• Passing on a Boom Boom! Card

Don’t just give your Boom Boom! Card to anyone! Give it to someone you feel will actually be inspired to play:

like an old friend, a neighbor, or the person standing next to you in line at the grocery story who seems to have that “Boom Boom!” vibe. This way you have a better chance of seeing your card travel and the world gets the benefit of more Boom Boom!

No matter who you give it to, explain what a Boom Boom! Card is:

and let people know the Boom Boom! Revolution vision, how the card can be played and why they should play it. Remember, the Boom Boom! Revolution is a new idea, a brand new concept, so people will need a little bit of explanation and inspiration to want to join you on the frontline.

Are you thinking, “Man, it’s going to be really hard for me to pass a card on, especially in person”?:

you are not alone, we get that this could be a challenge for a lot of people. And, we don’t want it to stop you from playing your cards. So, below we suggest some alternative ideas for passing cards on. Just remember, though, that the more of a connection you make with the person you give your Boom Boom! Card to, the greater the chances that they will do it and your card will live on:

  1. Hang it on a public bulletin board space.
  2. Leave it in a book for someone to find.
  3. Mail it to a friend in another city, state or country.
  4. Leave it on someone’s windshield.
  5. Put it in a neighbor’s mailbox.
  6. Leave it propped up next to the condiments in a restaurant.
  7. On a friend or neighbor’s or door step.
  8. Leave it in your mailbox for your mail carrier.
  9. Hand it to that person you interact with every day at the coffee house, grocery store…
  10. Wrap it up as a gift.

    This has been difficult for me. I have passed on a few Boom Boom! cards only to see that they have not been used! How frustrating! However, I have embarked on a journey to get the youth of the state of Idaho turned on to the Boom Boom Revolution. We, Idaho Drug Free Youth, the largest drug and alcohol prevention organization in the state, have adopted the Boom Boom cards as one of our service projects for the Idaho Youth Summit. We will be distributing Boom Boom cards to all the staff, students and volunteers at the camps, just over 500 people. Can’t wait to see what happens in the next few months! Viva La Boom Boom!

      I’m still waiting for my cards to come in but I’m worried about the same thing too! I don’t want to give someone the card and then have them not use it… Is it possible to photocopy the card so one code can go to two people?? Best of luck with your BB project! It sounds like you guys are starting a movement, I love it!

  2. I’ll be going to BlogHer this year and think the Boom Boom Cards are just what I need to get some goodwill going! Great idea!

    My school is doing Boom Boom cards, some 850 kids all doing good deeds and handing these out. I haven’t had a chance to do mine (Teen pack, number 11, no one is badmouthing others within earshot of me) but I’ll try to do it sometime in the next month. I’m going to promote this to a few of the people I know so that they can get it going too. Long Live Boom Boom Cards!

    Hi superb blog! Does running a blog such as this require a lot of work? I have absolutely no expertise in coding but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject however I just had to ask. Thank you!
