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.

Mama T's Project Update & Some BIG News!!

We've been busy, busy, busy getting everything taken care of as we close out this year's project to benefit Mama T's - a new homeless shelter opening in our community. We have lots to report! First of all, the blanket party we had on September 24th was a big success, and even though we didn't have the turn out we'd hoped for, we still got a lot accomplished. BIG thanks to everyone who came out and helped us make blankets for the shelter! Also, thank you to those who volunteered to take blankets home to make. Here are some pictures from the party:

A couple of weeks ago, we were notified that we are the recipients of a $1,000 grant! WooHoo!

We will be using this money to help purchase materials for our Mama T's project, as well as to fund next year's which will be for the elderly of our community.

And now for our biggest news of all! Drum roll please...

We met with Dania from Mama T's this week and showed her some of the items we have made/collected for the shelter. As there is a lack of clean, bug-free storage for the items, we have agreed to continue to store them until January, which is when they expect to open. The blankets we made will be used on the beds at the facility! We are so excited to be able to meet this need.

Our original plan was to donate 100 hats, blankets, scarves, pairs of gloves, and pairs of socks to Mama T's, and guess what? We did it!!!! But there's more we can do. In our meeting with Dania, she let us know that they have a need for baby/children's blankets and other items and asked if we would be willing to help more. Of course, we said YES! In addition to what we already have, we would like to make at least 50 baby/children's blankets. We'd also like to donate children's hats, gloves, and socks. That's where YOU come in!

When we receive our grant money, we will purchase fleece for 25 kids' blankets and other children's items to donate. We have already bought enough fleece to make 25 smaller blankets.


We need to have these blankets made and ready to donate in January. We would like to host another blanket party between now and then, but if you could help us before we can get that arranged, we would be forever grateful! We have a lot of work to do and a short time to do it in, but we couldn't say no to the precious children in need in our community. Contact us via email or our Facebook page if you'd like to help!
