|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. If you are the one mailing, please be sure to put full postage on any packages you send. 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!
I'm leaving PBS. Look for me on Mona's Random Acts of Kindness threads in Goodreads.com. I'll be doing address labels over there.
If you need address labels send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to put labels in subject line so I know it's not spam.

i have some paper/pencil puzzle books that need to leave my house. These are unpostable either because they are a dell monthly and contain advertising, or because some of the puzzles have been worked. The rest of the puzzles are fine so I can't bring myself to throw them out, but I'll never get to them so if you wouldn't mind getting a sudoku book with many of the problems already worked, let me know! I'll post more details about them if there is interest.
1) TAKEN ... Isbn is 9781577483564 but unpostable because there is some water damage to the first few pages and about 8 of the puzzles are completed.
More coming as I sort through stuff...

This stuff has got to go but I can't just throw it away! So if you think it would be a kindness from me to you tif I send it to you, please know that it is also a kindness from you to me to help me have a peaceful, uncluttered space in my craft area!
Current list of stuff I can mail
2) more coming as I keep clearing out.

Since i had/still have plantar fasciitis I can no longer wear my beloved Birkenstocks.
I have two lightly worn pairs:
Gizeh thong sandal, yellow with little purple flowers, Size 37 or US Size 6.5 or 7 -TAKEN
These are not the softbed Birkies, but the regular type and therefore not for somebody who needs a soft shoe. They are not soft but rather hard, but excellent arch support.

I'm sorry but when someone does a random act of kindness stipulations should not be placed upon it. Otherwise it risks being seen as prejudiced in my opinion. But that's just my opinion.
My apologies for being away from the thread for more than 24 hours. With regard to offers of free credits here, there have been discussions in the past about whether that was appropriate for RAOK, and a decision was made that such offers should be posted in the Book Bazaar. I have contacted the OP and asked that the offer be moved.
I offered a free credit earlier but I had no stipulations on mine. Not sure if Sophie was referring to my offer? Mine was taken fast and first come, first served. I'm sorry I missed the information about not posting that offer here but doing so on the Bazaar forum. I will do that next time. I really appreciate the RAOK forum and want to abide by the rules.

Asking for acknowledgement is not only not too much, it's part of the rules in the first post:
