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 unusual (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 money-like items such as gift cards, or for monetary donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as stamps, pop can tabs, etc., but you may not solicit funding. This includes donations for '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 to protect your privacy, 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 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.

My wish list:

A visit from my husband.  I haven't seen him since early November.  I'm not asking for anyone to pay for the trip, just put out good vibes that it will work, he had to cancel leave b/c of college, and will reschedule.  Prayer, asking the universe, whatever.  I just need him and miss him TERRIBLY.

The school district where I teach, in a low socio-economic area,  is having a Prom Gown Give Away Event.  We want all of our students, regardless of income, to be able to participate and enjoy this special night.  These are the items we are collecting by the beginning of April so our students can come "shopping" (for free) before the prom:

-Old prom gowns or cocktail dresses or bridesmaid dresses
-Gently used dressy shoes
-tuxedos or suits or men's dress shirts
-ties or bow ties
-new pantyhose
-dressy handbags/clutches/wristlets

Anything that you think can be used for this event will be appreciated. 
Thanks for looking.

heart Happy February heart

My wishes this month are:

- Anything related to Disney's Snow White 

- Any beads/gems that look like rhinestones or have lots of sparkle to them 

- A heart shaped brooch (perfectly fine it's tarnished and/or needs a little love and care as jewelry repair is a hobby of mine)

- This is my longshot wish. I know that some people have vintage (1940s, 1950s) magazines that they no longer want and I would be very happy to give them a new home. Doesn't matter if they are craft, fashion, etc - I just love anything from those dedcades!

-- Anything wearable (or that can craftily be made wearable!) with trees, leaves, vines, acorns, or other plantish themes.  Especially jewelry, scarves, beads, buttons, etc.

-- Yarn in any version of green you want to pass along -- any amount is welcome.

-- Piercing stud earrings (the hypoallergenic ones with the backs that click into place), pairs or single, or extra backs that go with them.

-- Bluejay or spider things

(Please nothing new, just things you're looking to pass along or happen upon super cheap at a thrift store, etc.)

Thanks for looking!

Sorry I haven't been online much the last few months... I got really sick mid December and spent a week and a half in the hospital over Christmas.  None of my family visited me at all (except for my amazing hubby) not even a card/flower/anything :(. It was a very depressing Christmas. I still don't have much energy & sleep non stop. But I am determined to get back to sending out some wishes to make others smile <3.  Anyway... enough of my whining...

If you have anything with cat images that you'd like to rehome like old notes or Halloween decorations (Small), I would love to use them in a montage I am working on. I found magazine pictures don't seem to work too well - or stickers either.

Thanks for considering my request. laugh

Happy February!

This month I'd be very grateful for:

- Any Crockpot recipes that you've tried & loved

- A German Chocolate Cake recipe (from scratch, not box :-) that you've tried & loved.  With a couple of special upcoming birthdays I want to try to make this family favorite from scratch :-)

- Any old classic movies or sitcoms on dvd, or any comedies or romantic comedies from any era on dvd

- And as usual, anything Tiki for my little Tiki reading room - even the littlest thing has a place in the Tiki room!

Thanks so much to everyone who participates in the RAOK.

any coke codes would be welcome.

any good vibes sent to my mom would be welcome. she's having a hard time recovering from her open heart surgery. she's home, but depressed (which is fairly normal) and still in some pain. for pain she's taking percoset which has coedine in it which makes us both nauseous. so, she's pretty down. 

does anyone know of any heart surgery message boards?

thank you.

Thank you in advance for anything that you send because I can always use some happy mail

  1. Address Labels (I'm not picky about the design as long as its not nasty or demonic).... these are desperately needed since I send out alot of mail
  2. Reusable shopping bags
  3. Funny magnets and Magnets from Different states/countries
  4. K-Cups -flavored coffees (nothing BOLD) or tea, soup or hot chocolate (No green tea, carrot licorice, banana or apple flavors)
  5. Stickers especially 3D ones
  6. Coke Rewards and Pamper Points

My daughter Gabriella is 4 and she likes:

  1. Anything with Nick Jr and Disney Jr characters
  2. Baby Dolls and Barbie Dolls and could especially use clothes and other accessories
  3. Anything involving potty training including pull-ups if you have any that you don't need anymore size 5T or overnight pull-ups to fit a 40lb child
  4. She wears uniform for school and uniforms can be really expensive and get stained way too easily. So if you have size 6/6X yellow tops and navy blue bottoms and cardigans that you can pass on they would be very appreciated. Also hair accessories especially in yellow and/or blue

I just added this to my post above, but on the chance someone has already passed that, I added anything The Little Prince (the little French blond aviator boy character) for my mom. He's her favorite. Thanks!
