The 4th Annual KKIS Project Fundraising Auction held yesterday, March 4, was an outstanding success. We wish to thank all attendees, donors and sponsors for supporting the Project. Our goal was to raise $17,000 US in order to help 900 children with school supplies in August before school begins and the event far exceeded our expectations.
There was excitement in the air as the live auction began and bids rolled in very generously. Volunteers who had spent months preparing the event began to realize their efforts to help the children of Playa del Carmen were being realized.
The next step will be to determine which public schools in Playa del Carmen are in greatest need. Meetings with the Heads of these schools will then take place where we will learn which supplies are needed for each grade level and shopping for school supplies will begin in ernest. We are grateful for all donated supplies also. There is a list of what is needed on both our Facebook page: The KKIS Project and on our website: kkisproject.org.
Thanks again to all.
