One Big Holiday 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.

We had a great day in Dos Palmas working with our partner, Dreams for Mayan Children! In the morning we broke ground on the school’s garden beds, scattered seeds and plants, painted a mural, and cleaned the grounds. After our work we went to a village down the road where we were immersed in Mexican culture. We cooled off with a dip in a breathtaking cenote, browsed crafts made by local artisans, took a tortilla making class, and ate a traditional Mayan lunch. The day ended with a Temazcal ceremony and musical performance by the school children.
We are pleased to announce that Positive Legacy raised over $29,000 at the One Big Holiday 2017 silent and live charity auctions! Thank you to everyone who bid in the auction and took home a unique piece of memorabilia. A special thank you to the musicians, their management, and all the fans and artists who supported the auction with their custom donations. Stay tuned for details on how to donate to the 2018 auctions!
Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People make it easy to travel responsibly, by offsetting the emissions from your travel for One Big Holiday. 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. Offset your carbon footprint by making a donation when booking your 2018 reservation.
We are always looking for a few good helping hands onsite at our events to:

  • Collect and organize donations at events
  • Assist our team to prepare items for our Charity Auctions 
  • Staff the Positive Legacy table on site and share the activities and great work we are doing 
  • Participate in one of Day of Service events Act as a Volunteer Captain for “Day Of” events and outings
