A Small Act & BB! Revolution

A Small Act, the award winning HBO documentary film, has partnered with Boom Boom! Revolution to spread the message that small acts of kindness can be very powerful.

One small act of kindness can effect big change in the world, often impacting others in profound ways that cannot be predicted.  That’s the message that is portrayed in A Small Act, and the idea behind Boom Boom’s mission to instigate an uprising of guerilla goodness. In an effort to bring increased attention to this important idea and get people involved in performing their own small acts of kindness, Boom Boom! Revolution and A Small Act have teamed up!

Small Acts of Kindness Can Change Lives

A Small Act by Jennifer ArnoldA Small Act tells the story of Hilde Back, a Swedish woman who sponsored the education of a young boy in Kenya, and Chris Mburu, the recipient of Ms. Back’s donation. He went on to graduate from Harvard Law School and become a Human Rights Lawyer for the United Nations.

The film chronicles Chris’s search to find the stranger who changed his life with her generosity, as well as the scholarship program he starts on his own and names after her. His program provides hope and opportunity for a new generation of young Kenyan students who are bright and ambitious but unable to afford school fees.

In honor of Hilde, Chris, and their story, Boom Boom! has created a special card that ties in with the message of A Small Act. This card provides instructions for carrying out a simple act of kindness that can make a big difference in someone’s life. Fifty of these special Boom Boom! cards will be handed out to attendees at each screening of the film. Those who organize and host community screenings of A Small Act will also receive a special Boom Boom! insert along with the DVD.

    There is an option to phone in a credit card, but it is not
    very convenient when compared to swiping a card. You will just order from a place that can process your card.
