Positive Legacy

Positive Legacy is a 501(c)(3) charity organization committed to integrating live music and service by taking actions that positively impact people and the environment in the communities that we visit.

As we travel the globe we strive to transcend cultural boundaries by learning about the needs, hopes and dreams of the communities we visit while taking action to connect with the residents and be of service to them. Positive Legacy works to develop service activities that music fans and musicians can participate in to bring a deeper sense of purpose to their entertainment and travel experiences. Look at our outreach projects from last year and do your part to “Leave a Positive Legacy.” For more information, please visit the Positive Legacy Website www.positivelegacy.com.

Paradise Waits - Positive Legacy Recap 

Day of Service 

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


Charity Auction 

The live and silent auctions at Paradise Waits were a huge success! We auctioned off two guitars autographed by Phil Lesh & Bob Weir, a rockin’ custom cape from Super Rad Cap Co, and dozens of photos donated by Dave Vann & Josh Timmermans. All in all, we raised over $32,000 for Further Foundation and Positive Legacy’s humanitarian and environmental projects in the region.


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, whom were both very grateful for the much needed supplies. Your contributions will go to great use for months to come!




Carbon Offsets 

Gracias to Paradise Waits patrons who traveled responsibly, by offsetting the emissions from your travel to Riviera Maya for Paradise Waits! 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!
