Hats, scarves, Personal Care and Great Team Work

 WOW!  16 awesome knitted cotton washcloths. These knitted cloths are made with the very popular corner to corner, Grandma's favorite type pattern.  You just can't go wrong with this tried and true long standing favorite pattern.  LOVE the colors.  Cotton Cloths are used is several ways.  They're awesome for folks living in the elements because they're so much nicer on your skin than a regular washcloth.  They're used in welcome home packs when family's transition from shelter living to a home situation and can be used as wash cloths or dish cloths.  These are always so well received.
 Scarves and toothbrushes! The toothbrushes are used again in family welcome packs, as well as by those living in the elements.  Scarves....used all year long by those in the elements and even in shelters which sometimes aren't all that warm.  LOVE the blue green......just happens to be one of my favorite color combinations.  
Hats and personal care items (soap).  The hats are a variety of sizes which is always helpful, as heads are a variety of sizes!  And soap, used like the cotton cloths and toothbrushes.........in all situations.

This wonderful donation is a team effort from our friends Nikki S and Christina D.  Great work ladies.  So cool to team up for a good cause.

Speaking of a good cause, our friend Nikki S just recently completed a 50 mile Pelotonia, raising funds for Cancer, the hideous disease that affects so many people.  This isn't her first time doing the Pelotonia...remarkable and kudos to you Nikki.  Love your spirit of charity.

**These donations were awhile ago, right before I left town for vacation, and were suppose to post...there have been some issues with blogger; which...fingers crossed seem to be improving.  So...this post is delayed, but it did give me the chance to tell you about Nikki and bike ride!

** 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?
