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 can be suspended if rules are broken. We hate to see that happen to our fellow RAOKers!

If you have questions, feel free to contact me.

Happy December! Wishing all who celebrate warm and wonderful holidays. heart

My wishes this month are:

~ Any toys for an almost 2 year-old girl 

~ Anything related to "American Horror Story" or "The Walking Dead"

~ Anything Snoopy

~ This one is probably a long shot but I'm going to take a chance. I would love a women's size small or medium button up cardigan sweater to wear over another top when it's a tad chilly but not full on "crank up every heater!" temp. Haha. A neutral color would be especially nice, like black, white, grey, ect. But I can work with any!


Thank you for reading!

My daughters request: A My little Pony 2016 calendar. If anyone comes across one, she would love it. Ill wrap it up and hand it to her on Christmas if you can find it.

My wishes for December are:

  • magnetic refrigerator grocery list pads--the long thin ones, with lines preferred--any design is OK
  • magnetic year-at-a-glance 2016 calendar--I use these a lot at work and it's very handy to have them on my desk drawer. A lot of companies used to use these as promo items with their business name on them, but no one around here gives them out anymore.
