|Page: Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
Welcome to the Random Acts of Kindness thread, also known as the RAOK place. This is where we post things to give away to others, asking NOTHING in return but a thank you. No money or credits are exchanged. We give freely, at our own expense. If you see something you’d like, PM the member with your mailing info. If you are the one mailing, please be sure to put full postage on any packages you send. Members have reported receiving "gifts" with postage due.
Please note that we must abide by PBS rules - NO buying, selling or advertising allowed.
For liability reasons, sorry, but no medications of any kind may be posted in this forum. This includes prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and supplements.

RAOK Tips -
Before you post something to give away, check the ***I Wish*** thread --- someone may already be asking for it!
If you mark "taken" by your items that have been asked for, please do so at the beginning of the line and, if possible, put the word TAKEN in another color so it's easily apparent to our members that something is no longer available. This avoids disappointments and keeps you from getting more requests for an item that has already been claimed. Or, just edit your post to delete that item.
If one of us contacts you about changing your post, please understand that we have to follow PBS rules and guidelines. Often we have to ask someone to change or delete a post because of that. New things come up here all the time. If something is not appropriate, we will tell you so, and ask you to change it. Remember that the PBS team does oversee the forums. They edit posts and have been known to suspend accounts. We hate to have that happen to our fellow RAOKers when we can take care of problems ourselves.
RAOK reminders for people requesting something that is offered here -
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to PM me and ask. We are always happy to be of help to members of the RAOK forum, new or old. Thanks for participating in this great part of PBS! Enjoy!

I still have a 2016 American calender from State Farm. Some nice pictures. It is about 11 x 10 inches.
I can send 5 people(for now) a book from my shelf. Just pm the title and your address.
Wow! I haven't been over here in awhile! Way overloaded lately! :P
But I'm back again to offer more envelopes for mailing! PLEASE NOTE! These are USED. I remove and/or black out the labels and reuse them. But... (and I kid you not!) these suckers breed like bunnies! TT-TT
Please feel free to request a box of them at your peril! ;)
-1 box of assorted envelopes for reuse. (all sizes and types;plastic, manila with and without bubble lining, different sizes, etc)
If you've requested before and you've run out... Feel free to request again! ;)
If there' s more than one person interested and you don't mind waiting, like I said, they accumulate fast, so I'd be happy to hold your address and send to those in the order requested!
Here's what I have so far:
2. I have three coupons for Buy one get one free candles at Yankee Candle-all to one person and they expire Feb.21.
4. Will make 2 people a handmade bookmark if you haven't got one from me before.
5. Will make 1 person a handmade magnet if you haven't got one from me as well.
I may offer more stuff if I find time to clean...going to focus on granting wishes when I can this month. :)

Happy February everyone :) From my January post: I would love to honor my Grandma whose initials are DHL (Grandma is with Grandpa and Jesus♥ in Heaven) by gifting to someone on here, a book tote bag that my Grandma loved. I have had it in my closet for too long and it's just neither honoring Grandma nor serving God in anyway sitting there. For this New Year, it would mean a lot to me to give this bag a new home and life being used. Please PM me if your (or someone you know who loves to read) initials are DHL and yes in that order only please. I normally do not (or care to) put conditions on RAOK's but I pray all of you understand this is special. Thank you and God Bless You!
I just remembered no one had asked for the bag last month so am offering it once more this month. :) I would still love to spread cheer and my Grandma's love of books (she would have loved PBS) by sharing her bag with another. If no one wishes for it this month, I will ask around at church, but wanted to ask once more on here first :)
