Positive Legacy is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to integrate music and service to benefit people and the environment. Working in conjunction with Cloud 9 Adventures, Positive Legacy coordinates service projects for destination events in many different countries. Fueled by the power of music, and a passion for sustainability, Positive Legacy strives to transcend cultural boundaries by learning about the needs and aspirations of the communities we visit and serving them with action from musicians and fans!
Check out all the GOOD Positive Legacy did at during One Big Holiday:
This year a team of One Big Holiday guests visited the Comunidad de Domingo Miaz to continue ongoing environmental projects. Our day began with an educational walk through of the waste-water filtration system installed by Positive Legacy and the community four years ago. Together we have worked on projects that clean wastewater before it returns to the aquifer. This has already reduced skin infections and other health issues seen in the community.
After the tour, we worked alongside community members to construct recycling stations, did a community wide cleanup, planted trees in the central park and painted a mural! After a day of work in the sun we settled in for the afternoon a lunch of fried chicken, sweet plantains and corn fritters served by community leaders, music from a local band. We all got a dance lesson to learn the local dances Meringue and Bachata, moves we could take back to the Woodstock Plaza.
It was a beautiful day of cultural connection, fun and sustainable practices. Thank you to everyone who came out to make this a “sold out” day of support for la Comunidad de Domingo Maiz! Together we are building a healthier environment for our children and the future!
We are pleased to announce that Positive Legacy was able to raise $34,475 in this year’s charity auction!
