Closer to the Sun 2017

Join our Positive Legacy Programs During Closer To The Sun 2017

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!

Here are some easy and fun ways to engage in Positive Legacy at Closer To The Sun:


Day of Service & Cultural Connection with Positive Legacy

Friday Dec. 15th – Event DAY 3 – 9:45am-2:30pm TICKETS HERE!

Join Positive Legacy for a visit to the local community, Central Vallarta, for a day of cultural exchange, community service and celebration!

Central Vallarta is a small community with little financial means, but rich with community relationships. We will GIVE BACK by engaging in much needed landscaping, garden building & painting of the community’s school.  We will ENGAGE with cultural interaction through presentations from the community, by enjoying traditional Mexican cuisine and local music. After our work in the community we will experience the jungle by swimming in a cenote and zip lining!

Your support will help fund a much needed school expansion in Central Vallarta, whose student population has exceeded the capacity of their current schoolhouse. The school also serves as the community’s gathering space, bringing people of all ages together for social activities and strengthening their cultural identity. The community members only have enough funds to meet necessary means such as food, water and shelter, making the school expansion project unattainable without yours and Positive Legacy’s support.
