2020 KUMFA Holiday Gift Drive

Santas found for all 195 children, thank you all for your continued support!!


We are once again organizing a Christmas gift drive for the children of KUMFA. 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 – This year we are aiming to find Santas for 195 children! (some of the children are listed under their mom’s special nickname for them)


1. First, decide which child’s present you would like to sponsor.

2. Second, send an email to [email protected] to tell us which family you have chosen to sponsor (please be sure to send the child’s name AND number). This is important in order to ensure that we don’t duplicate gifts. Donating for children who have not yet found Santas at the end of the drive is also fine!

3. Third, send your donation:

In the past, we have offered Santas the option of sending gifts directly. However, after some consideration, in order to protect the privacy of the moms and their children (because name, phone number and address are needed in order to send directly in Korea), we are requesting that Santas send monetary donations and we will take care of ordering your child’s gift for you. Donations to sponsor a child within Korean can be made by a bank transfer of 30,000 KRW or through Paypal (US$35 in order to cover the gift + paypal/transfer fees).  When sending by Paypal, please include a note saying which family the donation is for.

OR if you are in Korea, you may also transfer the money:

Shinhan Bank (신한은행) Account number: 110-403-352377 Name: HEIT SHANNON NELL (I am receiving donations so that I can check each donation has been received before sending in a lump sum to KUMFA, otherwise they will need to check the receipt of each donation and I don’t want to add that labor to their to-do list).

Please be sure to let me know by which method you are sending your donation. The wishlist post will be updated every day. The children that have already found a Santa will be checked off. Please also state if you are willing to sponsor another child if the child you have chosen has already found a Santa.

Thank you!
