All About Rotary Seaside
Playa del Carmen Seaside Rotary provides support and guidance to a number of local non-profit organizations that offer assistance to disadvantaged families and at-risk children in the region.
All About KKIS - keeping kids in school
The KKIS provides school supplies and teaches English to children in Playa del Carmen. The majority of children KKIS works with live in extreme poverty and are often victims of abuse and neglect. Providing these children with the necessary school supplies and basic English skills increases the odds the children can stay in school and gain an education that will lead to a brighter future.
All About Kicks
Kicks 4 Kids supports a shoe drive to collect and distribute new sneakers to school-age children in outlying villages and remote areas in the jungle surrounding Playa del Carmen. The primary health issue in these villages is snakebite. Providing these villages with the necessary shoes will increase health and provide support and protection from sharp stones, stinging insects, and snakes.
U.S. citizens bringing gifts to friends and relatives in Mexico should be prepared to demonstrate to Mexican Customs officials the origin and value of the gifts. U.S. citizens entering Mexico by air or sea can bring in gifts with a value of up to $300.00 USD duty-free.
Please make sure when bringing items into Mexico for KKIS and Kicks 4 Kicks you designate it as a GIFT and not a donation. It's also best to split up the items amongst your group. Each member pack a couple of items in his/her suitcase(s).
