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

Closer to the Sun goes beyond the music with service projects to make the local community a better place. In 2019 we spent an afternoon at Xcacel, a local turtle sanctuary and beach, picking up trash and painting signs to encourage beach visitors keep it clean. Our help during the Day of Service and grant we gave Xcacel will support facility improvements to protect the ecosystem around the park.

Stay tuned for more information on how you can leave a positive legacy during the 2021 Day of Service!
