We’d like to say thank you to all of the Jam Cruisers who joined us on Strings & Sol 2017 to Leave a Positive Legacy…
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 Strings & Sol:
On Sunday December 11th, Strings & Sol fans joined the Positive Legacy Team for a memorable visit to the nearby community, Central Vallarta. We met the locals at the community building which serves as a schoolhouse for the local children, a center for adult education classes, and medical structure. The building also serves as a hurricane shelter to the locals whose straw roof and dirt floor homes might be damaged or flooded during storms.
Together we painted a mural, planted bushes and trees, painted the playground and cleared the ground for foundation to be laid for the new building structure which Positive Legacy has provided grant funds to be built. This new structure will double the capacity for all community space needs, meeting the much needed demand for more space. After our hard work we enjoyed a refreshing swim in a nearby cenote and we entertained each other on the zipline and cliff jumping into the cenote. We enjoyed a traditional Mexican lunch and funk music from the local band, Tree Funkers, who were also joined by Tim Carbone and Andy Goessling of Railroad Earth for some improv jams. We ended the day with a traditional pinata which was a crowd pleaser, especially for the kids! We’d like to give a big thanks to all the fans who joined us and to Tim and Andy for the intimate entertainment! We are humbled by your involvement in our projects and support for Positive Legacy!
