I got that Boom Boom Pow.

That chicken’s jackin’ my style.  I love that song!  I also love the idea behind the Boom Boom cards.  They are an intentional  act of kindness kit.  Kinda like a hip new version of “pay it forward”.  Here is how they describe their cards…

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.

Well…what are they?  Are you confused?

Boom Boom Cards are beautifully designed pieces of art that have individual acts of kindness written on them. You register your deck, do the acts of kindness on each card, give the card away and then write about your experience on the website. You can also upload photos and video to help tell your story. Then you can follow your card and see where your small act of kindness goes using the website’s mapping feature.

So, you take your cards and Boom Boom people.  That’s right…give them out.  You can track the acts of kindness on their web site.  What a great gift this would make…especially for a teen.  Just think…your gift could change the world!
