Kim said the volunteers gained a sense of worth as the children openly demon- strated their admiration and love. S'They,re like any other groupf' Kim said. '6They like to be noticed and touched. They want to touch or hug . . . It's just the attention." Besides the 300 students actively in- volved in the project, many others helped finance it.
