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.

I am looking for anything to do with COLLEGES.  Examples: pennants, pins, t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, brochures, etc.

They don't need to be in perfect condition.  Our elementary school is having a "college readiness" week in which we are trying to promote the idea of having goals for the future.  I teach in a low socioeconomic district and many of our students have never heard of college.  Our unit after that will be focusing on careers. 

Thank you in advance!

I wish for doll clothes or preemie sized sleepers/onesies. The kids in my classroom love to play with dolls, but each is only in a T-shirt.

Nothing wished for that you can send due to my travels this month, but just wish us a safe trip as we leave for 2 weeks in western England and Wales after picking up my baby, Megan, who will turn 20 on 3 May.  We are spending her birthday doing what she wants in London........which so far includes brunch, matinee show at the Globe Theater of her fave Shakespeare show, "A Midsummer Night's Dream", and dinner.

I would love to share any perfume samples anyone might have to send on, as well as old glitzy jeweled pins. Missing stones are not a problem in the least.

Thanks so much!
