In an act of goodwill, renowned fashion designer Lee Kwang-hee has been raising funds for the disabled and the elderly in South Korea. For the last two months, Lee and ten of her staff have meticulously decorated 11 Christmas trees, which she has sold for W50 million. The idea for decorating the over two-meter tall trees came after she gained many compliments for the beautifully ornate trees in her boutique. For 2003, Lee plans to sell the W30,000 angel brooches that she designed, with funds going to persons in need, through a civic movement called "Angels of Love".
