Crocheting for Bridge and Beyond Helps Homeless of ALL Ages

Thank you Jeannette T for this thoughtful donation of crocheted goodies to aid the homeless in Ohio.  Bridge and Beyond is able to help people in need because of good people like yourself.  Jeannette has included cotton washcloths and scarves, sized for the kiddo's...possible teen with the brown one.  Thank you Jeannette, and please keep up the good work.

AND...look, she's included one of the hand puppets.  I posted about this with some links to patterns, HERE.  While we perhaps don't need hundreds of these, having some for kids that are having a hard time adjusting to being in a shelter sounds like a wonderful idea.  Sandie P, another of our helpers here on Bridge and Beyond made the suggestion that they could also be made with cotton to be used as a washcloth for young kids........another good idea.

Here's a link from RAV, with a crocheted pattern, looks to be the same as Jeannette's.  It's a free pattern folks, so take a look.  And here's the knitted version.

**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.

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?
