A-Z Challenge: Random Acts of Kindness beginning with "B"

Throughout the A-Z Challenge I'll be blogging through the alphabet using each letter to create a list of Random Acts of Kindness. I've been collecting RAK ideas for some time now as I gear up to the 2016 launch of a project dear to my heart: B(e) Kind 366. I'll be performing an act of kindness every day of the leap year starting January 1st, 2016 while raising funds for World University Service of Canada (WUSC), an organisation that changed my life.

I'm starting each post with a synonym (of sorts) for kindness. I added this part to my posts because of an amazing movement I am a part of 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion. We link up monthly and blog about changing the world for the better. It's magical really. We're even on Twitter! @1000Speak

B is for Beauty and B(e) Kind and Brandy (that's ME)

Bake - and share! Contribute to a bake sale. Try a new recipe!
Big Brothers Big Sisters - be one!
Birds - make feeders and/or supply boxes for nests.
Blog - to promote a cause or just to say something kind. Visit other blogs and leave kind comments.
Bookmarks - make some, leave some in bookstore or library books for someone to find.
Books - about kindness.
Breakfast - eat a healthy one, leave a breakfast pack for a stranger.
Bride and Beyond - visit the blog and support this incredible project!
Bubble Wrap - pop it yourself, make "Instant Stress Relief" signs with it.
Bubbles - blow them for fun, for children at a park or playground, take them one step further and make massive ones!
Bus - take one instead of driving, leave the amount for a fare on the seat.
Butterfly pin - make some and leave them for someone to find!
Buy - local, something to support a fundraiser. 

That brings me to the end of my B-list! I've included a few links to some of these ideas, most of which I find on Pinterest, but if you are especially interested in any of them, please do let me know and I am more than willing to provide additional information!

Please help me build my list of Random Acts of Kindness by leaving suggestions in the comments!
