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 (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 monetary donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as stamps, pop can tabs, etc., but not for money. This includes '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 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 can be suspended if rules are broken. We hate to see that happen to our fellow RAOKers!

If you have questions, feel free to contact me.

Hug Irene and I wish I lived closer to help you! Take Care and Happy New Year to you my friend and everyone on here.

Updated to say: Huge thank you to Vicky T for granting my sewing help wish!

Love and hugs to all and I do thank God every day for using His vehicle of this special RAOK forum to have me get to meet all of you.

I am editing because I did get an address book at CVS. If anyone comes across a child size (small head) soft tooth brush with a more regular handle I would appreciate that so much. I use kid's size brushes due to my jaw joint issues. Most kids toothburshes, I have noticed the handles are very wide or thick, which is great for the youngesters they are intended for just lol not so much for me. I used to get http://www.amazon.com/Colgate-Extra-Soft-Childrens-Toothbrush/dp/B00EDRB6AE (P.S. Please do not buy this for me or anyone else on amazon. I just realized they are asking almosr $6 for ONE toothbrush, eek)! at Big Lots for 70 cents. They are long sold out. Thank you so much :)

I will be in full swing again this month on my crafting projects and would still appreciate any odd jewelry pieces, bits of chain - whatever you have decided you no longer want. Broken is fine, too! smiley

Thanks so much for your help - always!

Does anyone have a "Scenic America" calendar for 2016 that they won't use? I received one every year from my tax prep place, but they aren't sending them this year! Gah! These are small--- 6 & 1/2" x 6 & 1/2" ---but bigger than purse sized. If you're not using the one you got, I'd love to have it!!
