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.– Jeremiah B.
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!
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!
