Welcome to the RAOK wishes thread - more fun to be had in the RAOK!

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 here.

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.
          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.
    You do need to say THANK YOU.   See our monthly  *****thank you thread****, or you may acknowledge what you have received via 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 - they 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.   We hate to see that happen to our fellow RAOKers!


Please feel free to PM with any questions

This is a long shot but.....    I would like to learn how to make fly masks for horses and ponies at the horse rescue down the road.  I think it would be easier if I had some kind of halter to help me make these; the horse wears it to keep the flies out of the eyes.  Does anyone have an old halter I could have? 

Does anyone have a pattern for sewing a horse blanket/rug?  Or, any "pet" patterns!

I'm always wishing for:

Coke codes
Anything "owl". I just love owls!

 I'd also like one of those cat toys that's like a mouse that works on batteries and has little wheels and runs around on the floor for the cat to chase. I can't seem to find one locally..

I can never get enough bookmarks, either! winkAnd I love stickers to put on my envelopes and packages. 

Blank notecards w/ envelopes would be appreciated, too. Or thank you cards. With my cancer, people often send us a bit of money or send me a treat of some kind. I like to send them a thank you card, since I don't usually talk to them in person when they send something.

I would love to have the following:


-  Labels for education/box tops for education for my grandson's school


-  Purina and Friskies cat food coupons


-  Tidy Cat litter coupons


-  Refrigerator magnets (do not have to be new)


This is a long shot, but I would absolutely love to have anything (doesn't have to be new) that has Pittsburgh Steelers on it.  It is hard for me to find Steelers' things as I live in a rural area out in the boondocks!!

Thank you.
