Started by Maddie & Morgan Manning, the Bundle Up Club is a non-profit organization on a mission to make a difference in the world by providing hand-made blankets, hats, scarves, and other goods to those in need.
Maddie & Morgan want people to know they’re valuable; they want them to feel loved. They want the homeless, the needy, the less-fortunate, the forgotten to know they are worth the investment of their time and effort and work and thoughts and prayers.
It's a cold world outside - let's blanket them in His love.
Matthew 25:36
Thank you for your help and support!

Current Numbers and Exciting News!!

We're just 12 days away from the deadline for our current project (October 1) and only 23 days away from our departure date! Time has flown! We are excited to tell you our current numbers:

100 blankets
(Thanks to your generous donations we were able to purchase the fleece needed to make the 9 more blankets we needed to reach our goal. Thank You!!)
93 hats
100 scarves
6 tote bags
3 ear muffs/headbands
1 shawl
1 baby cocoon
1 facial warmer/beard
These numbers only include what we have here. We are expecting a shipment of hats and scarves from a friend in Virginia next week that will add to these numbers. We also have local friends who are continuing to make items, and we are still making items until October 1. So, we know for sure that by our deadline we will have met and/or exceeded our goal of 100 of each item. Woo Hoo!!!
We are so grateful for your generosity and support over the last few months. Because of you, we have been able to achieve our goals, and we have done it in record time (less than 5 months)!
As you know, our current project is focused on helping the homeless/blanket ministry of Kris Bridgman in Bowling Green, Kentucky. We will travel there October 12th to deliver and help distribute the items made/donated, and we are so excited!! We will assemble gift bags to give to those we meet there, each of which will include a hat, scarf, and blanket. Our awesome friend, Monique Zimmer, made gift tags for us to put on the bags.                                                                                   

While there, we will be interviewed by Christian Family Radio and will get to share our story which will hopefully inspire others.  Additionally, we will be sharing our story with their local newspaper. We'll be sure to take lots of pictures and keep you informed of everything we get to be a part of there, and when we reach our deadline, we will give you our final totals.
With this project quickly coming to a close, we have been praying and thinking about the future and looking for an opportunity in our own community. We don't want to give it away just yet because we are still in the very early stages of planning, but we will give you a hint: if you love babies (who doesn't?!) you're going to love this one and want to get involved!!
We just want to say thank you again to all of you who have donated and prayed and made items and followed our story. We are so grateful that we have the opportunity to help others, and we want to do more! God has blessed us so much and we want to share His light and hope with others. It doesn't matter who you are or where you are, God will use you if you're willing. We didn't know where to go or what to do or how to get started when Maddie first shared her idea, but God has helped us through every step of the process and has opened doors for us and given us opportunities we never could have dreamed of. We are excited about the future of the Bundle Up Club and can't what to see what miracles God will do!

Six More Weeks!

Hello friends and fellow Bundle Up-ers!

We have been making progress and are hopeful we will reach our goal of 100 hats, 100 scarves, and 100 blankets. At last count, we were well on our way with 71 hats, 65 scarves, and 83 blankets. We have been adding to the stash almost daily, and are excited to find out what our final totals will be!

In just six short weeks will make the trip to Kentucky to meet our friend Kris and help her distribute our goods to the homeless there. We are so excited to have this opportunity! Because time is running out, we have set a deadline of October 1st for all scarf, hat, blanket, and monetary donations to be received. This will give us time to sort and organize, as well as to determine our travel needs.

So, if you are currently making an item to donate or plan on making a monetary contribution to help us with travel expenses, please plan to have those to us by October 1st so that we can make all the necessary arrangements for the trip.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at or visit our Bundle Up Club page on Facebook and message us there. Also, if you would like to make a donation to help us with travel expenses, please visit our gofundme page at

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped us. We appreciate your prayers, donations, well-wishes, and support. We are so grateful to have this opportunity, and are excited to see where God leads as we continue to help others Bundle Up!
