STRINGS & SOL
Here are some EASY and FUN ways to engage with Positive Legacy at Holidaze 2021:
Recycled Craft Activity - Tawashi Making | Event Day 2 | 11:00-12:00 PM | Positive Legacy HQ (Lobby Bar)
Come make a homemade “zero-waste” woven kitchen sponge using recycled materials! Originating in Japan, a tawashi is a scrubbing brush for wet cleaning traditionally made from the fibers of the windmill palm. Nowadays, tawashi includes any form of sponge used for rubbing and washing. This fun and free eco-friendly 'craftivity' is first come, first serve.
Day of Service | Event Day 3 | 10:00-11:30 AM & 12:30-2:00 PM | Theatre
Food insecurity is devastating Mexico, and the pandemic has only exacerbated this inequity. The Mexican government does not provide assistance such as national unemployment benefits, so to say that our friends in the resort communities have been greatly affected by the pandemic is an understatement. We want to take this opportunity to support those who have been so good to us in our home away from home for all these years.
Join Positive Legacy, in partnership with Mike’s Amazing, in the morning or afternoon of Event Day 3 for a short 1.5-hour shift assembling food & supply boxes for families in need throughout Quintana Roo.
Name That Tune BINGO with Vince Herman | Event Day 4 | 12:30 -1:30PM| Main Pool
It’s the game we all know and love! While enjoying your afternoon by the pool, come join us in a game of musical BINGO to benefit Positive Legacy! As the songs play, you guess the name and fill in your card for the chance to win great prizes! $20 cash donation for 2 games. Play with your friends, have fun and listen to some of your favorite songs!
Live Auction | Event Day 4 | Live: 6:45PM | Positive Legacy HQ (Lobby Bar)
Come bid on one of a kind items in our live auction that you can’t find anywhere else!
Online Auction closes Event Day 4 | 7:00 PM
Bid on autographed photos, concert tickets, and unique memorabilia from Closer to the Sun musicians during the online auction! Auction proceeds support Positive Legacy’s environmental and humanitarian projects.
AUCTION LINK TO BID COMING SOON!
Offset Your Carbon Footprint anytime at Positive Legacy HQ (Lobby Bar)
Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People make it easy to travel responsibly by offsetting the emissions from your travel to Mexico for Strings & Sol. A $15 carbon offset donation will support a community tree nursery that is producing 10,000 trees a year for rural communities on the north coast of Haiti, providing fruit, improved soil quality, timber, and the sequestration of thousands of tons of carbon dioxide emissions over their lifetimes. Take this opportunity to feel empowered and leave your own Positive Legacy during Strings & Sol! Stop by Positive Legacy HQ to make a donation or take action online!
Donation Drop Off anytime at Positive Legacy HQ (Lobby Bar)

STRINGS & SOL RECAP (2012 - 2019)
Positive Legacy has been involved with Strings & Sol since its inaugural event in 2012. Over the course of eight years, Positive Legacy, with the support of festival attendees, has raised more than $101,000 for beneficiaries in Mexico!
Funds raised at S&S have supported:
Reforesting and landscaping at the Colegio De Bachilleres to create a green space for agricultural programming, outdoor learning and recreation
Building a medical center and schoolhouse in Central Vallarta
Developing the Flora y Fauna community garden site
The Botanical Gardens of El Colegio de la Frontera Sur (ECOSUR), and an urban agriculture and ecological curriculum for the local high school
Programming at Casa de la Cultura’s community center in Puerto Morelos
The Phoenix School building and expansion project in Tulum
Positive Legacy hosted the first-ever Post-Strings & Sol Eco and Cultural Immersion Experience in December of 2019. Positive Legacy partnered with Pure Paradise Travel and Dreams for Mayan Children for an adventure into the jungle. This cultural submersion trip provided insight into the lives of community members of the Mayan village Nuevo Durango, who showed us their traditions such as hammock making, organic gardening and caring for the apiary.
Thanks to everyone who has supported our organization and projects by participating in some of our favorite on-site activities including BINGO, Celebrity Bartending, the charity auction, the donation drive, Mexican Carnival and Poolside Derby!
We want to give an extra special thank you to Railroad Earth for their continued support over the years. Railroad Earth’s multi-instrumentalist Andy Goessling participated in every Day of Service from 2012 through 2017. His spirit is still missed as we remember his enthusiasm for our causes, and for walking in this world with integrity and a heart full of love.
