Positive Legacy, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit arm of Cloud 9 Adventures, is committed to integrating live music and service by taking actions that positively impact the communities we visit. Positive Legacy’s mission inspires music fans and artists to collectively take action and build a better world. The goal is to develop service activities that people can participate in to bring a deeper sense of purpose to their travel experiences and the music surrounding it.

Day of Service

Positive Legacy would like to thank all the Closer to the Sun fans, musicians and artists for their support! Guests ventured outside the resort for our Day of Service and Community Action at Xcacel, a local turtle sanctuary and beach. Joining with our partners, Flora, Fauna y Cultura, we were able to pick up TONS of trash and paint signs encouraging beach visitors to keep it clean! The grant we gave Xcacel will support facility improvements to protect the ecosystem around the park.

Charity Auctions

We are grateful to everyone who donated and placed bids supporting our charity auction, which raised over $21,000 for our turtle saving efforts in the Yucatan. Your contributions support all our environmental and sustainability projects throughout Mexico and we couldn’t do it without you! If you’re interested in donating an item for a future Closer to the Sun auction, please contact Positive Legacy directly.

Donation Drive

The generosity of our guests knows no bounds. Each year, fans bring items to Mexico which are donated to Dreams for Mayan Children for community distribution. Doing this provides necessary materials for schooling and essential medical supplies that truly make a difference to the local community.
