Thirty shelters will receive slippers made by the wonderful members of The Pink Slipper Project.  Well, that is, 30 shelters so far this year!  Expect more!  We want to equal or break last year's record-breaking year, don't we?  If you say no, then Judy, Lynne and I can retire for the year and have a reunion on a beach in Florida for the winter!  No way!  I just know we will break the record of 39 shelters from last year.   Soooo, we need to get to 40.  With that in mind, I'm working to have one shelter challenge per week through Thanksgiving. That will give us 40.  If you have some slippers made ahead, it will help down the road when we're getting to the finish line.

Now back to statistics ........

So far this year we've done 30 shelters and sent 2,833 slippers and 2,588 washcloths, not to mention all of the pet blankets and crochet & knitting supplies that we have also sent to shelters with a pet program and a craft/hobby program.   Now, that is just plain fabulous!! The numbers will continue to grow in the next several weeks; then, we can kick back and rest on our laurels through the busy holiday season.  After the holidays, we can dust off our needles and hooks and get busy again. 

I saw three names I'm not familiar with who made a pledge for Bethany House. Thank you to Susie, Arlinda and Luanne for making your first pledge. We look forward to seeing your names again in the future.

I'll let you know more about the challenge for this week when I have all the info.
