarding sizes, colors, and fibers.  Please take a look and consider making a hat or two to help Bridge and Beyond help the homeless.  A hat can make a person feel so much warmer.  A hat can keep the cold wind out of your ears and perhaps keep you from getting an ear ache.

If you've knitted or crocheted hats for us before, could I challenge you to make at least one more this calendar year?  Please and thanks.  We didn't make our goal last year and would like to push a bit to see what we can accomplish this year.  Please tell a friend that might help you make a hat or 2. 

Thank you for visiting, and reading this blog.  Hope to see you again.

**The counts on our progress bars are current, the percentages not quite. I'll not be figure the percentages with each update of numbers, but will be updating again next at least by the 20th. I have in fact made a reminder not on my cell phone for the 20th of each month to do percentages. If we're at a milestone, or I just have extra time I may do it more often...but certainly at that scheduled time.

** 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.


  1. It is sad that people have to be homeless and hungry. I do hope to see the totals grow this year. I agree, if each person could just make one extra item, that sure would help.

  2. I think I’m adding one more crocheter to our group in The Forest this year! I sent her the blog link and she’s interested!

  3. Thank you Sue and Cynthia for your supportive comments. I really appreciate them. So agree Sue about it being sad, and if everyone could make just one more of something. Great news Cynthia about an additional crocheter. Spreading the word is so helpful.


PLEASE leave your name and url, NOT a profile link, not a google or google plus. Only name and url will take me directly to your blog to return the favor of a comment.

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?
