We here at Land of Gazillion Adoptees would like to congratulate all of the members of St. Olaf College’s Korean Culture Association (KCA), whom we featured earlier today, for winning the college’s Caf Fast. In particular, we send massive kudos to Clara and Gillian, Co-Vice Presidents of KCA, for sealing the deal.
So, what does all of this mean? On Thursday, December 8th, St. Olaf students can, according to KCA President Ellie Martin, “skip a meal in the cafeteria.” The “monetary value of the cafeteria food is then forwarded to” the Korean Unwed Mothers Families’ Association’s (KUMFA) HEATER facility. How high could the monetary value be? Well, there are over 3,000 students. From each donated meal, KUMFA will receive $2.50. You do the math, dear reader.
Thank you, KCA. I, for one, am inspired by your efforts.
P.S. A note to adoption agencies: We here at LGA know that many of you are struggling with your fundraising efforts. Perhaps you should look to folks like Ellie, Clara, and Gillian for guidance because they’re showing you how it’s done.
