News: What Goes Around Comes Around… Boom Boom! Inspires
We don’t need an event or holiday as an excuse to honor some of the amazing acts of kindness stories that have graced the pages of our website recently. Especially not when they are as unique as the ones we are about to share. It’s acts of kindness stories like these that suggest what goes around really does come back around! And trust us, when you put the good out there, there’s no better feeling than witnessing its beautiful ripple effect.
Acts of Kindness Travel Fast
In her “Maine Turnpike” post, Brocksmama lets us laugh with her by detailing her interaction with a grumpy tollbooth attendant while playing Original Deck’s Card #6. Hoping against hope that ‘Mr. Grouchy’ would politely pass the card along, Brocksmama was as taken aback as we were to see the recipient of that Boom Boom! Card, Stockee2002, post in reply. After feeling down about a doctor’s order to not drive for 3 months, he ventured out with a neighbor during which they passed through the toll and received the Original Deck card!
It seems Brocksmama’s simple act of kindness had truly brightened up his day! Even better, Stockee2002 plans to forward the kindness on (that’s what Boom Boom! is all about!). We can’t wait to hear from the next lucky recipient of this card!
Kindness Cards Inspire More Than Just Spare Change
Joining this touching story in the ranks is “Courtesy in the Neighborhood.” Bosoxdad shares his use of Original Deck Card #14: “If someone in line in front of you is short a few cents, reach in your pocket and help them out.” We’re extra inspired by his generosity (as the “few cents” was really a “few dollars”) and because he even thought to do so on his birthday!
To top it off, Bosoxdad performed the act of kindness despite being troubled by the fact that the man in front of him would not have been short-changed if he weren’t also purchasing a few packs of cigarettes. Turns out, after the storeowner saw this Original Deck Boom Boom! story, he has decided to no longer sell tobacco products at his store. A fellow agent of altruism, chillcruz, sums it up, “Now that is some Boom Boom! making changes that we don’t even know were possible.”
Bosoxdad, We hope your birthday was as fantastic as you made it for others!
Karmic Kindness Game
Certainly we’ve all been told: “treat others the way you way want to be treated” and often, it is easier said than done… but with acts of kindness cards at your fingertips (yes, we’re talking about Boom Boom! Cards!), now’s the time to seize the day!
The kindness game has begun – don’t miss out! Be sure to share your acts of kindness stories in the Boom Boom! Community on our homepage!
