We are a group of people who are impassioned to change the world. We had an idea, we thought we’d try it. It’s that basic.
It started way back in December of 2006.
After working with the Boomerang Project and their internationally recognized character/kindness programs Link Crew and WEB for 15 years and witnessing the impact they had at schools, we wondered what would happen if the underlying philosophies of Link Crew and WEB were applied to the general population? After all, we reasoned, if we can ask high school and middle school students to be kinder and care more about each other and they do, wouldn’t other people to do it too? And, with that, Boom Boom! Revolution was born!
It was a simple idea, really (or so we thought). After all, we reasoned, how hard could it be to make cool looking and compelling “call to action” cards that you can track on a website? Turns out, pretty hard. So after a couple years of plotting, planning and palpitations (the heart kind) we were thrilled to go live with our website in December 2008 and followed that with an official public beta launch in February 2009.
Since, then, we haven’t looked back.
In case you are unfamiliar with them, 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!
There are 26 cards in a kit, each one is an invitation to join the Boom Boom! Revolution, a small but growing army of people who are sure that we can re-vision the world we know and create the world we want through simple actions that allow us to reach out and exercise the innate altruism that lives in all of us.
It’s an experiment, really. It’s never been done before.
Aren’t you curious to see what happens? We sure are. Why not get your own pack of cards, join us in this kindness movement and play along? The worst that could happen is we add a little bit more Boom Boom! to the world.
Plus, each time you register your deck, you have the opportunity to select a charitable organization for which you can play your deck and we will donate 10% of profits to that organization. With Boom Boom! Cards you can be nice twice!
This won’t be all you’ll hear from us, there’s much more to come, including more products that promise to promote kindness and help people uncover the innate altruism that resides in each of us.
We’ve got big, big plans, so stay tuned.
