Who We Are

Adrien and Gary Amadeo, founders of Secret Santa China, live in Vancouver, Canada. 

Our dream and mission could not have been realized without the help of our team, fondly known to us as, “Santa’s Helpers“:

Jenny (Vancouver, Canada) – thank you for suggesting the area in Hebei Province that is in need of our help.  This was the beginning step of our project;

Liobell (Shijiazhuang, China) – thank you for being our #1 friend and contact on the ground in China.  When we first met, you took the initiative to “run with the ball” and wasted no time in doing so.  You found the school (Yangguang (Sunshine) Primary School) and you opened the door with your many contacts.  We will be forever grateful to you;

Lily (Shijiazhuang, China) – thank you for coordinating your volunteer group, for chauffeuring us to and from the school when we visit, and for your ongoing support. We are so happy to have you on our Secret Santa China team; and

Yanxiao (Shijiazhuang, China) – thank you for your kindness and for ensuring shipments lovingly reach the village schools safely.

Jenny, Liobel, Lily and Yanxiao – thank you for your kind hearts, generosity and ongoing support.  Bless you!
