Hurricane Dorian Relief

In response to Hurricane Dorian and Positive Legacy’s upcoming visit to the Bahamas on Jam Cruise 18, we invite you to join us in providing a little HOPE to the communities that were devastated by this hurricane in August 2019.

Although we don’t hear much about the ongoing recovery process in the news these days, the need is great in the communities that were affected by the storms. We are proud to partner with Positive Legacy and All Hands and Hearts to help the locals rebuild. HOPE STARTS HERE, DONATE TODAY!

Funds will be matched – every $1 donated turns into $2 in relief funds.
