Warm Crocheted Hats for the Homeless

Our first exciting donation of the year, 2018!  Super warm (double thickness) crocheted hats from our good friend Barbara F from New York.  Nice color selection, people the women will enjoy not only the comfort, but the style of these crocheted donated hats.  Barbara has added nicely made size tags to her donation.  The size tags aid the volunteers at the various homeless shelters.  Many thanks Barbara for your dedication to Bridge and Beyond, your truly appreciated.

Folks, we're going to try a new counting system for this year.  Please notice all the goal counters in the right sidebar, as well as the one centered above this post.  I will probably rotate the one centered above this post (just started with Afghan, as it's an A and the start of the alphabet.  Doing so, seems to help the spacing with our new formatted blog.  The numbers I've used for our goals for the coming year, are the averages of our last 5 years of donations.....you'll see that number when you look at the chart by clicking on the stats link below.

If you've not had a chance, please read the posts about our Stats, as well as the post about how we can help the homeless and others in need.  There really are many ways of helping, when perhaps you're too busy to knit or crochet; as well as ways of helping if you're not a knitter or crocheter.

Also, don't miss our impressive list of whom to thank!

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?
