Do You Have a Business or Product? Akumal Kids Need You!

Heads up, Riviera Maya business owners!

One of our favorite Akumal organizations is looking for some help this September. Hekab Be Library will be holding their annual online raffle starting on September 15, less than a week away! At the moment, they are still seeking donations from businesses to use as raffle prizes. Whether you have your own business or product in here in the Riviera Maya or in the USA, Hekab Be Library would love to use it in their online raffle.

Hekab Be Library AkumalSome ideas for raffle prizes you could donate are:

  • A gift certificate for a massage
  • A gift certificate for a weekend in a condo or hotel
  • A gift certificate for a week in a hotel or condo
  • A gift certificate for dinner for two
  • A gift certificate for lunch for two
  • Jewelry or art items
  • Gift cards that can be used in the U.S.
  • Akumal memorabilia (such as locally made artwork, household items, etc.)
  • T-shirts and other souvenirs

Hekab Be Library says that “raffle donations can be emailed as a certificate or mailed to one of the Board members in the United States.” Items should be easy to mail, and small enough to put in an envelope or package. (The biggest hits in past raffle prizes have been gift cards for discounted condo stays and restaurant gift cards.)

Over the years, Hekab Be Library has become an important part of the Akumal community, offering fun learning programs for local children and families. They have summer programs, art lessons, nature and eco programs, yoga, gardening, crafts and so much more to help kids learn in a fun and colorful environment.

If you have your own business or product that you can donate to the 2015 online raffle, then you can help Hekab Be make a difference!
