BPM LOCAL ACTIONS / Donation Party with Timo Maas

[Versión en español abajo]

Let's dance for a good cause

Over the past few years as a way to help the local community here in Playa Del Carmen, The BPM Festival has called on the help of fans to support our donation events for various local causes.  Whether it’s food for disaster relief  or sweaters during winter for those who are in need, we have appreciated the great response from fans for these activities.  If you were coming to party, it's an added bonus to help those in need while you dance!

This time, The BPM Festival and Blue Parrot presented another donation party edition where any of these food combinations were valid for one ticket to see Timo Maas: 6 cans of tuna, or 2 kg, of rice / beans, or 6 bottles of water. We received the following donation:

744 liters of water

956 cans of tuna

470 bags of rice

127 bags of bean

Food was delivered to DIF Solidaridad this week.  DIF Solidaridad is a local official organization which regularly supports vulnerable groups in Playa, and in case there was a natural disaster (knock on wood!) - they would be in charge of distributing this food the best way for the community.

If you danced with Timo Maas, Omar Labastida and Jeff Gold on July 28 at Blue Parrot, you helped be part of this donation. Gracias!


A bailar por una buena causa

Durante los últimos años y con la intención de apoyar a la comunidad local de Playa del Carmen, The BPM Festival ha buscado el apoyo de los fans en eventos por donativo para distintas causas sociales.  Ya sean alimentos no perecederos, o prendas de abrigo durante el invierno para gente necesitada, hemos notado una buena respuesta a estas iniciativas.  Si ya era seguro que vendrías a la fiesta, por qué no divertirte ayudando.  

En esta ocasión, en conjunto con Blue Parrot, The BPM Festival presentó otra edición de fiesta por donativo donde cualquiera de estas combinaciones era equivalente a un acceso personal para ver a Timo Maas: 6 latas de atún, 2 kg. de arroz o frijol, ó 6 botellas de agua. Al final de la noche cerramos con los siguientes donativos: 

744 lt. de agua

956 latas de atún

470 bolsas de arroz

127 de frijol.

Los alimentos fueron entregados esta semana al DIF Solidaridad, organización local oficial que contribuye regularmente al bienestar de los grupos vulnerables en Playa, y en caso de que hubiera una contingencia  (toco madera!) - estarían a cargo de distribuir estos alimentos de la mejor manera.

Si bailaste con Timo Maas, Omar Labastida y Jeff Gold el pasado 28 de julio en Blue Parrot, eres parte de este donativo. ¡Gracias!

#BPMOperationHydration

[Versión en español abajo]

Over the past few years, The BPM Festival has been contributing to the local community and getting involved in donations, events and charitable activities.

One of our summer local actions for this year is called (in English) #BPMOperationHydration.

If you live in Playa del Carmen you will agree with us when we say the heat can be exhausting during the summer season. So, we decided to help the community stay hydrated.

Fiji water and The BPM Festival join together on our mission to keep the people of Playa del Carmen hydrated.

Our goal is to share a free bottle of water with the people working under and in the sun all day. If you find our team on the streets, please don’t hesitate to ask for your bottle of water.

Reuse or bring your empty bottle(s) to authorized recycling spots in Playa del Carmen. You can also Bring it to the BPM Store which is open on weekends (Friday to Sunday from 12 to 6pm) and receive a surprise free gift.

Remember that water is vital to our organs. If you are in Playa del Carmen, please join #BPMOperationHydration.

· · · · · · · · · ·

Desde hace ya algunos años hemos buscado la oportunidad de colaborar con la comunidad local e involucrarnos en eventos de donativo y otras actividades solidarias.

Una de nuestras acciones locales de verano se llama #OperacionHidratacionBPM. Si vives en Playa del Carmen coincidirás con nosotros que durante esta temporada el calor llega a ser agotador.  Por lo que decidimos apoyar a la comunidad a mantenerse hidratados.

Con el apoyo de agua Fiji, The BPM Festival busca concientizar a la sociedad a tomar más agua regularmente. Hemos enfocado esta campaña en regalar una botella de agua a aquellas personas que trabajan todo el día bajo el sol.

Si en tus días de verano te encuentras a nuestro equipo, no dudes en pedir tu botella de agua.

Reutiliza o lleva tu botella vacía a reciclar en los puntos autorizados. Si lo llevas a la Tienda BPM, abierta todos los fines de semana (viernes a domingo de 12 a 6pm), obtén una sorpresa.

Recuerda que el agua es vital para nuestro organismo. Si estas en Playa del Carmen, únete a #OperaciónHidrataciónBPM.

Onca Maya donation / Donativo a Onca Maya

[Versión en español abajo]

The BPM Festival donates to local organization Onca Maya A.C supporting jaguar conservation programs in the region

The jaguar is an endangered species, also regarded as a magical beast in mythology dating back to the Mayan and Aztec civilizations. The BPM Festival is spotlighting the plight of this iconic cat and supports big cat rescue from the tourism trade in Mexico, and is proud to announce a new alliance with local organization Onca Maya. During a press conference Thursday, April 28, a donation was given to the Onca Maya representatives.

Onca Maya is a non-profit organization established in 2006 by a group of biologists, some of whom have been dedicated to the cause for over two decades, concerned about the future of natural habitats in the Mayan region.

Based in Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, Onca Maya's mission is to provide the tools and information needed to help biodiversity conservation in the Mayan Region, and to participate as decision-makers to protect the habitat.

At the press conference, Onca Maya shared that its estimated around 20,000 jaguars inhabited Mexico in the past, and only around 4,000 are left today. The most recent census registered only 200 animals in the north region of Quintana Roo.

Concerned about the region’s biodiversity, The BPM Festival supports this local initiative that enriches the natural attractions. In our ninth edition, The BPM Festival donated $70,000 pesos, to support local jaguar conservation programs via Onca Maya A.C.  The total corresponds to $1 peso per attendee.

The BPM Festival entrega donativo económico a la organización local Onca Maya A.C para apoyar programas de conservación del jaguar

El jaguar es una especie en peligro de extinción y una presencia mágica y mitológica que data de la era de la civilización Maya y Azteca.  Ante la difícil situación de este icónico felino, BPM decidió apoyar su protección y rescate mediante una alianza con la organización local Onca Maya.  En rueda de prensa el jueves 28 de abril, se entregó a los representantes de dicha asociación un donativo.

Onca Maya es una organización no gubernamental formada en 2006 por un grupo de conservacionistas preocupados por el futuro de los recursos naturales en la región maya, algunos de ellos dedicados al tema por más de dos décadas.

Con base en Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, su misión es generar herramientas e información necesarias para contribuir a la conservación de la biodiversidad en la región maya y participar en la toma de decisiones en torno a esta.

En rueda de prensa se comentó que se calcula que en México existieron cerca de 20mil jaguares, de los cuales solo quedan alrededor de 4mil.  En la zona norte de Quintana Roo, el censo más reciente registró cerca de 200 animales.

Preocupados por la biodiversidad de la región y dispuestos a sumar a aquellos proyectos locales que enriquecen los atractivos naturales del destino, The BPM Festival dona la cantidad de $70mil pesos, para apoyar programas enfocados a la conservación del jaguar mediante Onca Maya A.C. Total que corresponde a $1peso por cada asistente a la 9a. edición del festival.
