Together with anonymous donors, Hanul Family Alliance (known as Korean-American Senior Center) is currently planning Ellie’s Fund Project, a project that – with our love for giving never—ending encouragement and admiration—will give strength and encouragement to young children that are in the midst of fighting with diseases as well as help to raise healthier children that have been placed in difficult economic circumstances. The Ellies’ Project will help make children smile.

“Making Children Smile”

 To give strength and encouragement to children that have been fighting with incurable diseases for long periods of time
 To provide the precious gift of word that “children with dreams overcome diseases too” with hope, strength and joy
 To inspire interest in children that have become exhausted over fighting with disease for such long periods of time
 To establish a culture of community spirit and mutual contribution within Korean and Asian-American community
 To help children, families, and friends’ feelings of hope and optimism replace fear and stress

Who is eligible?
 Korean and other Asian-American kids and children between ages 3 and 18
 Children with life-threatening medical conditions
 Medically fragile children with complex medical needs who are not yet able to go home
 Medical Criteria: A child diagnosed with Cancer, Encephaloma, Congenital heart disease, Leukemia, Amyotmphie, Muscular dystrophy or other life-threatening medical conditions.

What’s your Dream?
When the project team first visits with a child, we ask the simple question “What is your Dream?” Most requests fall into four major categories:
 David wishes to “go” to Children’s Museum with his parents. (e.g. Disneyland, Korea, major sporting event or concert)
 Joan dreams to “do” deep sea fishing and family picnic. (e.g. paragliding, birthday party)
 Sophia hopes to “meet” Victor Kim, a member of Quest Crew from “Best Dance Crew”. (e.g. favorite athlete, artist, movie start)
 Mark wants to “have” a notebook for his special graduation gift. (e.g. pet, violin, picture album)

Dreams come true (How we can help a child?)
 Download and send Application Form to HFAHFA staff conduct phone interview  HFA volunteers visit children
 HFA recruits volunteers, talent donors, other community members
 Media outreach: HFA’s E-newsletter, Radio, TV, newspaper, Facebook.

How can I refer a child?
 Please refer a child to Ellie’s Project team of Hanul Family Alliance
 Possible referral service organizations
 Children’s Memorial, Lutheran General, Swedish Covenant, Chicago & Rush Medical Center
 Pu W. Kim, M.D. 847-635-7577/ 773-561-1554 & Sang Jo Han, M.D. 630-513-9160/ 847-690-0788

Ways to Help (Sustainability-Fundraising) “It’s better to give than just receive”
