Welcome to the Random Acts of Kindness thread. Known as a RAOK, 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.

Please note that we must abide by PBS rules - NO buying, selling or advertising allowed.

RAOK rules -
You may not ask for anything in return for the things you post here. Please do not ask for postage; do not ask to swap or trade.
If you ask for a RAOK posted by another member, please do not offer to pay or give something return. This is not allowed and defeats the purpose of the Random Act of Kindness - try to pay it forward and perhaps grant some wishes in the ***I Wish thread***.
We ask that you do not reply within the thread. We are different from most forums in that way. When we go to wishes, we see wishes; in the RAOK, we see just what’s being given away. If you have a question about it, simply PM the member. All RAOKs are handled privately between members via PM.
Please do not post single use codes - such as Coke codes - in this forum. Post that you have them and let members PM you for them. It saves all the replies within the thread (as above). You may start a separate thread if you want to post them that way. Or check the *** I Wish thread*** and simply grant a Coke code wish or two. Codes that can be used over and over again, are perfectly fine to post here.
Please do not ask for ‘everything on your list’ - yes, it’s been done! - let others have a chance.
One of our most important rules - you must acknowledge receipt of the things sent to you! This is our biggest problem. People take the time to post, wrap and mail, then never know if the pkg. arrived. Please say thanks for what you receive, either by PM or in the ****Thank You thread**** here. It’s the polite thing to do, and we all worry about our mail getting through. Those who do not do this often find their future requests ignored, sorry.
Please include your nickname when you mail out a RAOK. This makes you easier to find and thank.
Be sure to check your listing and edit as needed, so people are not disappointed. We know that life gets in the way and computers crash …….but please try.

RAOK Tips -
Think carefully about what you want to give away before you post. Postage costs these days can be terrible for over-sized or heavy, non media, mail. We have all been shocked by the postage for something we mailed here, it happens often. Think first! This is a fun place, but you don’t need to empty you wallet by taking part.!! It’s wonderful to do something nice for others, but be kind to yourself too.

Before you post something to give away, check the ***I Wish thread *** - someone may already be asking for it!

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.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to PM me and ask. We are always happy to be of help members of the RAOK forum, new or old. Thanks for participating in this great part of PBS! Enjoy!!

1 Venetian Harlequin (Pierot Doll)    -  TAKEN

 about 16 inches high, sitting down about 8 inches,  gold lame costume, porcelain legs, hands and head with a collar made from real feathers. Real pretty , but not suitable as a children's toy, might break and tear.  Decorative purposes only.

3 fantasy collectibles:   -   TAKEN

base of polished half gem stone with the following pewter figurines and half-gem rock chrystals:

Pegasus Horse and a chrystal rock on a brown half gem.  (3 inches in diameter)

Wizards castle on light brown half gem. (3 inches in diameter)

Wizard with a large amethyst rock on a blue gemstone. (5 inches in diameter)

Again these are not suitable for children, will break when handled roughly.  Decorative purposes only.


All these items are very nice and I loved them very much so I would like for them to go to someone whol really appreciates them and will display them.

Not someone who will tear them apart for art and craft projects or sell them at a yardsale.

And as stated before they could be a danger to children when they play with it (break into pieces and cut the tots). (my limited liability waiver!!!)

Please send a PM.

I have a bunch of used postcards, all kinds, from all over the world. Just guessing that I probably have about 50-60. I used to do postcrossing. Would like to send to more than one person, so please specify how many you would like, and if you want me to pick at random or if you would like specific designs/artwork or from specific places. Thanks!
