 This is where we post what we have to give away

For our purposes, a Random Act of Kindness (to be referred to as a RAOK) is defined as something nice one PBS member does for another PBS member with NO CREDITS changing hands!  The  idea  is for people to post  items they are willing to send another member FREE of charge or credits (including shipping). This is a great way to make someone's day at the same time that you can declutter your house of things you no longer need/use but weren't  sure you wanted to discard.  NOTE:  Some of us don't remember every member's nickname, so it is helpful to write that by your address label, when you send a RAOK, to make it easier for receiving members to thank you.

The  way to do this,  is to list items to this thread that you are willing to send as RAOKs the way we list damaged books/ARCs/etc. in the Book Bazaar, and make them first come, first serve. When an item has been spoken for, please cross it off or delete it from your post. You might want to show who got it but that's up to you. Just  make sure you update as frequently as possible so that no one is disappointed. Please everyone just use one post each and keep it updated.     NOTE:  Before posting a ROAK, please check this month's *** I Wish thread to see if you are able to fill a members' Wish, first.  This is especially true for Coke codes, boxtops for education, etc.

If you see something you'd like,  PM the member with your address.  To post things you are wishing for, see the *** Monthly I WIsh thread.***  And to keep these threads clean and easy to read, please use the ***Monthly Thank you thread*** to thank people for things you have received.  Always let the members know, either in a PM or Thank You that you rec'd the item so they know it's not lost.

Obviously since RAOKs are free but cost the sender shipping, if you request a RAOK from someone and they aren't able to ship it for a while, please be patient!  Please mark out items as they are taken so other members are not disappointed 

  If you have questions, please feel free to PM me and ask. We are happy to help our RAOKer friends, old and new!

Here are the items I can send out this month:

Clearing out some more Comic*Con 2010 swag items, I found these large postcards that might as well be mini posters. They are 7in high and 5in wide. They display the covers of a few titles that, at the time of Comic*Con, were newly released. The postcards depict the following books:

Guardian of the Gate by Michelle Zink

Ghostgirl: Lovesick by Tonya Hurley

The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

Thirteen Days to Midnight by Patrick Carman


I have samplers from Comic*Con 2010. If you don't know, a sampler is a small booklet that has sample chapters from soon-to-be-released books (though, by now, I think these have all been released). Handy if you want to read a chapter and see if it's worth the money/credits.

- Dust by Joan Frances Turner

- The Ranger's Apprentice by John Flanagan

- Collection sampler: Crossing Over by Anna Kendall, Eon by Alison Goodman, The Foundling's Tale Part One by D.M. Cornish, The Painted Boy by Charles deLint, Pegasus by Robin McKinley, Incarceron by Catherine Fisher

- Collection sampler: Star Wars The Clone Wars, Batman the Brave and the Bold, Chaotic, Tiny Titans (2 copies of this sampler)

- Marvel Comics Sneak Peek issue from December


I have a DVD sampler of sequel books from Comic*Con. It features excerpts, meet the author, audio exceprts, book trailers: The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan, Rebel Angels by Libba Bray, Kisses and Lies by Lauren Henderson, Nobody's Prize by Esther Friesner, Frogs & French Kisses by Sarah Mlynowski, and Bloodhound by Hamora Pierce


Misc. Comic*Con 2010 Swag:

'Drive Angry' (a recent action film) keychains



A stress ball that looks like a basketball


 PM me with your requests!  :)

(IMPORTANT NOTE: To anyone requesting items from me, I am swamped in school work as I come down to the end of my thesis, plus a bunch of other papers due by the end of the semester. So I beg your paitence if it takes me some time to mail out your item. If it requires a certain rush [like a birthday gift or something like that] please let me know if your PM and I'll do my best to make a trip to the mailroom, though I can make no promises. Thanks for understanding!)

I have some nylons with runs / holes in them which could be used to tie plants to stakes in the garden.  The nylons have been through the laundry, and to keep them out of my dresser, when I discover the holes / runs, I cut the whole side open.

PM me if you would like them.  I mail only on Fridays and Saturdays.

I have a movie theatre gift card for Regal Entertainment Group. You can go to www.regmovies.com to put in your zip code to check for participating theatres around you. I've had this gift card for quite a while, but we never go to the movies. I would like someone else to have it to possible brighten their day. Please PM if you want it. First PM will get it. smiley

Taken, thanks!

Lots of PBS members were very kind to me once, so I'm trying to pay forward the favor.

I have a prayer card of Saint Gianna Beretta Molla that has been blessed and I have touched it with her relic (her gloves).

If you would like to know more about the saint, here is a link http://www.saintgianna.org/main.htm

** I am Catholic and I was moved by Saint Gianna Beretta's story. I believe she had 6 children. She died giving birth to her 6th child. She knew their was complications and she chose saving her child's life over her own.


If you would like this, please PM me.

Thanks so much! :)
