In memory of his late 14-year-old daughter Chloe, Coleman president Jon Coleman and his family announced the establishment of “Chloe’s Kids,” a program that will provide support to impoverished children in Guatemala. The program will be overseen by Holt International Children’s Services, which will
partner with Guatemala City-based Associación para la Integración Familiar (APIF).
Jon Coleman gratefully acknowledged the tremendous outpouring of support he and his family received from friends, family and Coleman’s clients following Chloe’s death. “I am pleased to tell you that nearly 45,000 has been donated in Chloe’s memory,” Coleman wrote in a letter mailed to friends and business associates and posted on Coleman’s website. “This represents the largest memorial gift ever received by Holt International Children’s Services.”
Upon Chloe’s passing in June of 2007, the Coleman family specifically requested that donations be made in her memory to Holt International, an international adoption organization dedicated to placing orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children with permanent, loving families.
Chloe was a native of Guatemala City who was adopted by Jon and Linda Coleman when she was six months old. Donations to Chloe’s Kids can be made through www.holtintl.org.
