The not-for-profit organization KaBOOM! expresses its mission and vision this way: "KaBOOM! is a national non-profit dedicated to saving play for America's children. Our mission is to create great playspaces through the participation and leadership of communities. Ultimately, we envision a place to play within walking distance of every child in America." As a playful way of promoting its cause, KaBOOM! staffers distribute kazoos wherever they go.
