Inspiring people to practice kindness and pass it on to others

You never know when someone else needs to be uplifted. Most of us have been in a situation where we felt unappreciated, or maybe felt like no one cared about us.
You can make someone feel special or appreciated by doing something spontaneous for them, like baking them a cake! You don't need to wait for a special occasion, just bake a cake and deliver it to a friend.
When you go out of your way for someone, you’ll be making that person feel extra-special. And baking a cake is an easy and fun surprise to show someone you care about them or appreciate them!
Make a list of your coworkers’ birthdays and surprise each one of them with a cake every time a birthday comes around. Keep in mind that if you do this for one coworker’s birthday, you should be consistent and do it for all the other birthdays in your office, so as not to leave anyone out. You'll be suprised at how many people haven't had someone make them a birthday cake in years.
Bake a cake and deliver it to a friend who is feeling down and needs a smile. Write an uplifting quote on the cake to show your friend how much he or she means to you.
What a great website! I think Bake Someone a Cake is a splendid initiative. Baking or cooking for someone who may be a little needy, surely does epitomize many of the qualities of kindness. I was never a great baker, however, when cooking dinners for my family, I frequently make extra, and either freeze these dinners to pass on, or give them away immediately. I got into this habit when caring for my elderly mother who could no longer cook.
