Become a Card Carrying
Member of the Revolution

Change the world in four easy steps with these intentional act of kindness kits. With the 26 cards in each, you'll find yourself picking up someone else's tab at a restaurant, writing a letter to someone who inspired you, picking up the trash on your street, giving genuine compliments and so much more! The coolest thing about Boom Boom! cards is that you can create a chain reaction of covert kindness that could theoretically travel around the world!

How to play:

1) Do the revolutionary act of kindness on the card.

2) Go to boomboomrevolution.com and tell your story and upload pictures and video.

3) Pass the card on to anyone (a friend, a stranger, your mom).

4) Follow your card on the website's map as it moves across the globe!

Created by Mary Beth Campbell (Chief Revolutionary Officer) and Helene Scott (Chief Creative Instigator) to incite an "uprising of guerilla goodness." Click here to read the story.

Boom Boom

Like the boomerang, we believe whatever thoughts, actions and/or words you put out into the world eventually find their way back to you, but not before covering a lot of ground a long the way. What's the quickest and simplest way to communicate this karmic notion? By saying, "Boom Boom". You put it out...it comes back.

The more we used the phrase, the more it started to take on a life of its own. While the underlying sentiment was always the same...you get back what you give...the subtlety around its different uses started to emerge. Suddenly, shouting an enthusiastic "Boom Boom!" when we ran into a friend felt better and more expressive than, "Good to see you." When walking out the door, saying "Boom Boom" worked just as well as goodbye. If we needed an expression of celebration or congratulations we found ourselves doing the ol' fist pound and exclaiming, "Boom BOOM!" And when someone did something nice for us, a simple "Boom Boom" expressed our gratitude in a way that "thanks" just didn't quite equal.

After using the phrase for a few years and having other people pick up on it we started to wonder if there wasn't something more there. Ultimately, Boom Boom had become more than an expression. It had become an attitude. A way of life. This led us to wonder: could there be a whole culture of Boom Boom? Could we incite a global revolution of kindness powered by Boom Boom? What if the world had just a little bit more Boom Boom? What would happen? So, we thought we'd see what we could do about it.

And that brings us to here. To this idea and the fruition of what everyone agreed was a far too crazy, far too nice, and far too altruistic idea: that Boom Boom could change the world.

It is a revolution in every sense of the word and we're glad you're with us, filling the world with more "Boom Boom!" Thanks for joining the cause.

      Comments about BOOM BOOM CARDS:

      This was a gift for my 8 yr old grandson to encourage him to think about easy ways to be kind to others, to pay it forward. While he can use or alter many of the cards, most are for adults.

      Service and delivery comments:

      It took a long time to arrive after notification that it was shipped. I was more disturbed by the waste from the size of the box and filler paper inside. The item was only the size of a deck of cards... yet it came in a 14"x14"x4" box full of filler paper!!! No wonder the shipping was expensive.

              I bought these as stocking stuffers for my 11 year old twins, a friend (we are a group of jigsawy puzzlers and exchange stockings at Chirstmas) and myself. This is a fun way to remind ourselves of paying the positive forward. Each card reminds me to be grateful for my family, friends and community and brings a smile to a stranger's face.

              I bought several of this product to give as Christmas gifts and to keep one for myself. I used one card already and passed it along. I truly love this idea. It really helps bring someone out of their shell and guides them into helping others as well as themselves. I look forward to completing this deck and seeing what other decks are available.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery of this product was extremely quick and unexpected. The cards arrived packed in a large bubbled envelope with no problems.
