Positive Legacy

One World United Through Music

Positive Legacy, would? like to thank all the fans, artists, and musicians who supported our environmental and humanitarian outreach projects at Dominican Holidaze!?

Thank you for helping us make a cultural and ecological connection as we begin phase two of our long term waste management and clean water project and the community develops a potable drinking water system.

We are thrilled to announce that the charity auction, Musical Bingo with GRiZ, the Mystery Mixologists, and Setlist Pool raised over $13,000! These funds will continue to support an ongoing clean drinking water and?sewage project in Veron, Dominican Republic.

Special shout out to the fans who joined the Day of Community Connection at the Comunidad de Domingo Maiz, where we toured the now complete and functional black water bio-filtration system, cleaned the streets of garbage, painted a mural, and danced to local music with the community youth.

Thanks for helping leave a positive legacy in 2017! 

Positive Legacy and the Punta Cana Ecological Foundation teamed up in 2012 to make improvements in the community of Veron. In the last five years we have donated over $50,000 to the Fuentes de Vida Project. This contributed to the construction of a natural waste water treatment facility and a sustainable clean water system to the 500 residents in the Domingo Maiz area. The treatment facility utilizes regional grasses and plants to naturally extract toxins from the water. The partnership’s three-step program has been recognized by the Dominican Republic government as award-winning and has created a model for the region to implement for water distribution.
We had a very meaningful Day of Service in the village of Domingo Maiz, Veron where we have been working on a long term clean water and waste management project for the past six years. We began the day by touring the now fully functional black water bio-filtration system as well as the site for the next phase of potable water. We then helped clean the streets in the central area of the village, while others repainted a community mural. We then enjoyed a delicious lunch provided by the Punta Cana Ecological Foundation chefs, while a local meringue band entertained the group. After lunch we began the prototype for the three stream waste management stations, to introduce recycling/composting to the village. The day closed out with dancing and games as we celebrated our cultural connection. 
We are pleased to announce that Positive Legacy was able to raise $12,602 in this year’s charity auction!  Auction proceeds will support Positive Legacy’s continued environmental & humanitarian projects in the DR such as the forth coming potable water system. Thank you to all of the Domincan Holidaze fans who bid in the auction. A special thank you to the musicians and their management, the fans/artists for supporting the auction with their custom donations, and Josh Timmermans and Dave Vann for their amazing photography. We had a special treat with Lyle and Ryan from The Motet providing the auction entertainment, and much appreciation goes out to Lyle for guest auctioneering and making it an auction to remember. Also big thanks go out to our guest Mystery Mixologist bartenders Brendan Bayliss, Joel Cummins and Aron Magner who spent some time behind the bar earning tips for Positive Legacy during the auction festivities.
Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People made it easy to travel responsibly, by offsetting the emissions from your travel to Dominican Republic for Dominican Holidaze. We appreciate those that donated and your generosity helped to fund tree planting and clean cookstove construction in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Cuba. If you were unable to offset you footprint at the event, please take this opportunity to feel empowered post-event and leave your own positive legacy …because every party has an impact!
