Medical Volunteer Organization
NGO(c)3 in California
Share Gift was founded in Seoul, South Korea in 2015 and now has carried over to the Bay Area on a global scale. Our goal is to share our gifts we were privileged enough to have with those in need of our community, whether that is categorized as education, financial wealth, or even things that we usually take for granted like working arms and legs or proper sight and hearing. Our vision is to start with these small actions in our community which we believe will ultimately leave a positive impact around the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly to contribute our part to the greater good. Having been established for five years as of 2020, Share Gift has expanded to five chapters globally with over 500+ members.
Our organization mainly targets four different stakeholders: senior patients, homeless families, the death and blind, and low-income students. For senior patients, we regularly visit them to keep them company. For homeless families, we organize drives to donate medical essentials and goods. For the death and blind community, we spread awareness through the American Sign Language club and remotely help them through our 'SHAREEE' app. For low-income students, we provide free tutoring sessions online through our MeetUpStudyBuddy program.

Deaf & Blind Community
Tackling the Issue
Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them.
We learn American Sign Language Together to interact with others.
In 2018, the founders of Share Gift launched an APP, SHAREEE (Share Eyes and Ears) to help people who are deaf, are hard of hearing, are deaf-blind or have a speech disability to get real time assistance from the Volunteers around the world in an easy-to-use, affordable manner.

COVID 19 Response Free Coaching Service
Volunteer Tutors and Students Meet Online
Free Peer To Peer Tutoring Platform
Since schools are closed, students can’t ask teachers for help as they normally would. We are providing a tutoring service to help students as we adapt to a life of closed schools or online learning, through an APP, Meetup Study Buddy as well as a website. Meetup Study Buddy matches selected high school tutors to students for thirty minutes to one-hour private tutoring sessions via Zoom.
We came up with the idea after receiving an email from a classmate who needed help. Many students were suddenly lost and uncertain and many schools haven’t even made their online courses official curriculum, but rather just ‘enrichment.' Simply, it’s not enough.
There’s a need for a supplement. We thought that schools shutting down or transitioning to remote learning might be especially difficult for high schoolers who are starting the college application process and planning to take AP tests.
At the beginning of March, we sent out emails to gauge student interest and areas of expertise. There were more than 100 responses, and respondents were added to a google doc to coordinate the interview and selection process.

COVID 19 Response MEAL TRAIN
The COVID19 has disrupted our lives and the most vulnerable people are low income families and senior patients. The medical workers at our local senior hospital, Cupertino Healthcare and Wellness Center can use our love as they serve on the front lines with patients and lonely, senior patients. Share Gift has been visiting Cupertino Healthcare and Wellness Center to help out senior patients over the past three years. However, it has been already 3 months since we haven't been able to meet our beloved senior patients, as of April, 2020. Let us be For Our Neighbor during this time of crisis! Purchase food for the staff and patients at Cupertino Healthcare, or Donate First Aid Kits to RotaCare Free Medical Clinc.
COVID 19 Response FUNDRAISING
As the world battles the Coronavirus pandemic, my sister and I being "sheltered in place together," decided to reduce the risk of people spreading the virus by designing and prototyping 'COVID19 Handless Handle' and donate them to the School District that has 100% Free Lunch Program and RotaCare Free Medical Clinic. We originally designed the product to give out 3D CAD file sources to the the community for free to 3D print them out. However, we found out that it costs $7.00 to print a set and we thought it can be a burden for people who are in need of financial help. So we are fundraising to donate 100 COVID19 Handless Handles to Alameda County Juvenile Court ( 2500 Fairmont Dr, San Leandro, CA 94578 ) for teenagers and RotaCare Free Medical Clinic for vulnerable senior patients. Please help us to raise at least 700 dollars to make 100 handles to donate for the good cause! Thank you very much!
