I will be picking up a mat from Erika today, and Marie is just about finished. Martha Sommer has 2 complete and a 3rd one well on it's way to being completed. We should be able to deliver the 2nd - 10 mats within the week.
Patty Murray's Girl Scout Troop helped make plarn tonight and learned about the mats for the homeless. Thank you so much for your help.
Thank you to everyone that is saving bags, flattening bags, cutting bags, crocheting, spreading the word. It definetly takes everyone.
This project is gaining such momentum. We now have family in Ohio wanting to mail us plarn, new friends in Raleigh wanting to crochet and so many new friends jumping in to help whether through donating bags, creating plarn or crocheting. It is absolutely amazing. There is always room for more so please feel free to recruit for any part of the project.
I went with Haylah to drop off 9 mats to the Salvation Army. They were so very appreciative. There was one gentleman there stating his brother was homeless and how much he would like one. Haylah was blessed to be able to give a mat to him. It's touching to see the impact of this project. Salvation Army officials stated they had seen a few of these in the center. Please help us get the word out and if you have the ability to knit, crochet, or make plarn we would love the help.
