Charities I Love

AIDNOW exists to bring education, health, sanitation, and physical resources together to assist individuals in South Eastern Virginia, Nationally, and Globally. Basically, we are here to help. Everyone. Love is a universal language and it’s something that is in great demand in our current society.

Through our projects and connections, our goal is to see all man-kind raised to a better standard of living, bonding with their community, and reaching out to others in need.

All Hands and Hearts effectively and efficiently addresses the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by natural disasters. We communicate directly with local leaders and community members and then deploy our unique model of engaging volunteers to enable direct impact, helping to build safer, more resilient schools, homes and infrastructure.

Through community and volunteer engagement, we focus on helping families recover faster after natural disasters using our Smart Response strategy. In doing so, we strengthen both our volunteers and the communities in which we serve.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) educates individuals about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT volunteers are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking an active role in emergency preparedness projects.

Dreams for Mayan Children is a non-profit organization for Mayan children that empowers children to create lasting change in their own lives and communities. We work alongside indigenous communities offering educational and music programs, infrastructure improvements in rural schools along with sustainable learning experiences leaving a powerful impact on their futures!

We have many projects within the small community of Nuevo Durango, Mexico with the hope that we can provide the children a chance for better things in life without changing their awesome culture! We provide education materials, music & art programs, infrastructure improvements, sustainable living programs, hygiene and medical supplies, just to name a few. 

Positive Legacy integrates music and service to benefit people and the environment. We coordinate environmental and humanitarian service projects fueled by the power of music. We transcend cultural boundaries by attending to the needs and aspirations of the communities where music happens. We create sustainable support through action from musicians and fans.


Positive Legacy became a 501(c)(3) in 2010, but its mission and work began in 2003 as the greening program on board the maiden voyage of Jam Cruise, an iconic music festival onboard a cruise ship. Through years of making impactful and more sustainable changes to the cruise industry practices, the concept of Positive Legacy was born: to integrate music and service to benefit people and the environment.
