One Big Holiday 2014

 

One Big Holiday 2014

January 26-30, 2014 • Riviera Maya, Mexico

 

Day of Service 

Positive Legacy partnered with the Reef National Park of Puerto Morelos for an amazing Day of Service with One Big Holiday fans. We experienced the underwater wonders of the area by snorkeling in the reef, learned about the invasive species of lionfish, and got our hands dirty chipping wood & planting trees. Local students set up information stations about programs to reduce waste & sustain the coastal ecosystems of Puerto Morelos. The day ended with live music & dancing from local artists. Thank you to all who came along on this inspiring adventure!

 

Charity Auction

Both the live and silent auctions at One Big Holiday were a huge success! We auctioned off two autographed guitars and dozens of photos donated by Ryan Mastro, Dave Vann  & Josh Timmermans.  All in all, we raised over $20,000 for future Positive Legacy projects!

 

Donation Drive

Thank you to all of you who remembered to pack some school supplies & sports equipment in your suitcases this past week! These items were donated to two very appreciative local schools in Puerto Morelos. Your contributions will go to great use!

 

Poolside BINGO

Thanks to everyone who participated in the charity poolside BINGO! We had a blast with the music trivia and gave out fun prizes. With you support we were able to raise $1,000 to support Positive Legacy projects and beneficiaries!

 

Carbon Offsets

Gracias to One Big Holiday patrons who traveled responsibly, by offsetting the emissions from your travel to Riviera Maya for One Big Holiday! A $15 carbon offset donation helps a Guatemalan family reduce their firewood consumption by 50%, helps a Haitian family plant fruit trees that will nourish their children and generate income, and helps a Honduran family switch from Kerosene lanterns to clean solar lighting. If you haven’t already, it’s not too late to leave a positive impact on your Cloud 9 Adventure this year – offset your carbon footprint with Trees, Water & People!
