|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 put the word TAKEN in another color by that item, 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 have a tiny hardcover Cathy gift book (popular ages ago when, you know, card shops and stuff were popular haha). It's for a mom to give to a daughter. Perfect condition except I took out the first/flyleaf page where there was an inscription. Cute little attached ribbon holds your place.
Here is what I am offering:
1. I can make 2 people a special "emoji" bookmark/magnet. I don't have all emojis,so make sure to give two choices and two favorite colors.
2. I can make 1 person a unique "secret life of pets" magnet or bookmark.
3. I can make 2 people a "Paw Patrol" magnet/bookmark one for a boy
4. I have one small iron on/sew on applique football.
5. I can make 2 people a football magnet or bookmark-like for instance I can make one patriots and one falcons.
6. I have one new 2017 pocket planner that has birds on it.
7. I have one set of adult coloring pages that are all cats-to someone who hasn't got pages from me before.
Please make sure your address is in your pm. I will send items when I can due to work schedule.:) Have a good day!

Argh, I'm not sure where to post this, what thread... if a mod lets me know to delete, I will, as soon as I'm back online (at least every day, if not more). It's my first big send out of RAOKs, so I wanted to alert the following folks to look out for mail by end of week:
And Diane R: Yours is still in the assembly process :-)
Even though this is one of my brokest months yet, this has been SO fun. I am already putting things aside to list for next month. Hope you all get some happy mail soon :-)
~ Heather and Solo the Cat
