We believe that local charitable organizations have the ability to affect major change in a community. With that in mind, we have focused our partnership and giving efforts on organizations with distinct causes in the San Diego area. One dollar of every pass sold by KAABOO will be distributed among our community partners through our charitable giving program, KINDNESS.
