This is where we post our wishes - maybe things we collect, something we can no longer find in our area, things we have always wanted etc, etc. No wish is too big (though common sense is appreciated!); you never know what will turn up.

We must all abide by these PBS rules :
You may not wish for money, or monetary donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as stamps,  pop can tabs, etc., but not for money. This includes 'gofundme' and other fund-raising events.
No buying or selling or advertising. No spam posts.
No wishing for credits.  Credits are bought, sold and loaned only in the Book Bazaar forum, or use the PBS Kiosk to purchase.
Do NOT ask for books, since books are swapped on the site and book deals are made in the Book Bazaar. Sorry, but you may not ask for free books of any kind. (Unpostable books are given away in the damaged book thread of the Bazaar and sometimes in the RAOK thread.  There is also a Damaged/Unpostable Virtual Box in the Games forum.)

Our own RAOK rules: 
Please do not offer payment for the things you are sent, including postage. RAOKs are given freely, asking nothing in return except a thank you. You could pay it forward by granting a wish yourself.
Please limit your wishes to no more than 10. Lists could get very long. You can always edit as you go along.
Unlike many other forums, we ask that you do NOT reply within the threads. We do everything by PMs between members. This keeps the threads clutter-free and easy to use. When you come to this I Wish thread, you see wishes. In the RAOK thread, it's all about things we are giving away - simple and easy. And please do not post your address in the thread - it's all done via PM.
Please check in and answer your PMs. It's frustrating when people want to grant your wishes and don't hear from you!
PLEASE say THANK YOU to the person who grants your wish.  You may use our monthly Thank You thread, or you may acknowledge what you have received via a personal PM to the member(s) who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Check the RAOK thread before you post wishes -- the thing you want may already be there for the asking!

If you see a wish you can grant, just PM the poster for their address.

And please remember, if one of the moderators contacts you about a posting, then we are only trying to keep the forum running smoothly and according to PBS rules. If you are asked to change, move, or delete your post, please do so. Most of you know that the PBS team does get involved to edit posts, and accounts do get suspended, if rules are broken. We hate to see that happen to our fellow RAOKers!

If you have questions, feel free to contact me.

Happy April, everyone!

I am continuing my quest for marbles. They have fascinated me all my life and I just got a large glass jar that needs some bits of glass to catch the morning light in my kitchen. ♥

Thanks for reading about my odd hobby. ☺☺☺

heart Happy April! heart

My wishes are:

- Coke Codes (always helpful)

- Any toys for a 1 year old girl (she especially loves anything Doc McStuffins or Peppa Pig)

- Any DVDS of classic cartoons (Disney, Peanuts Gang, Looney Tunes)

- It might be a long shot but I love vintage clothes (1950s, 1960s) and I can wear smalls and mediums. I can also do repairs myself. So, clothing items along those lines would be very welcomed. :D

Happy April everyone! Hard to believe it is already here. I am wishing for:

1.Jewelry. The girls like using it for dress up, playing around and on occasion going out.

2.Hair products, beauty samples, etc

3.Mystery items. Kind of an odd request but I like mystery movies, magazines, books and so on. 

4.Diet Items. I am doing a diet to lose weight and appreciate coupons, meal replacement bars, etc. 

5.And one last request where I am going out on a limb here. I need the 7th season of CSI NY. If anyone happens to find a copy laying around, etc I would gladly accept it. Fulfilled thanks to a sweet friend!


Thanks in advance! You all are a special group!

My wishlist for April:

1.) plastic clothes hangers

2.) anything that a 1 year old boy, 4 year old girl, or 15 year old girl might like. (I.e. Puzzles with big pieces, refrigerator magnets, art stuff, makeup, exc,)

3.) Any national geographic magazines you are done with.

4.) picture frames.

5.) if anyone has size 5 baby diapers or pull ups (or coupons for them) that you no longer need, we could use them.

6.) outlet covers (the ones you can put over outlets that have things plugged into them - looks like a little box. Our 1 year old likes to unplug things and try to plug them back in and I'm scared he will get electrocuted).

7.) anything Owls, Native American, Irish, dolphin, or garden gnome.

8.) any organizational items.

9.) notebooks.

10.) colorful duck tape.

Long shots:

any Disney DVDs you might have and not want anymore. We had all the Disney movies on VHS but no longer have any of them.

Empty DVD/CD sleeve sheets that you put in a binder.



Thank you Michelle for the heating pad!

Happy April everyone!!! I just got out of long stay in the hospital. So, my wishes are for anything spiritually uplifting right now. I would love any Christian uplifting cd or dvds that are Christian or family type. I know its a long shot but any like the Love Comes Softly series or other kind of wholesome romance ones. I will be taking it easy for a bit. Ty for considering my wish list. :)
