Kicks4Kids 2014! Holiday Help for the Kids of Playa!
Are you looking for a way to help some of the the less fortunate children of Playa del Carmen this holiday season? Kicks4Kids is once again collecting sneakers and we need your support!
Some of the children live in remote jungle villages with no access to affordable shoes. Some of the children live within the city center but are from economically disadvantaged families. Some have no family at all.
Good quality shoes are very pricy here. Good sneakers for even little children cost about 300 pesos…making them a luxury item for many families. Shoes in the discount stores or grocery stores are more affordably priced but won’t last more than a few months.
How can you help? If you are traveling to Playa del Carmen or anywhere on the Riviera Maya this holiday season, please bring us a pair of NEW sneakers from your local Payless, Target, Walmart or wherever you can find good quality shoes at good prices. They don’t have to be a fancy brand, just well-made, sturdy, new sneakers that children can run and play in! One pair will be great...if can bring more...even better!
Shoe sizes currently needed are:
Girls Sneakers MX 22 - 26 / US 4 - 8 adult
Boys Sneakers MX 22 - 28 / US 4 - 10 adult
This will be updated as the collection progresses and new children are added to the list.
Sneakers can be dropped of at any of the Amigos Network partners.
