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 would like to adopt any minions (or minions accessories) you have. I will give them a GREAT home. I am actually wearing minions leggings and a minions bow today, along with a minions yellow shirt. I love my minions, they make me so happy. Last month I paid it forward by sending out three RAOK Hello Kitty packages! :-)

Who was collecting shot glasses?

My wishes this month are prayers for peace to those that are hurting so much from flooding, disease and other personal issues.  It is so hard to see this devastation every day.


Thinking of you cards that can be sent to someone with Cancer.  I have trouble sending Get Well cards since this isn't the predition of the doctor.

Happy August!  Autumn is just around the corner smiley

I'd love to have anything 'Toucan bird'

Any old classic movies or sitcoms on dvd

And, as always, anything Tiki for my little Tiki reading room - even the littlest thing has a place in the Tiki room & adds to the fun decor.

Thanks to everyone who participates in the RAOK!  I appreciate your friendship most of all!

Maybe you can help???

My husband has a wound from the removal of skin cancer on his shoulder. They said it would be 6-8 weeks of dressings for the wound to heal. We have paper tape and gauze for dressing, but it is using up a lot of it and quite expensive changing it several times a day.

By chance maybe someone has dressing gauze, tape or extra large bandaids on hand that you don't need, left over from a similar incident.

Can't hurt to ask, right? Thank you, RAoK friends.

Does anyone have a Clean/Dirty magnet (or otherwise) to put on a work dishwasher?  I've looked for one but haven't found one.  I know they used to be popular.  The other day, we ran the dishwasher and before we even had a chance to put everything away, someone put a mug partially filled with chili in the top rack which dripped all over the clean dishes.  *sigh*  THANK YOU, CONNIE!!
