|Check out the photos below of our Boom Boom! Cards packing party (YES, we packed these kits by hand!).|
Who Are You?We are a group of people who are who are impassioned to change the world. We had an idea, we thought we’d try it. It’s that simple.
To the left is a picture of where it all started; we call it the Boom Boom! Room.
We are excited to introduce our newest product, Boom Boom! Cards, the world’s first ever Kit For A Social Revolution. 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 join us and play along? The worst that could happen is we add a little bit more Boom Boom! to the world. See below for more on that.
This won’t be all you’ll hear from us, there’s much more to come, including a format for donating to charitable causes through your use of the cards. But, just yet, we aren’t sure how that will work. Check back often for our progress on how Boom Boom! will give back.
We’ve got big, big plans, so stay tuned.
Why Boom Boom!? What’s it mean?
Like the boomerang, we believe that 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 that karmic notion? By saying, “Boom Boom”. You put it out…it comes back.
So, for a reason none of us can remember, we started saying, “Boom Boom”. And it just stuck. It’s sort of catchy.
And, 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. Some of us have even been rumored to answer the phone with a hearty, “Boom Boom!”
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? 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 here. To this website 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. We will be right there beside you on the front line of generating social change by developing and promoting only positive products that endorse treating each other well, creating community and filling the world with more "Boom Boom!" Thanks for joining the cause.
