|Page: Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
Welcome to the Random Acts of Kindness thread, also known as the RAOK place. This is where we post things to give away to others, asking NOTHING in return but a thank you. No money or credits are exchanged. We give freely, at our own expense. If you see something you’d like, PM the member with your mailing info. Please be sure to put full postage on any packages you mail out. Members have reported receiving "gifts" with postage due.
Please note that we must abide by PBS rules - NO buying, selling or advertising allowed.
For liability reasons, sorry, but no medications of any kind may be posted in this forum. This includes prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and supplements.

RAOK Tips -
Before you post something to give away, check the ***I Wish*** thread --- someone may already be asking for it!
If you mark "taken" by your items that have been asked for, please do so at the beginning of the line and if possible, put the word TAKEN in another color so it's easily apparent to our members that something is no longer available. This avoids disappointments and keeps you from getting more requests for an item that has already been claimed. Or, just edit your post to delete that item.
If one of us contacts you about changing your post, please understand that we have to follow PBS rules and guidelines. Often we have to ask someone to change or delete a post because of that. New things come up here all the time. If something is not appropriate, we will tell you so, and ask you to change it. Remember that the PBS team does oversee the forums. They edit posts and have been known to suspend accounts. We hate to have that happen to our fellow RAOKers when we can take care of problems ourselves.
RAOK reminders for people requesting something that is offered here
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to PM me and ask. We are always happy to be of help to members of the RAOK forum, new or old. Thanks for participating in this great part of PBS! Enjoy!

The Prisoner of Zenda (have two copies and need only one)
Thought I would share this so others might do it as well: A Caribbean Mystery by Agatha Christie - donated to library when I found it in a thrift store as the copy sent to me to read was really battered.

Today I'd like to pay it forward by gifting this already started embroidered and hand pieced wall hanging. I am a quilt maker, but I don't hand piece. Everything I do is by machine. A close friend of mine gave this to me to finish (her arthritis in her hands are keeping her from hand piecing any longer). If you like to quilt and would like to receive this, please PM me with your mailing address and I will happily send it right out to you.
Have a beautiful Easter weekend friends! ******TAKEN******
