About the Cause
Vertigo's main purpose is to forward all of its collected funds to a single cause; each year a new cause will be selected by VertigoEvent.Org's Board of Directors as that year's beneficiary.
This year, all acquired donations will be passed to Sam's Place. Sam's Place offers a light of hope to deaf orphans in Kenya by providing them a safe home and a place of education. It is a little known fact that the deaf children in Kenya are usually abandoned. There have also been cases reported of deaf children being tied to trees and left for the animals.
Sam's Place is still in its beginning stages, so they need all the help they can get. The goal we have set to send over to them is $100,000. The numbers may seem overwhelming, but achieving this in a daylong event is definitely within reach if we can work together. Learn more about Sam's Place.
