Closer to the Sun 2017 Recap

Read more about the 2017 initiatives in the tiles below or get the full in-depth report from our adventure by visiting Positive Legacy's website.

Closer to the Sun 2017 fans joined the Positive Legacy Team for a memorable visit to the nearby community, Central Vallarta. With help from the locals, we painted a mural, built garden beds and cleared the ground for foundation to be laid for the new building structure, which Positive Legacy has provided grant funds to be built. This new structure will double the capacity for all community space needs, meeting the much needed demand for more space. After our hard work we enjoyed a refreshing swim and zip-line in a nearby cenote. We enjoyed a traditional Mexican lunch and jazz music from the local band, The Caribbean Quartet, who also backed G. Love for an intimate treat.

More information on the 2018 Day of Service will be announced soon. We hope to see you all there!
We are pleased to announce that with your help, Positive Legacy was able to raise over $22,000 in the 2017 charity auctions! We would like to give a shout out to Trevor Young (SOJA) and G. Love for performing and keeping vibes high during the silent auction and to G. Love and Chad Lamb’s entertainment during the live auction. Special thanks to all those who placed bids and to all the musicians and artisans who supported the auction with a unique auction donation. Auction proceeds will support Positive Legacy’s environmental & humanitarian projects with local non-profits in the Puerto Morelos community. If you have an item you'd like to donate for 2018, contact Positive Legacy!
Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People make it easy to travel responsibly, by offsetting the emissions from your travel to Mexico for Closer to the Sun. We appreciate those that donated to the carbon offset program in 2017. Your donations support a community tree nursery that is producing 10,000 trees a year for rural communities on the north coast of Haiti, providing the sequestration of thousands of tons of carbon dioxide emissions. You can offset your carbon footprint when booking your 2018 reservation or by logging in at any time to donate!
