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 Arlington/Dallas area. One dollar of every pass sold by KAABOO will be distributed among our community partners through our charitable giving program, KINDNESS.
A friend and ally of the music community, MusiCares® was established by the Recording Academy to safeguard the health and well-being of all music people. As a safety net in times of need, MusiCares® offers programs and services including emergency financial assistance for basic living expenses such as rent, utilities, and car payments; medical expenses, including doctor, dentist and hospital bills; psychotherapy; and treatment for HIV/AIDS, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, hepatitis C, and other critical illnesses. MusiCares® offers nationwide educational workshops covering a variety of subjects, including financial, legal, medical, and substance abuse issues, and programs in collaboration with health care professionals that provide services such as flu shots, hearing tests, and medical/dental screenings. The MusiCares MAP Fund® allows access to addiction recovery treatment and sober living resources for members of the music community. Staffed by qualified chemical dependency and intervention specialists, MusiCares offers Safe Harbor Room® support, sponsored in part by the Bohemian Foundation, to provide a network to those in recovery while they are participating in the production of televised music shows and other major music events. MusiCares holds weekly addiction support groups for people to discuss how to best cope with the issues surrounding the recovery process.
