Since COVID hit, Positive Legacy has been doing everything they can to support the Live Music Community. To stay relevant and to support the community that has been contributing to their fundraising platform over the past 15 years at music events, they pivoted from event fundraising to solely an online platform. Working with Cloud 9 Adventures and artists coast-to-coast, they released virtual content and shows to entertain viewers while they stayed safe at home, fundraising for the live music industry crew who were out of work. Positive Legacy identified this need since these workers have specialized and refined skill sets and since the live event industry continues to be impacted by COVID, they will be one of the last to be able to safely return to work. Since May they have proudly raised and provided over $65,000 in direct support to live event industry crew workers.
As the holiday season approaches, Positive Legacy continues to support the Music Community that remains unemployed. They proudly launched a “Winter Wishes Gift Drive” and are now accepting GIFT WISHES from unemployed Music Community members. Once the WISHES have been received, there will be a push asking those that can, to help make those WISHES come true!
“We are happy to continue supporting the Music Industry crew during this time as the Winter will become more mentally and financially challenging for our community than the rest of the year has been. We are excited to provide a platform to spread joy and support our neighbors in need to ensure that the holidays bring smiles to children and families who wouldn’t have the income to otherwise purchase gifts. Please help us make this a reality, as giving to those in need is the greatest gift of all.” ~ Kristen Sommer-Swager, Executive Director of Positive Legacy.
Any unemployed events crew members that are in need of support purchasing a gift for their child this holiday season can submit a GIFT WISH until FRIDAY, November 6th.
ONE GIFT WISH per child can be submitted with a cost between $20-$50 USD.

Once all the WISHES are received, Positive Legacy will run a campaign to fulfill these WINTER WISHES November 2nd - 30th, ending on Cyber Monday. Anyone interested in helping to make those WISHES come true can peruse the gift registry (LINK BELOW) that Positive Legacy will have set up starting November 2nd to select and purchase a specific gift requested by a child. Positive Legacy will confidentially take care of the rest. They will work to fulfill as many WINTER WISHES as they receive!
