|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. Remember this is a PUBLIC forum, meaning anyone (not just members) can see what is posted here. Please do not post last names, addresses, or postal tracking numbers here, in order to protect the privacy of our participants.
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 rules -
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!
The. First round of these were mailed today. Still have more. This is more any child, not just ones in need.
Happy Summer and July! May each of you be blessed throughout the month!
I have a different kind of offer that I am going to post here and then I will put another post with my normal kind of things.
This is offer is for any child that is getting ready to go back to school. I would like to send each child (that I can, I think I have enough to do about 20 packages) a packet of things that will be related to back to school. (crayons, pencils, lead, erasers, markers, glue, scissors are just some things that may be in the packages). I would like to mail directly to the child since all children love mail that comes in their name. I know that most schools don't start until the end of August or beginning of September so I will probably mail these in the middle of July or first of August. Home-schoolers are welcome to ask to packets too. All you need to do to have me mail a packet is:
1. PM me the name of the child as I will address directly to the child.
Example of way the package will be addressed: Grayson Tabor
c/o Vicky Tabor
PO Box 282
Mt. Lookout, WV
2. Give me the child's address.
3. Give me a name to put the package in care of.
4. Tell me the age of the child as some things are not suitable for all children.
If you have questions or this doesn't make sense, please PM me.

I put everyone's name in a bowl and asked my DH to pick a name. The winner is Mary L.! Funny thing, he doesn't really know what I'm doing and he asks me if it is our daughter Mary that won. Ha Ha!
I have a pair of beautiful silver/onyx pierced earrings. They measure about 1 inch from the end of the wire. They are the head of either an Egyptian person or an African person.. I honestly don't know. I would like to give these to someone for whom they would hold some kind of meaning. I wish I could post a pic but I can't. Please PM me as to why these earrings would be special to you.
