A KB Christmas
Santa Claus is coming to town! Specifically, to Marqcocasa and Palcca.
This year marks the fifth annual KB Christmas Gift Donation. Started in 2013, this is a yearly holiday event we arrange for the children of Marqocasa and Palcca. These two towns are located near Salkantay and Rainbow Mountain, respectively, and have been fundamental to our success and growth as a tour operator in Cusco.
A few weeks before the event, KB Tours purchases toys from local Cusqueñan toy stores to donate to the children of Marqcocasa and Palcca. With the help of our staff, we travel to each town for a full day of gift giving and holiday celebration.
This year we will be visiting the town of Marqcocasa on December 8th and Palcca on December 16th. Festivities run from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. In addition to the toy donation we will also be bringing hot chocolate and bread for everyone, a clown for entertainment, and of course Santa Claus.
Social responsibility is of the upmost importance to KB Tours, and as we expand our global reach with new trekkers from all over the world we want to make sure we maintain our relationships at the local level too. This event is our way to say thank you and celebrate with the families who have so kindly helped us on our countless treks throughout the land they call home. These families do not have many of the resources found in the more affluent parts of the world, so we hope to bring smiles to their faces and joy to their hearts as we make this day as special for them as possible. They certainly deserve it!
If you are in Cusco and wish to donate a toy, stop by our office at 351 Procuradores St. interior 120 from 9 am to 8 pm Monday- Saturday before the 8th of December. Though we have plenty of toys ready to gift, donations are always welcome and much appreciated.
As always thank you for choosing to adventure with KB Tours, may all your Christmases and journeys be merry and bright!
The KB Family
