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!

Unexpected Blessings & Our OKC Delivery

We thought we were finished with our first project, in which our goal was to give away 100 gift bags to the homeless. We ended up with 104 gift bags, and were pleased we had exceeded our goal. We distributed 70 bags in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and kept the remaining 34 bags so we could give them to the Oklahoma City Metro House of Hope.

But even though our second mission, Project Baby Bundle, is in full swing, we still haven't completed our first mission, because guess what? We had an unexpected, large donation of fleece come in! We received enough to make 16 more blankets! And guess what else? Our church youth group has decided to get involved by helping us make the remaining blankets and distribute all the gift bags in OKC! We will be making that trip on November 15th.

Because we have extra hats and scarves also, we will be able to make 16 more gift bags, which will give us a total of 50 to give away to the OKC Metro House of Hope. This brings the grand total of our first project to 120 gift bags of all handmade blankets, hats, and scarves distributed to the homeless of Bowling Green, KY and Oklahoma City, OK!

We are so thankful for God's provision and help with this project and continue to be amazed by the great things happening with our little team!

Tomorrow night we will host our first Bundle Up training class. What started small has turned big! We have 15 confirmed attendees, and a possible 5 more who will be learning to use knitting looms and make blankets. We will be sending everyone home with supplies to help us with Project Baby Bundle!

We'll post pictures and updated numbers from our training party soon, so stay tuned!

Thanks so much to each of you for your support, encouragement, prayers, donations, and help. We couldn't do it without YOU!
