This is where we post what we have to give away at no cost or obligation to the person receiving..... Please do not offer to pay the person sending the RAOK. That defeats the purpose of the RAOK. Pay it forward!

For our purposes, a Random Act of Kindness (to be referred to as a RAOK) is defined as something nice one PBS member does for another PBS member with no credits or money changing hands! The idea is for people to post items they are willing to send another member FREE of charge or credits (including shipping). This is a great way to make someone's day at the same time that you can declutter your house of things you no longer need/use but weren't sure you wanted to discard. NOTE: Some of us don't remember every member's nickname, so it is helpful to write that by your address label, when you send a RAOK, to make it easier for receiving members to thank you. Please REMEMBER to thank members as some items do get lost in mail and we want to know that our USPS is doing their job!

The way to do this, is to list items to this thread that you are willing to send as RAOKs the way we list damaged books/ARCs/etc. in the Book Bazaar, and make them first come, first serve. When an item has been spoken for, please cross it off or delete it from your post. You might want to show who got it but that's up to you. Just make sure you update as frequently as possible so that no one is disappointed. Please everyone just use one post each and keep it updated. NOTE: Before posting a ROAK, please check this month's *** I Wish thread to see if you are able to fill a members' Wish, first. This is especially true for Coke codes, boxtops for education, etc.

If you see something you'd like, PM the member with your address. To post things you are wishing for, see the *** Monthly I WIsh thread.*** And to keep these threads clean and easy to read, please use the ***Monthly Thank you thread*** to thank people for things you have received. Always let the members know, either in a PM or Thank You that you rec'd the item so they know it's not lost.

Obviously since RAOKs are free but cost the sender shipping, if you request a RAOK from someone and they aren't able to ship it for a while, please be patient! Please mark out items as they are taken so other members are not disappointed

If you have questions, please feel free to PM me and ask. We are happy to help our RAOKer friends, old and new!

Hi All,

  The Sheeplady has not even been reading the RAOK - how sad is that??  But I have lots to give away, so stay tuned.


1) 2 very nice wedding shower cards. Take one or both. PM and I can give you the details on these.  

2) Also one small bridal shower gift card

3) 2 tiny, blank thank you notes - too small for the mail - gold lettering, very simple and pretty

Added 12/30-

4) A white Faded Glory long sleeve  top, stretch T, v-neck, size 18W - not new, but in good shape

5) a tiny gold chain bracelet, only 7 1/2 " long, with pearl and blue beads

6) any wild turkey hunters out there? I have several VHS tapes of turkey calling.  If interested let me know and I'll tell you what I have. Or if you just want all, say so!

7) a pair of sheep salt & peppers. These are from the $ store and people keep giving them to me - I have had several sets!

Added 12/31 -

8) I have a box of 20 decaf Constant Comment tea bags.  I love it, but it gives me a headache.  Would like to give 4 each to 5 people, or 5 to 4, depending on how many want it.

Each week our pastor posts a letter on the first inside page of our church bulletin.  This week he focused on things to do for Advent and one of them was to do random acts of Kindnes!

I have a Sudoko book (ISBN 9781559935937).  5 of the puzzles have already been done.  Wasn't someone collecting these for soldiers?

I have a couple of coupons that might be of interest for the holidays:

WINE:  $100 off a case/12 (normal $169) from Laithwaites Wines with either a deluxe corkscrew set or 3 bonus bottles of Malbec.  PM me for code to website or phone use.

HOLIDAY PHOTO CARDS:  20 for $1.99 from Vistaprint...code is lights11  (I'm pretty sure you can find others online, if you are looking for other printing needs)

Have a happy one!
