Ideas

Here are some ideas to get you started 

Remember, it's up to you whether you want to give the card directly to the person whilst doing the RAoB or whether you leave it behind or give it to a cashier/other person to pass on. 

If you have other RAoB ideas you'd like to share, let us know and we will add them to the list!
