Each year, hundreds of babies are abandoned on the streets of Seoul, South Korea. Pastor Lee has made it his mission to save these "unwanted" babies who might otherwise be abandoned by their desperate mothers. To that end, Pastor Lee has constructed a "baby box" into the wall of his church where those children might be "deposited." To date, Pastor Lee has helped to save 650+ children, many of whom have physical or mental disabilities.
The original 3 days of "The Drop Box" placed the film among Fathom Events' 5 largest screenings ever, but winter weather prompted closures in cities like Dallas, Louisville and Chicago. Even so, demand to see "The Drop Box" was so high that many moviegoers were shut out of theaters.

A portion of the film’s proceeds will go to support Pastor Lee’s ministry. Moviegoers who want to help orphans in both the U.S. and globally can also contribute to the Global Orphan Care Fund. 50% of the proceeds will support Pastor Lee’s work in South Korea. To date, $350k+ has been raised via the Global Orphan Care Fund for children in need. The other 50% will go to Focus on the Family’s Wait No More program, which works with state and local groups to raise awareness of adoption from foster care and equip families to provide "forever homes" for waiting children.
