Join the Boom Boom Revolution! - Review With Giveaway!

Tuesday, May 18, 2010 Posted by Rita A


Have you ever participated in the pay it forward chain events at a drive thru, or a coffee shop? I have! Where one person starts a chain of kindness by paying for an extra something for the next person behind them. When that person comes, they are graciously paying for the next person and so on. It was a lot of fun and I was going to by my coffee anyway. It all starts with an act of kindness.

Boom Boom Cards makes it easy to share intentional acts of kindness. Change the world in four easy steps!

A little history of Boom Boom Cards:
Boom Boom! Cards are an intentional act of kindness kit where all you have to do is be kind, track it on line. If you have ever thought, “Gee, I sure would like to help change the world” this kit is for you!Started by a group of people with an idea. In 2006 co-founders Helene and Mary came up with the idea create call to action cards that could be tracked on the internet. After a few years of trial and planning, Boom Boom cards went live in December 2008 and official launch to the public in February 2009.


Each Boom Boom Card Kit comes with 26 cards. The deck is registered on the Boom Boom website and each card "played" can them be entered by logging the tracking code to the site. So what are the cards like? I was sent two editions of the Boom Boom Cards to check out the idea. The Original edition and the Teen Edition. There is one more edition to choose from ,the Everyday Boom Booms. Let's take a look at a few of the individual cards to see the concept. Original deck card #1 Buy a Stranger a cup of Coffee. How simple is that! Step one, when someone gives you a Boom Boom card, register the card at boomboomcards.com. 2. Do the act of kindness on the flip side. 3. Go back to the website and tell your story. 4. Pass the card along to anyone. You can follow your card in the website map. It is pretty interesting to see where it winds up. Here is another card idea - Card #11 Write a knock knock or silly joke on a sticky note and put it on a co-workers desk, as a bookmark in a book, or on someones door etc. Spread a little laughter. One more card #23 The next time you tip someone, be overly generous, It'll make their day. You get the idea. With 26 cards to work with, you can start a Boom Boom Revolution. The teen cards are specifically targeted for school activities, home chores and friend and family situations. Teens will love them. It is kind of fun to anonymously hand out the cards. I registered my deck so I can track the cards that are logged in. I am anxiously awaiting the first card to be entered.

    I like to 'Pay it Forward' by leaving unused coupons on the products they are for in the store. If I don't want to use them, maybe someone else will! ;)

    This is such a great idea. I like to pay for the toll for the person behind me on the bridge. I also like to make cookies or bread for friends, just because, not for a special occasion.

    I hold doors open for people, let them go ahead of me in traffic, ..little things, I think sometimes just smiling at a stranger could make a difference to them.
