2017 KKIS Auction



School Supplies for a Year
Cost the same as a Ticket to the Auction

Live Auction March 1st; Buy Ticket Now
KKIS Online Auction Feb 14 - 24


It's sometimes easy to forget how having school supplies made learning fun. Remember how a new box of crayons or the first page of a new notebook brought excitement on the first day of school? Most children in the public school system in Mexico have never felt that. And worse, many can't afford to go on to public high school which is not free.

For 6 years, the KKIS Auction has been the vehicle for positive change in the lives of a growing number of children in Playa del Carmen. Be part of this proud community tradition!

Join us at the Live Auction on Wednesday, March 1st at Wah Wah Beach Bar. Doors will open at 4:00 with a huge silent auction, raffle and live entertainment followed by the live auctioneer and buffet dinner.

Buy Tickets Now!!! Tickets purchased before the auction are $25 USD / $500 pesos and at the door are $35 USD / 700 pesos. They can be purchased:
Online at www.kkisauction.com
At KKIS headquarters on the northwest corner of Ave. 35 and Calle 32 from 1:00 - 5:00 weekday afternoons
From a dedicated volunteer near you - info@kkisproject.org

SEE YOU AT WAH WAH BEACH BAR ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1 AT 4:00 PM!



The Online auction is winding down. It closes Friday, March 24th at 6:00 pm. There are still great deals waiting for your bid!

25% of the school supplies KKIS provides to needy students during the first week of school in August came to us as in kind donations. Please think of doing some dollar store shopping to fill up your suitcase when visiting Playa del Carmen. Then be in touch with us to arrange drop off. It may help in customs to copy the home page of www.kkisproject.org and place it atop the school supplies so they understand these are donations to a non-profit organization. If you are not planning a trip to Playa soon please consider making a donation to the KKIS Project so we can buy school supplies. There are donate button on the KKIS Project Facebook page and on the website: www.kkisproject.org.

This is the list:

24 Packs of colored pencils
White erasers
Glue sticks
Round or pointed scissors
Simple calculators
Pencil cases
Yellow highlighters
Plastic rulers
Folders with bright colors or pictures outside & pockets inside
USB for computer research
12 packs of colored markers
Red, blue and black ball point pens
Pencils

School supplies can be dropped off at the KKIS Headquarters on the corner of Calle 32 and 35th Avenue, or any of the locations below. Thank you!
Wah Wah Beach Bar: Calle 2 and the beach
The Snorkel Shop: Calle 28 near the beach
Don Chendo: Ave 30 & Calle 20
