FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
JooYoung Choi Artist/Korean Adoptee’s Gallery gives back to Korean
Single Mother Support Organization
Organization: Ae Ran Won
February 10, 2010; Boston, Massachusetts
From now till the end of this year, artist and Korean adoptee/birthchild
JooYoung Choi is using her paintings to generate awareness
and support for Korean single mothers and
their children at Ae Ran Won. From now till the end of 2010, 10% of
the profits from her online gallery, will go towards donating baby
clothes, vitamins and toys to the Single Mother Home in Korea.
“When I stayed in Korea this past Summer, I had the honor of meeting
nine young ladies who were being supported by this organization.
They are amazing people, some as young as 16 or 17,
out of the group, nine women offered photos of their
children to me, along with information about their son or daughter.
Also, they included their favorite and least favorite colors and their
wishes for their child’s future. Before I left Korea, I delivered a series of
baby portrait paintings, one for each of the nine women I had met.”
“I am a Korean Adoptee who was able to find her birth family, I know
that both of my birth parents struggled emotionally over the years.
Both have shared with me how difficult it was to be with out their birth child,
I want to help support young mother’s in their choice to be single parents.
In Korea, that is a very brave and courageous choice.”
Now that JooYoung is back in the United States, she is using

babies at Ae Ran Won!” – Sincerely, JooYoung Choi
