BundleUp - Please Help!

Hello readers,

If you don't know me (which would make sense since I haven't posted in forever) my name is Maura McDonagh and I am a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying biomedical engineering and communication arts. While on campus I've been doing some cool stuff.

UW student organization BundleUp is raising money to purchase winter clothing to create "bundles" to distribute to the homeless in Dane and Green counties. This winter, BundleUp is seeking to provide winter clothing to 400 homeless individuals, double the amount of people helped last year. With your donations, we can achieve this goal.

Often times, people wonder what they can do to help homeless individuals they see asking for help. All donations through BundleUp go towards collecting winter clothing such as gloves, hats, socks, coats, and blankets to help those whose only way to bundle up and stay warm is through these basic necessities.

We at BundleUp are proud of what we have accomplished in the last few months, from increasing campus donation sites, to rebranding to even having a spot on the UW student radio station, WSUM. But right now, we are in dire need of raising money to purchase bulk orders of smaller items (hats, scarves, gloves and socks) to complement the huge excess of large/bulk items we have collected to complete the bundles.

Please donate if you can, and share if you can't!

Thanks for reading <3
