More Than a Box… The Stories of BAM! (Part 3)

It’s week 3 of our More Than a Box ongoing series, and this week we’re sharing the story of Jeremiah and his experience with BAM!.

Nothing brings us more joy than to see the community that has built up around the BAM! Box, and to see how you all are able to impact one another’s lives.

It’s truly awe-inspiring!

So, without further ado, here’s what Jeremiah wrote in to share!

I’m constantly waging a war with depression since I lost my mother to cancer back in 2012.

It was a month before my wife and I were meant to get married, and it was devastating.

I went through a lot of different phases, but my love for Pop Culture stood strong amongst them all. Mentally it helped me cope, find ways not to look at life as something half empty, but most importantly see how wonderful life is with my wife who I loved dearly.

BAM! came into my life in the form of a gift from my wife as I was dealing with heavy blows of depression.

Collecting autographs and getting everything in the boxes helps me fight it daily. Interacting with the community and the friends I’ve gained there has really helped in words I can’t even describe.

BAM! has really changed my life and my outlook on life has grown even more positive.

Thank you BAM! For not only helping me in such a positive way, but bringing some amazing people into my life!

– Jeremiah B.

Thank you Jeremiah for sharing, and for showing us once again that it’s always about people!

If you have a story regarding the community of BAM! and how it has impacted you, we’d love to know!

More Than a Box… The Stories of BAM! (Part 1)

We’re starting a new series here at BAM!.

Lately, we’ve been going back to basics and reaching deep by asking ourselves…

“What is this all about?”

“What makes BAM! different?”

“Why do we do this?”

And the truth is that, here at BAM!, we are fans. Pure and simple.

We’re fans that refused to let that die, all while making it possible to keep that passion alive for everyone we could.

The result has been amazing. Not only have we been able to keep growing despite all odds, we’ve found that the BAM! community is one of the best in the world!

It’s a community where people have found belonging, reignited passion, and even LOVE.

And THAT means the world to us.

So we decided to start sharing stories. YOUR stories.

Stories of success.

Stories of redemption.

Stories of love.

And stories of pure fandom.

We asked for your stories and the result has been ASTOUNDING.

Today we’re privileged to share the first one. This is from James B.*

“I have been with BAM! since the beginning.

I’m disabled and suffer from major depression and trauma disorders.

This box has brought a lot of joy into my life when it is difficult to find any. It was my honor to personal meet @Adam McArthur at Salt Lake Comic Con a few years ago.

I had been impressed by BAM! before meeting Adam. I talked to him about my story and my experience with BAM! Adam was completely interested and I had his full attention. His commitment for his customers and passion for BAM! was palpable.

After meeting Adam I was sold. I was all in and I have not regretted it. Every box I get I remember my personal exchange with Adam in Salt Lake and I feel his energy and genuine compassion.

I know I’ve gotten a box from a friend that truly cares.

There are days I want to just give up and surrender. It’s those days when I turn to the BAM! Community page.

This company is something I’m very passionate about and I have great love for BAM! The community gets me excited for my next box and gives me reason to keep fighting.

This community and BAM! Box has saved my life.

– James B
