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 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.

Happy July, everyone! smiley

My wishes this month are:

heart Coke codes (always needed and useful!)

heart Coupons for Garnier skincare products and Garnier hairdye

heart Does anyone make address labels? I am in need of some new ones. Doesn't have to be anything fancy. smiley

heart Anything Snow White (my favorite Disney princess!)

heart As usual, any vintage or vintage looking (1940s - 1960s) clothes or accessories and it's perfectly fine if they need some love and repair. I am a huge fan of all things vintage and dress vintage/pinup style.

Thank you for reading!

Happy July to All!

I have wished for and received this before (thank you) kids toothbrushes. I have TMJ (jaw joint) issues and use a child sized toothbrush because of the much smaller and softer head. I had been using an animal print toothbrush found at the Dollar Tree that came with a toothbrush holder. I am not seeing the product I bought on Dollar Tree's site. Here is something similar: https://www.dollartree.com/health-beauty/baby-children/Health/GB-Kids-Toothbrushes-with-Cases/591c592c1001p358469/index.pro?method=search Please DO NOT spend money on this for me! The trouble is the bristles come off! :P I found a plastic bristle in my teeth the other day, awful. I have right now one of these funny toothbrushes in green: https://www.dollartree.com/Seasonal-Holidays/emergency-supplies/Health-First-Aid/Dr-Fresh-Smiley-Gripper-Toothbrush-with-Kid-s-Crest/1248c644c918p177029/index.pro?method=search This works much better than the first option, it just suctions onto the counter as opposed to fitting in the toothbrush cup. Long ago, I used to buy for 70 cents at Big Lots: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71KGJVZACnL._SX522_.jpg These were the best brushes but alas are long since discontinued. If any of you comes across them I would deeply appreciate if you would get it for me. Please do not spend Amazon prices for it!

Keeping with oral care, coupons for Listerine Floss are always wonderful. I only use: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41n2A15PakL._SY355_.jpg

Prayers for our country and truly world to choose peace and God. Happy and Blessed 4th of July to all. Thank you all who have served or are serving our country and your families, too. God Bless You (everyone :)

Washi Tape - any amount, any print or color. 

True Story or True Dectective magazines - remember those? I had to hide them under my bed because mom thought they were "trashy". LOL I have a craft project in mind if I can find a few copies to work with.

Fleece - I am making dog toys for our animal shelter. I can make them or I can send you a link how to make them. Fleece needs to be at least 30" long and I cut into 2" strips to work with.

Thank you for looking.

Happy July!

I'd love to have anything 'Toucan bird' - I just love those birds with the colorful beak!

And, as always, anything Tiki for my little Tiki reading room - even the littlest thing has a place in the Tiki room & adds to the fun decor.


Thanks to everyone who participates in the RAOK!  What a great group of friends!!

Happy July all!  =0)

I know it is a LONGGGGGG shot, but does anyone have any Hallmark Ornaments that they no longer want?  They do not have to be in perfect conditon or have a box.  I think this year I will do a small tree for my little guys (in addition to our regular tree) as they love to look at the little characters that Hallmark puts out.

Thanks in advance.

This project has been started by my cousin and several of her church friends.  If you have material you could or would donate, you can send to me and I will make sure it is delivered to these ladies.

Nancy Isaacs

Pat Hayes and Nancy Isaacs would like to organize a group to make quilts for the flood victims of Rainelle and area. Cold weather will be here soon. We need your help. If you have any 12 1/2 or 6 1/2 inch 100% cotton squares in your stash of fabric, we could use them. They can be solids, prints, any pattern. We will collect as many as we can get. Work will be in stages.
1. Collect fabric
2. Meet , design and sew. Quilts will be full and tw...in.
3. Quilt or knot or arrange to have quilted.
Information will be on facebook, posted, fliers. If you think you can't sew, you can sort, press, etc. If you are unable to help, we will take donations for batting and backing. All money received will go for materials for the quilts. . For more information, send private message for address and telephone number. We all want to help in some way. We are all neighbors.

License plates from anywhere but Kansas or Missouri.  Personal plates and motorcycle plates are requested, too.

Just realized:  I really need a charger for Samsung L310W camera or Kodak easyshare or Sony cybershot

Thanks so much!

Things that I am wishing for this month (and August too.)
*Tennis balls.  They don't need to be new.  I am using them on the bottom of chairs in a school.
*Anything yellow or summer like.  I am creating a "sunny day" basket for a church raffle and will include anything for summer or anything that is yellow.
