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 postage, 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 offered 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 is for prayers.  It has been a difficult couple weeks.  Lee had surgery Tuesday in Pittsburgh but is doing well.  My DIL. Had an emergency appendectomy last night but seems to be doing well.  My dad who turns 78 today, July 1, had a Doppler test this week too with no results yet.  What a week!

My only wish is that the receivers of RAOK packages or letters acknowledge the receipt of the item(s).

Again another one  of my RAOKs that I sent have not been acknowledged as received.  This happens about half of the time and it makes me a bit sad that it has happened again.  I will not return to this forum and will not send out RAOKs anymore.

But in the spirit of the forum I wish that everybody who receives something can find the time to thank the person who sent the item.

Thank you to all the kindness going around here.

Happy July! Have a happy and safe month!

My wishes this month are:

heart Bangle bracelets - any color. I've been very fortunate to receive some through our loving ROAK and I'm bringing back the request because they are such a cheery accessory to add to an outfit. Here's an example: http://adworks.pk/jewelry/unique-bakelite-bangles-latest-styles.php/attachment/bakelite-bangles-for-girls

heart I dress vintage/pinup style and sometimes it gets a bit tricky on a budget. I would love any vintage (1940s - 1960s) clothes/accessories or ones that look like vintage. Generally small to medium. Perfectly fine if they need some repair and extra love. smiley

heart Brooches/pins - the more unusual the better! Broken ones are awesome too because I can repair or use them as a base for creating new ones.

heart Scented oils for my oil burner, especially anything that smells of mint. It's so soothing!

Along the lines of Angelica's post, above. I wish the RAOKS "granted" were actually received! I've been waiting on a couple that I have yet to get, so it's possible that if we don't get acknowledgement, it wasn't received. I even went so far as to ask if I should start to worry when I hadn't received either item, and have not heard back. So maybe the answer is to communicate when it is sent AND upon receipt. Or if it isn't going to be sent :( as always, good communication helps!

My wish is that everyone take a moment this month to do something special for another member here on the board that would be a complete surprise to them. Maybe a member you don't know well at all. Through my experiences with card fairies I am realizing more and more that everyone around us is fighting some kind of battle.  Please let us be kind and loving to one another. We have a chance here to make a difference in each others lives.. reach out to someone and surprise them!

Michelle S, I love your idea for everyone to do something special for another member. That would definitely be random. My question:  How are we to know the address of someone if we have never sent to them before?

Thank you so much for the encouragement on the post!

I suppose you could ask them for their address and just say you have a surprise (RAOK) for them... :-). Unless another member has their address and permission was given for them to share it. But just letting each other know that they have some support here on PBS that there are friends and new friends here.

Oh, I thought of something I'm in need of and which someone might have too many of - safety pins! I'm in need of safety pins, any size and color, but especially those to pin exesss fabric in a skirt that is too large to make them fit better. I am afraid I have a few that are feeling too loose.

I was hoping some of you guys could join in on some action I started for my dad.

Michelle S told me about a website called Love Letters. The link is below. I nominated my dad to recieve love letters from peeps all over the world. I told a bit of his story and they choose him along with 3 others to feature on the website. If you guys dont mind to go to this link and you will see his story third one down called ROGER'S BUNDLE. Its just to write a letter to him or send a card. Ill save all that I get and wrap them in a ribbon and present them to him in 2 weeks.  Thanks sooooo much if you can be a part of this for him.
