2018 KUMFA Holiday Gift Drive


UPDATE: We are still waiting for donations to be posted, but sponsors have been found for all 131 of our children this year. Thank you to everyone who participated by either sponsoring a child or sharing our gift drive this year!

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 the children of single moms, 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 – This year we are aiming to find sponsors for 131 children! (some of the children are listed under their mom’s special nickname for them)


HOW TO SPONSOR A KUMFA FAMILY:

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

2. Second, send an email to shannon.heit@gmail.com 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.

3. Third, send your donation:

In the past, we have offered sponsors 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 sponsors send their donations and we will take care of the ordering for you. Most gifts are worth 50,000 KRW (about $50 USD). Thus, we ask that you send the equivalent of US$50.  When sending by Paypal, please send gifted friends and family so that we can avoid paying unncessary fees. Also please include a note saying which family the transfer is for.

Christmas Drive PAYPAL addresskumfa.volunteer@gmail.com

OR if you are in Korea, you may also transfer the 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!

80) “Neo J” (10 years old) – My son’s shoes have always been hand-me-downs from the neighbors or used ones we bought at flea markets. He asked if I could buy him some shiny new sneakers and I told him I would pray for them. I hope his wish comes true.

2017 KUMFA Holiday Gift Drive

Final Update for 2017 KUMFA Holiday Gift Drive:

Sponsors have now been found for all 110 of our KUMFA kids this year! If you are still interested in including KUMFA in your holiday giving this year, donations to the Holiday party for KUMFA families are also greatly appreciated! Thank you again to our amazing supporters for helping create a little bit of extra special holiday cheer for a young child this year!

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 the children of single moms, 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 – This year we are aiming to find sponsors for 105 children! (some of the children are listed under their mom’s special nickname for them)

HOW TO SPONSOR A KUMFA FAMILY:

1. First, decide which child’s present you would like to sponsor. Most of the names have a hyperlink with a link to the gift the child has requested (we are still waiting on some of the links).

2. Second, send an email to shannon.heit@gmail.com 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.

3. Third, send your donation:

In the past, we have offered sponsors 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 sponsors send their donations and we will take care of the ordering for you. Most gifts are worth 30,000 KRW (about $30 USD). Thus, we ask that you send the equivalent of US$30 to the KUMFA Paypal address (Please send gifted friends and family so that we can avoid losing the Paypal fees), which is

kumfa.volunteer@gmail.com with a note saying which family the transfer 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

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!

2016 KUMFA Holiday Gift Drive

santa-elves

UPDATE (12/6/2016) : Although we are still waiting for a few sponsors to send in their pledged donations, I believe we have found sponsors for all 105 of the kids on our 2016 KUMFA Holiday Gift Drive wishlist. Thank you to all of those you helped translate, helped spread the word, and helped sponsor gifts. Every year I am reminded of the generosity of the human spirit and the joy of the holiday season through the continued support that I see for this holiday gift drive and the enthusiastic support of KUMFA. Thank you for helping make a child’s season a little brighter this year. Warmest wishes to you and your family this holiday season from KUMFA!

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 the children of single moms, 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 – This year we are aiming to find sponsors for 105 children! (some of the children are listed under their mom’s special nickname for them)

HOW TO SPONSOR A KUMFA FAMILY:

1. First, decide which child’s present you would like to sponsor. Most of the names have a hyperlink with a link to the gift the child has requested (we are still waiting on some of the links).

2. Second, send an email to shannon.heit@gmail.com 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.

3. Third, send your donation:

In the past, we have offered sponsors 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 sponsors send their donations and we will take care of the ordering for you. Most gifts are worth 30,000 KRW (about $30 USD). Thus, we ask that you send the equivalent of US$30 to the KUMFA Paypal address, which is kumfa.volunteer@gmail.com with a note saying which family the transfer 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

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!

2015 KUMFA Holiday Gift Drive

santa-claus

UPDATE: We are still waiting for all the donations to come in, but we have found sponsors who have committed to sponsoring ALL 97 children on our 2015 KUMFA Holiday Gift Drive wishlist. Thank you to all of our sponsors and those who helped spread the word. Without fail, this gift drive and the generosity of those who participate always puts me in the holiday spirit! Warmest wishes to all of our KUMFA supporters and your families this holiday season 🙂

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 the children of single moms, 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 88 families, but will be updated with 13 more for a total of 100 families).

HOW TO SPONSOR A KUMFA FAMILY:

1. First, decide which child’s present you would like to sponsor. Most of the names have a hyperlink with a link to the gift the child has requested (we are still waiting on some of the links).

2. Second, send an email to shannon.heit@gmail.com 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.

3. Third, send your donation:

In the past, we have offered sponsors 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 sponsors send their donations and we will take care of the ordering for you. Most gifts are worth 30,000 KRW (about $30 USD). Thus, we ask that you send the equivalent of US$30 to the KUMFA Paypal address, which is kumfa.volunteer@gmail.com with a note saying which family the transfer 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

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
