Knitted Hats and Mittens for the Homeless

Thank you, thank you Sandra R for this fabulous donation of knitted goodies.  If you've been a frequent visitor here on Bridge and Beyond, you know Sandra is a long time supporter.  She knits in sunny Florida and sends her bounty here to cold Ohio...and she packs some sunshine in the box to put a smile on my face.

Sandra is very generous and we're always so appreciative of her donations.  Mittens in many different colors and sizes nicely labeled with size will truly thrill those who receive them.  Hats galore, also in many colors, sizes and styles to help warm someone in need.

Many many thanks Sandra, as always, please keep up the good work.

2016 Donations:
HATS: 497-16=481

MITTENS: 107-12=95
SLIPPERS: 60
RAIN PONCHOS: 206
COTTON WASHCLOTHS: 236

**We started the year with the number of items we had donated last year, 2016; and will subtract our donations from that.  Using the end number for 2016 as the goal for the each item.  So, as the year continues you will see numbers decrease.  Our goal is to meet and surpass the number of items donated last year.**

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.

Donations Help Ohio's Homeless

No....flowers aren't blooming here in Central Ohio.  This picture of daisies is one I took several years ago in my back yard.  It's so cold and gray here I thought we could use a lift by looking at flowers.  AND I'm sorry to say, I don't have a picture of the wonderful donation from our friend Dee Ann H.  I don't know what happened when I loaded the disc into the computer to do the edits, but the picture of her thoughtful donation was missing.

She donated 9 hats, 1 scarf plus a 1 gator (which I combined for 2 in the scarf category), and a pair of mittens.  AND you all know how excited I get when we get donations of mittens.

Many many thanks Dee Ann, and please keep up the good work and know how appreciated your items are.

The Power of Friendship

Look what a group of friends can accomplish.  This donation is a collective effort from 5 friends: Nikki S, Linda S, Jason D, Christina D, and Laurin A.  How cool is that.  We have a wonderful collection of personal care items, toothpaste, toothbrushes, rain poncho's, combs, and soap AND some beautiful scarves both knitted and crocheted.  Nikki orchestrated this wonderful donation for the benefit of Bridge and Beyond and hand delivered it to my house.  Let's give this group of friends special kudos for using their friendship to do for others.  I LOVE this.  It once again shows the power of one, the power of spreading the word and what together people can accomplish.

Thank you all for your thoughtfulness, and your giving spirit.  What a special group of friends you are.  Please keep up the good work.  YOU ALL ROCK!

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?
