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.

On my wish list, it includes:

1) pretty stationary with matching envelopes-RECIEVED, THANK YOU

2) a book of stamps ( if that's allowed to be asked for)

3) herbal teas ( berry flavors are my favorite)- RECIEVED, THANK YOU

4) moisturizing lotion for very dry skin- RECIEVED, THANK YOU


Thanks to all that grant my wishes.

August, back to school month.

Ive been having some difficulties. Hoping someone might have some extra pencils, pens, colored pencils, erasers, any loose leaf paper, notebooks laying around, not being used that you could throw my daughters way. Even if pencils are used,  she can use them :)       Thank you to everyone who fulfilled this wish for us!

Thanks so much guys for looking!

Long Shot::

Any large size shirt in Juniors"teen" or a small to a medium in Womens that my daughter of 11 might wear.  She cant wear anything in the kids section. She wears teenage stuff now already. This would really help and thanks a bunch! Anything you have laying around in these sizes would be so great.

Any jeans or pants in a size 5 or 7 in juniors would help tremendously. Used is fine.

Happy August!

My wishes this month are:

heart Any toys for a 1 year-old girl. She is very into Mickey & Minnie Mouse right now.

heart Any Disney animated DVDs (especially the classics). These are only released so often by Disney and so the DVDs are quite expensive.

heart This is probably quite a long shot but I thought I'd ask. I own a vintage mirror compact and would love any others, especially those from the 50s or earlier, to begin a collection with. Any condition is fine and will be welcomed with open arms.

Thank you for reading. smiley

Need prayers for my mom, Grace, again........she has a recurrence of melanoma on same arm where a spot was removed earlier this year. 

Daughter Anastasia is due with second baby this Sunday but is showing no signs of the baby being ready to deliver. She is really tired with a 16 month old to care for (hence why I've been with them for a couple weeks already).
