Hard Life, Hovel, Homeless, and more, So SAD

 On our worst days, we have no clue how hard life can be.  How hard life can be living on the streets, waiting out the day to get a night in a shelter.
Trying to just take a rest......leaning up against a tree.  

Blogging in Alphabetical Order, today is the letter H.
So many words that start with the letter H having to do with Homelessness:

  1. 1.
    a small, squalid, unpleasant, or simply constructed dwelling.
These pictures were taken in Southern California.  A hovel indeed.  Basically cardboard boxes and plywood put together.  These space was the home of 3 children (in their teens).  Near by was a mobile home where the parents lived.  The teens lived in this hovel for 4 years among feces, had no running water or electric.  The parents were arrested and the children then got care; but.....many across the country do live like this, in self made shelters; or abandoned buildings or pieces of buildings.  Horrible and sad.

So many H words, one is hunger, one is humiliation.  

We do the best we can do, we knit and we crochet and we loom.  We donate our time, to warm others physically.  We do our best to make a difference, to improve the existence of humanity.

We here on Bridge and Beyond do our best by giving what we can to the homeless.

**The counts on our progress bars are current. 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 so sad that the world has homeless people. And the hungery people. I just don't see an end to the problem. I will keep on knitting to help the homeless in OH stay warmer.

    1. I know Sue, I feel the same way you do. And thank you for all you do.


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?
