In cooperation with TRACK, ASK and KoRoot, KUMFA (Korean Unwed Mothers’ Families Association) is once again organizing a Christmas gift drive for the children of Korean unwed mothers. By giving small, personal gifts to single moms’ children, we encourage the movement of child-rearing single mothers to grow in Korea. Of course, we also bring a little holiday cheer! Children will receive their gifts at an end-of-year party on December 28 in Seoul. Therefore, please select your gifts by December 18 in order to ensure that there is enough time to get all the gifts purchased, delivered, and wrapped.
How to participate?
1. First, go to the link and decide which family you would like to sponsor. http://www.adoptionjustice.com/2013-holiday-gift-drive-kumfa/
2. Second, send an email to email@example.com saying which family (the name and number) you would like to buy a gift for. This is important to do first so we make sure that we don’t duplicate gifts. Please be sure to include your METHOD of donation in your email (see below).
3. Third, you may donate a gift in one of two ways:
Method One. Directly purchase the gift and send it to the family’s home (addresses will be emailed individually). If you send it directly, you may choose to gift wrap, but it is not necessary. If you order it online (some gift requests contain links to websites you can purchase online), you can send it directly to the family’s home.
Method Two. Most gifts are worth about $30. You may send the equivalent of US$30 to the KUMFA Paypal address, which is firstname.lastname@example.org and request that we buy a certain gift on your behalf. Please also make a note saying which family the transfer is for.
If you are in Korea and don’t have Paypal, you may also transfer money:
Shinhan Bank (신한은행)
Account number: 110-403-352377
Name: HEIT SHANNON NELL
The website post will be updated every day. The gifts that have already found a sponsor will be checked off. Please help so that each child gets his/her Christmas wish!
