|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 variety of things to give away this month. Please send me your address when you request things to be sent to you. (I LOVE Renee D.'s idea above.) Please try not to request more than one thing from the list but if you have a second wish, you can list it in the PM. If no one else asks for the item, then I will gladly send more than one to you.
Finished for January, will post more in February.

Was hoping to have my act together before now, but going to go ahead and post what I have at the moment. There may be more later in the month as I work on some organizing.
1. CD: Gourd Shack by the Richmond Indigenous Gourd Orchestra. This is a fun listen. It's an entire CD of songs all played on instruments made of gourds. Kind of scratched, but as I recall, it plays okay.

I have an ink kit available. Similar to this on Amazon, but older & 3 color (C-M-Y) archival UV resistant. Box Part#91300 2005 Best if used within 3 years of purchase.
Never been opened, but can't say if it'll still work or on what printer. Probably best if you've used them before. Includes Tutorial CD & Colorfast Paper (guessing in the 5x7" range).
I have a little "Cathy" book for a mom to give to a daughter. One of those little hardcover gift book thingies. Tiny. Please only request if you would like to give it to your daughter. Please INCLUDE your address in the PM. I will delete this when it's been taken, so if it's here, it's available. :-)
Flat magnet of Laughing Cow
Cpn for Grizzly tobacco 2 for $2
