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, you never know what will turn up.

We must abide by PBS rules :
You may not wish for money, or monetary donations for any charities ( you may ask for things you collect for charities, like stamps, can tabs etc., but not for money. This includes 'gofundme' sites)
No buying or selling or advertising.
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. You may not ask for free books of any kind sorry. (Unpostables are given away in the damaged book thread of the Bazaar and sometimes in the RAOK thread)

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. Try to pay it forward, maybe grant 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 go to the wishes, you see wishes. In the RAOK, it's all 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, if you post wishes, be prepared to check in and answer your PMs. It's frustrating when people want to grant your wishes and don't hear from you!

You do need to say THANK YOU. See our monthly ****thank you thread****, or you may acknowledge what you have received via a personal PM to the members who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Tips :
Check the RAOK forum before you post wishes -- things 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, 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 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.

So it turns out that my brother and dad couldn't last more than a week or so without a computer so we now have it back. I can use my tablet freely now. I only have a few wishes for this month:


Envelopes: like a dummy I managed to pack my envelopes into storage, 3 hours away from me and I really can't afford to buy any at the moment. I need some to kep in contact with my adopted soldier.

Stationary: still in need of paper.

Stickers / Rub-on Tattoos: I use these to decorate the letters I send out. 

Snail Mail: Odd request I guess. But I would really like to walk the 1/2 mile down our new dirt road and find something in it, lol.


That's it! Any little bit helps and will be greatly appreciated.


*Edited using my brothers laptop to better format this. I have no clue why my tablet crammed everything together.

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th and are enjoying the weekend. :)

My July wishes

 Mini address book, preferably in a color or with a  cute design. If this matters I do prefer dogs to cats.

A few years ago Target in their Dollar Spot sold cell phone holders in the shape of a small chair. The chair has been the perfect place for not my cell phone but to seat a small stuffed Winnie the pooh. I could use a second chair, for a second small stuffed animal, Pooh's friend, Piglet! :)

Thank you and Happy July!
