UPDATE: PLEASE PARTICIPATE IN OUR 2015 HOLIDAY GIFT DRIVE, CLICK HERE

UPDATE: I am happy to announce that we have found Santas for 114 KUMFA kids this year! We are no longer in need of sponsors for presents, but if you would like to donate to KUMFA’s holiday party for the moms and kids (to be held this Saturday) OR just to KUMFA’s general operational costs (there are three moms who work full-time in the office for a very, very small salary), please feel free to donate via Paypal (the Paypal email is kumfa.volunteer@gmail.com) or bank transfer Kookmin Bank 국민은행 547801-04-053780 한국미혼모가족협회. Thanks again everyone for all of your amazing support!!

KUMFA (Korean Unwed Mothers’ Families Association) is once again organizing a Christmas gift drive for the children of Korean unwed mothers. KUMFA (Korean Unwed Mothers and Families’ Association) advocates for the rights of unwed pregnant women, unwed mothers and their children in Korea. For more info on KUMFA, please visit the KUMFA FB page. 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!  In order to get all the gifts ordered and delivered before Santa arrives, we need to find donors by December 15th!! 

Read on to see the wish list written by moms from KUMFA (the list currently has only 87 families, but will be updated with 13 more for a total of 100 families).

HOW TO SPONSOR A KUMFA FAMILY:

1. First, decide which family you would like to sponsor.

2. Second, send an email to shannon.heit@gmail.com  saying which family (the name and number) you would like to buy a gift for. This is important in order to ensure 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 (in most cases, if you click on the mom & child’s name, you can see a link to a website where you can purchase the wishlist gift 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 kumfa.volunteer@gmail.com 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!

Thank you!

My daughter is a fan of the movie Frozen, but she is very tall for a 4th grader, so everyone thinks she is a teenager who is too old to dress up like a cartoon character.

44) Hyeyoung and Yubi

Hello, I am Yubi’s mother who is living happily day-by-day with Yubi. Yubi is still very shy with strangers so I can’t send her to a nursery school yet so I must be with her all the time, which also may be why she is so shy. We spend most of our time listening to children’s songs. I love music and Yubi does as well. When we have songs on, she moves in a way that can’t exactly be called dancing and she doesn’t seem to be much of a dancer but she bounces to the beat as well as she can. Whenever we go to kid’s cafes she loves playing with the piano or other instruments. I always want to buy her one but because of our tight budget, every time I tell myself next time, next time. We would love if Santa Claus could bring her a present of a guitar.

Wishlist gift: Little Tikes Baby Guitar

45) Mira and Yejun (3 years old)

While we were still dating, a sudden accident took my baby’s father away. It was then that I learned I was pregnant. Despite my family’s opposition, the disapproving looks of others, and economic hardships, I tried my hardest to protect my child who seemed like a gift. I’ve persevered looking after and protecting my baby. He has grown so much. By the 22th, he will be three years old. He has had a hard time being separated from me so we started play therapy this month. We are trying not to hurry him but enable him to go out to the world one step at a time. Yejun has liked cars and robots ever since he was a year old. These days he has started to show interest in airplanes and helicopters so we would like to ask for a airplane shaped toy for Christmas. I used to love to read and watch movies but because of having a sensitive child who can’t leave his mother’s side a single minute, I haven’t been able to read a book or watch movie since giving birth. Becoming a mother certainly isn’t easy. ‘Mother’ is a title that can only be gained after giving up ‘I’. I try to live my best for my son who calls me ‘mother’ every day and turned me from a weak woman to the strongest greatest ‘mother’. I truly thank everyone who has looked after and helped us mothers and children.

Wishlist gift: Two Super Wings Tranforming Robots (option -> 변신호기 1, 변신아리1)

I am a single mother raising a lovely little girl. After having a child and going to college at a later age than most, I took a few semesters off and am now living happily with my child. These days, Soyul seems to want a space of her own and keeps hiding between the laundry hangers. We spend the whole day playing hide-and-seek. We also love taking walks in the park but now that the weather is cold that will be hard to do. If we could get a tent for Christmas, we could spend the day in a warm tent instead of the cold park, each sipping a glass of warm milk.

Wishlist gift: Child’s Indian Tent

47) Soonhee and Jia (6 years old) 

Hello, we are two peas-in-a-pod mother and daughter duo. Our hobbies are watching movies and playing games at the arcade. My daughter Jia loves car racing games.

Because of that we live with the confidence that we can do anything! Wishlist gift: Roraailey Basic Ski Gloves (option -> pink)

My son, Ji-Hun, likes LEGO blocks a lot.  I should spend more time with him, but because I’m very tired from work, it’s hard to find the time to play with him as much as I want.

54) Youngsuk and Sue (6 years old)

My child loves to exercise and move her body. We sometimes go to a nearby transportation park and ride bikes. Even though she is only six, she has already mastered a two-wheeled bicycle. She can also double-jump the jumprope. But her favorite thing to do is playing with blocks. She forgets all about time when playing with blocks and I love watching her concentrate while making this and that, so we decided to ask for blocks this Christmas and I hope this will be a chance for her to get a good present.

The cute baby of the family loves to sing and dance and hopes to become a mailwoman.

Wishlist gift: New Micro Super Big Cash Register(option -> 마이크로슈퍼빅계산대)

56) Mangjeon & Miryu (3years old)

I am a mom of  13-year-old girl and 3-year-old girl. We enjoy ballet shows, music recitals and musicals a lot.  The elder one is acting like the elder, so calm and gentle. The younger one is so jealous of her sister, typical characteristics of the second child. But they get along very well even with a 10 year gap in their age, they watch animated movie together, play piano together, and have fun together. Sometimes it is more difficult having two children to take care of than only one child, but they are just so lovely together. It will be great if we could receive an Elsa doll for this coming Christmas, which they recently fell in love with.

Wishlist gift: Huggies Magic Panties (option -> 15년형 5남 (특대31P) x 2팩) 

60) Yeonkyeong and Eunwoo

I am a single mother living in Daegu. What our family likes is to not sit still at home. That’s because our house is so cold and the heating bill is too high. So before Eunwoo went to nursery school, we would go to Costco or the nearby supermarket. Recently, I’ve found there is such a thing called an insulation tent, so we would like to ask for this for Christmas. Thank you so much. At first, it was hard because Eunwoo refused to be separated from me for over three months and I had to keep holding her which led to hurting my wrist. Nowadays, he has adjusted to nursery school and I have found some time to spend by myself. With this, I am busy thinking of the future—what I can do for Eunwoo, our livelihood, and things I need to in the future. So both mother and son are leading busy lives.

Aenok loves playing with blocks. She is a daughter who is extremely active and has a lot of charm. I love beautifully decorating our new home that Aenok and I moved into with Hello Kitty items. Up until now, I rarely bought clothes for my daughter and mostly dressed her in hand-me-downs. I would like to ask for a Hello Kitty outfit, because I want to dress Aenok in beautiful clothes when she goes to kindergarten next year.

On Sundays, we enjoy watching plays and taking walks together. We love drinking tea and talking. Yisak is just like me as a child;  Yisak often sleeps late in the mornings and loves running. My child has a lot of dreams for the future and spent first grade talking about wanting to be a ballerina, doctor, tae-kwon-do athlete, painter, and pianist. I want to provide love and support and live side by side with my child so that Isaac can continue to dream and realize those dreams in the future.

65) Eunju & Junwoo

I would like to introduce my family. First, there is Junwoo, a delicate detailed son who is a wonderful boy who cares a lot for his mother. His mother is a single lady who enjoys life with a wide smile on her face because I gave birth to my son at an older age. Not one or two years ago, I was overwhelmed and in poor condition due to parenting, life, and the weight of living. Even though the situation has not necessarily improved, I have shaken off the heavy weight and am living for tomorrow with only the thought of happily spending time with my son. I would like to give my wonderful son a present that he desires.

70) Bupgyeong & Saebyeok

I am Haneul’s mom and I am raising my child who is developmentally delayed in Daegu. My little one loves drawing. Although right now the drawings are scribbles, Haneul can draw circles, albeit a bit poorly. ^^ Haneul enjoys drawing all over the place using colored pencils. A difficult point is that we go through many sketchbooks because Haneul does not draw on a page if there is even a tiny mark. That is why I chose a magnetic dry erase board as our wishlist gift. Thank you very much. ^^

Wishlist gift: White board, blackboard / magnetic board (option large, white frame, pink board대형-화이트-핑크보드판) 

 71) Soyun & Tae-in

I live with my parents and am raising my son. My child loves cars and enjoys visiting various places and traveling. When Tae-in is at home, he enjoys sticking close to mom, and he likes playing physical jokes. Because he speaks fairly well, he loves telling various stories that he has come up with and makes his mom laugh often. At times, I can even catch a glimpse of a certain gentle sensibility within him. He is small for his age and possesses a sense of cuteness that is warm and delicate. Sometimes, I like to watch a movie to lift my spirits and enjoy walking or taking hikes in parks or on mountains. I always hope and pray that together my child and I can grow and live with a positive attitude.

I am raising and living with my 9 year old son who loves drawing. Perhaps because he doesn’t have any younger siblings, he loves puppy dolls. He also loves building things, but, I think his preferences keep changing as he gets older. Still, I would like to gift him his most favorite thing, Legos.

We are the energizer family!!! On the 9th of December, it will be 3 years since Jiwoo was born and first met me!!! There are many great things that have happened, but lately I have been feeling that Jiwoo has grown up so well by the way he talks to me.

85) Huiseong & Yuna (7 years old)

Yuna is a 7 year old girl who has become obsessed with ballet recently and says that she wants to become a ballerina. Because Yuna is growing up to be such bright girl despite not getting enough motherly love from me, I am always grateful and apologetic to her so I continuously pledge to love her more. We love traveling. And, through KUMFA we were able to take a trip to mudflats and Jeju Island as well. We are grateful for being given the opportunity to create such precious memories. Yuna is a girly girl and loves princess themed stuff. But, she has never had a princess dress and so I would like to ask for one.
