2010 Korea Christmas Gift Team

Volunteers needed for this special team

All year long, children await the arrival of Christmas. It’s a time of magic. A time of joy, celebrated in the cozy embrace of family. At Holt’s Ilsan Center in Korea, the children celebrate Christmas with a very special family – a family of Holt volunteers.

This year, join Holt’s annual Christmas Gift Team as they share in hugs and prayers with the Ilsan residents. Enjoy homemade gifts, as well as songs and skits performed by the children. You’ll experience the culture, taste the cuisine, and marvel at the extraordinary beauty of Korea. But most of all, you’ll help create a magical, joyous Christmas for a special group of children!

“People tried to get my attention, to smile at me, hug me, sometimes even to kiss me on the cheek,” wrote Debbie Dunham, a 2008 team member and Holt adoptive mom, for the Winter 2009 Holt International magazine. “I, who had helped supply the simple gifts distributed earlier, had just received the greatest gift – the gift of pure Christmas joy.”

Share in the joy and spirit of Christmas! Also, explore Holt’s history and see Holt’s vision in action – through parties at Ilsan and the Jeonju Baby Home, as well as a visit to the Holt Suwon Gounddeul unwed mothers’ shelter, and a lunch to honor foster mothers.
