Positive Legacy

One World United Through Music

Positive Legacy, a 501(c)(3)not-for-profit organization, works to magnify the cultural experience of those attending Girls Just Wanna Weekend. Positive Legacy’s mission is to inspire music fans and artists to collectively take action and build a better world by creating meaningful opportunities to participate in humanitarian and environmental outreach projects that support the local community. With a Day of Service, Donation Drive, and Charity Auction, we are proud to have Positive Legacy as a partner, cultivating and pursuing a better world through music.


Thank you to everyone who helped leave a Positive Legacy at Brandi Carlile's Girls Just Wanna Weekend 2019! More information will be released on how to make a difference in 2020.


Full Positive Legacy Recap

Thank you to everyone that joined us on the inaugural Day of Service at Xcacel, a local turtle sanctuary. We worked hard protecting, educating, and supporting the flora and fauna in their community, on the beach, and in the surrounding jungle. Our sold out Day of Service consisted of many service projects: sorting micro-plastics from the sand, clearing space off the beach to build a picnic area, building a fence to keep people from stepping into the delicate ecosystems, and blocking off old trails to the beach to control the flow of people onto the property. The sun shined as we enjoyed fresh local food, Spanish guitar music, and swam in the beautiful Caribbean Sea! 

Information on the 2020 Day of Service will be sent to all booked guests later this year. 
We are thrilled to announce that Positive Legacy raised over $27,000 in the 2019 charity auctions! Auction proceeds will support Positive Legacy’s continued environmental & humanitarian projects in Mexico, including our work with Xcacel. Thank you to everyone who bid in the auction and made the first year such a success! Big thank you to the musicians and their management, fans, and artists who supported the auction with custom donations. Information on the 2020 auctions will be released prior to the event. If you are interested in donating an item, contact Positive Legacy.
We partner with Trees Water People, a Colorado based non-profit organization that manages dozens of sustainability projects throughout Central America and the Caribbean, to help offset the emissions impact from our travels to Mexico.
 
Positive Legacy and guests like YOU have offset over 27,000 tons of CO2 emissions from our events, directly funding the planting of over 219,000 trees and building about 700 clean cookstoves in Haiti and Central America. Offset your carbon emission with a $15 donation when you book your Girls Just Wanna Weekend 2020 reservation, any time through your Cloud 9 Account, or on the Trees Water & People website.
