Every 3 hours, a baby in Minnesota goes home with a free bundle of 25 items produced by Bundles Of Love. Without this bundle, the baby would have nothing - no clothing, no bedding, no diaper bag. The parents frequently are unable to provide these basic needs and our volunteers have come forward to help.
Bundles of Love Charity is an all-volunteer non-profit organization, incorporated in the state of Minnesota to help infants and their families. Our 501(c)3 status allows us to give tax deductible receipts for all donations. Starting with a group of 5 in 1999, we now have hundreds of active volunteers and continue to grow and help a larger number of families each year.
We help in the following ways:
- We provide clothing, bedding and necessities for infants in need;
- We provide correctly sized clothing for premature infants of all sizes;
- We provide burial garments and keepsakes for families who have suffered the loss of an infant due to stillbirth, complications of birth, or illness.
Volunteer groups meet regularly throughout the Twin Cities and in southeastern Minnesota to sew, knit and crochet essential clothing and blankets for these infants.

We regularly help over 60 clinics, agencies, and hospitals. In 2011, by delivering 3,115 bundles and over 106,000 baby items, we helped approximately 6,100 families. Volunteers donated almost 107,000 hours at 445 events and at home! Since Bundles Of Love was founded, we have delivered over 20,000 bundles.
Bundles of Love Charity relies on the generosity of volunteers, donors, and communities to help Minnesota babies. In this challenging economic time, we need your help more than ever. Please visit our How you can Help page and offer your support today. Thank you!
