With support from our non-profit partners Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL) and Trees, Water & People, Positive Legacy and Jam Cruise passengers led the charge in seeding 6,000 citrus trees, thus launching a 10,000 seedling nursery at SOIL’s rural compost site in Limonade, Haiti. Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People have partnered to offset Jam Cruise passenger’s carbon footprint since Jam Cruise 6, a collaboration that has netted tens of thousands of trees planted and hundreds of clean cookstoves built. JC10 represented the most ambitious carbon offsetting effort to date, as the establishment of this nursery will lead to a healthier environment, stable livelihoods, and increasing tree cover in Northern Haiti for years to come.
In partnership with Soles4Souls and with contributions from One World Running, Nike and Jam Cruisers all over the country, Positive Legacy blew its most ambitious goal yet – of collecting 10,000 pairs of shoes for the people of Haiti, out of the water! More than 12,200 pairs of shoes plus 2,000 pairs of socks contributed by cruisers were collected. Our partners will be distributing them, one pair at a time, for months to come. Special thanks to the cruisers who conducted drives in their own schools, workplaces and communities! Way to Leave a Positive Legacy one person at a time!
