AOK Thursday: Boom Boom!

We’ve talked several times about acts of kindness never being random. Instead, they are intentional; you make a decision to be kind. As such, being kind can then be taught, right? Like to our children?

Yes, definitely. In fact, Boom Boom! Cards’ Family Deck just won the 2010 Brilliance Award in the Responsible Toy of the Year category. What is the Family Deck?

Boom Boom! Cards brings your family together to perform 26 acts of kindness. Once you’ve done a card, put a Boom Boom! sticker on the Command Central Activity Board to indicate that you’ve done it, post the story of what happened on the website, then pass the card on for someone else to do. Each card’s unique ID enables your family to follow the cards you do on the website’s map and see where they end up! Included discussion cards inspire conversation about the whole experience with your children. Teach the values of compassion, kindness and community and have fun doing it!

Awesome, right?  I love the company tagline: “the intentional acts of kindness kit”. Other great copy: “the uprising of  guerilla goodness”. Learn more and pick up a deck for your family at
