Last Fundraiser of 2016!

"Meet Alí, one of our long-time young friends. Alí and his sister Megan have been coming to Hekab Be after school for more than 4 years and love the activities, learning, and opportunity to build friendships that the program provides them. Please help us make sure that the library programs continue into the future for children like Alí, his sister, and his friends in the pueblo of Akumal."


This year three generous library supporters have offered Hekab Be a challenge to match $2500.00 USD in donations!  

This means that for every dollar donated to Hekab Be between December 15 and December 31, 2016 we will be able to match it dollar-for-dollar, to raise up to $5000.00!  Please help us to succeed in meeting this challenge offer, so we can ring in a prosperous New Year.

We realize the holiday season is a time when many organizations are asking you to give, but we hope that you will consider Hekab Be.  Every dollar you donate will count double to support our free programs for children and families in Akumal!

Remember we are a U.S. tax-exempt organization, so your donation is deductible!
