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, you never know what will turn up.

We must abide by PBS rules :
You may not wish for money, or monetary donations for any charities ( you may ask for things you collect for charities, like stamps, can tabs etc., but not for money)
No buying or selling or advertising.
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. You may not ask for free books of any kind sorry. (Unpostables are given away in the damaged book thread of the Bazaar and sometimes in the RAOK thread)

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. Try to pay it forward, maybe grant a wish yourself.

Please limit your wishes t0 nomore than 10. Lists get very long. You can alwasys edit as you go along.
Unlike many other forums, we ask that you do NOT reply within the threads. We do everything by PM between members. This keeps the threads clutter free and easy to use. When you go to the wishes, you see wishes. In the RAOK, it's all 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, if you post wishes, be prepared to check in and answer your PMs. It's frustrating when people want to grant your wishes and don't hear from you!

You do need to say THANK YOU. See our monthly ****thank you thread****, or you may acknowledge what you have received via a personal PM to the members who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Tips :
Check the RAOK forum before you post wishes -- things 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, 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 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.

Hello and Happy February!

It's good to see Jeanne has thoughtfully stepped in to moderate for Irene. Thanks, Jeanne!

I am always on the lookout for small rocks and minerals that are unusual in some way and I can always use small note pads or sticky notes

Thanks! heart

Sheeplady wishes for Feb (and always!) -

           Stationery - I don't need note cards at the moment, but will always take any writing paper you come up with - loose sheets, tablets, pkts. boxes - I'll take any and all and it will be used and appreciated. (and thanks  to Lori for her post and offer!)

            I will take note cards with sheep or St Bernards on them, or any sheep stickers etc.

            Always love pens too - fat pens, skinny pens, ad pens, in blue or black ink - use them all.

Thanks for looking, and for participating in our RAOK threads.
