If this week has found you in something of a February,
get ready for a ray of sunshine …
It’s STILL Random Acts of Kindness Week! (Meg wrote about it yesterday.)
In other words, there’s still time to get out and make people smile
(which, as we all know, is a proven path to summoning our own smiles.)
Need a little inspiration to get started?
Well, here comes the boom …
or, rather, the Boom Boom.
As in boomerang—what comes around goes around—karma—that sort of thing.
Boom Boom! Cards are revolutionizing the way people can express kindness at any given moment.
How about …
In four easy steps, Boom Boom! makes it entirely possible to start changing your world.
With preconceived intentional act of kindness kits, you’ll find yourself writing a letter to someone who has inspired you, picking up the trash on your street, giving genuine compliments, tipping a weary waitress with extra generosity … you know the drill.
The cards in the kit give you a task—all you have to do is follow through.
And, the coolest thing about Boom Boom! cards is that you can create a chain reaction of covert kindness that goes on, and on, and on …
Here’s what you do:
- Select the set of cards that suits you best, and then pick a card, any card.
- Do the good deed on the card.
- Share your act of kindness on boomboomcards.com (you can even upload pictures and video).
- Pass the card on to anyone (a family member, co-worker, stranger—your call).
Then, you can follow your card on the Boom Boom! website map as it moves across town, throughout the country, maybe even around the globe.
And there’s more …
When you register your deck on the website, you get to choose a charity for which you will “play” your cards, and Boom Boom! will donate 10 percent of profits to that charity.
Looking for something a little more … free?
Try an Everyday Boom Boom! Card. It’s a “virtual” card that you can do right on site. Just go to the home page and scroll down to a row of cards icons. The last one is red and says “Everyday Boom Boom!” Just click that card and share your act of kindness.
