Positive Legacy

One World United Through Music

Positive Legacy, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, works to magnify the cultural experiences of those attending Castaway with Southern Ground. Positive Legacy’s mission inspires music fans and artists to collectively take action and build a better world. Positive Legacy creates meaningful opportunities for musicians and fans to participate in humanitarian and environmental outreach projects to support the local community. In addition to helping the local community, auction proceeds benefit Camp Southern Ground in their mission to give children of all abilities an opportunity to experience the magic of the outdoors.

Day 3, Sun. March 18 – 10:30am – 3:00pm 
TICKETS HERE - $50 in advance, $60 at the resort

Help to create and build waste management stations, improve community infrastructure and beautify a community park! Positive Legacy has invested $27,000 into a three-phase development plan to create an open-air education center, a storage facility and sporting complex for the school, and implement a two-stream waste management system. During the Zac Brown Castaway Day of Service on March 18, we will continue our work by building a recycling center and cleaning up the community park. We will then enjoy a locally prepared meal and live music before heading to the National Park of Xcacel, a sea turtle nesting sanctuary, for a beach cleanup and a dip in a fresh water cenote. To conclude the interactive and cultural excursion we will host an informative discussion of future and current projects with our partners before returning back to the resort for a wonderful evening of music. To learn more about this project, visit the Positive Legacy website.

In October 2016, Positive Legacy awarded Dreams for Mayan Children a $9,400 grant to support better educational outcomes and complete necessary renovations for the U Sasil Kaan School in Campamento Hidalgo, Mexico. Campamento Hidalgo a small indigenous village with a population of 200 people located in the Eastern Yucatan Peninsula. It is a true living Mayan community, where ancient traditions still exist and the Mayan language is commonly spoken, but has mostly been forgotten by the outside world.

In 2017 Positive Legacy again partnered with Dreams for Mayan Children, awarding a $10,500 grant to create a Learning Center in the community of Nuevo Durango. Their mission is to cultivate a variety of classes including basic computer skills, English language development, music education and traditional trade workshop. This project also includes supplying the Learning Center with needed materials and supplies to enable it to operate at maximum capacity for the community. Providing a resource for remote communities to utilize for expanded youth development and continued adult education is paramount for the survival of the Mayan culture.
