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.

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 -
You may not ask for anything in return for the things you post here. Please do not ask for postage, or to swap or trade.
If you ask for a RAOK posted by another member, please do not offer to pay or give something in 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 this way. When we go to ***I Wish***, we see wishes; in ***RAOK***, we see just what’s being given away. If you have a question about it, simply PM the member. All RAOKs should be 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). 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 in RAOK.
Please do not ask for ‘everything on your list’ (yes, it’s been done), so that others can have a chance. Try to limit your list to max of 10 items.
One of our most important rules is that you must acknowledge receipt of the things sent to you! This is our biggest problem. People take the time to post, wrap, and mail, and then never know if the package arrived. Please say thanks for what you receive, either by PM or in the ***Thank You*** thread. It’s the polite thing to do, and we all worry about our mail getting through. Those who don't acknowledge a kindness will often find their future requests ignored.
Please include your name or PBS 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.
Credit transactions should only take place in the Book Bazaar or by private PM.

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 items that cannot go by 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 your 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 you mark "taken" by your items that have been asked for, please do so at the beginning of the line and, if possible, put the word TAKEN in another color 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 -
The people offering RAOKs are doing it out of kindness and generosity, often despite limited means.  Please make your requests for those items in the same spirit, and do not ask for anything that was not explicitly offered.  The people posting RAOKs are offering just what they have, and we appreciate them for doing so.  A request for substitutions is not in keeping with the intention of this thread.  If you would accept only a particular color, size, flavor, or other quality of an offered item, then please use the ***I Wish*** thread to ask for the specific item there instead.

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!

I have several each of the little body lotion, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner that hotels stock.  These come from the OPAL Collection created by Gilchrist & Soames. I got them at a conference I attended at the Sagamore Hotel.  They don't appear to have a specific scent, but I have at least 3 of each product. I also have a couple of the Aloe Vera Skin care bars and a couple disposable shower caps. 

If anyone wants them, I would prefer to send all to one person, but will split if no one wants the whole bunch.

Do any of you have a friend named Mona (not me :) who is (like me) a Disneyland fan and who still had a birthday coming up this year? My own birthday was last month. I got a Happy Birthday button, it looks like this (but is a bit more teal in person): http://thumbs3.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/mRGyMkaBdGMcL_0O5wqYHMg.jpg A CM wrote my name on it and drew 2 Mickey balloons. I enjoyed the button and would love to pass it on to another Mona :) PM me if interested. Thanks!

Here's what I have for this month:

1. I can make 3 people a bookmark if you would like one.

4. I have one new "New Orleans Saints" sticker that came out of a vending machine.

6. I have several new adult coloring pages I can send to one person-most are geometric designs, a few are Xmas related.

7. I have one pair of plastic earrings that I painted when I was a kid..it is a bouquet of flowers. These would be good to wear for a costume party or topsy turvy day,etc. :)

I may have more things later when I have time to clean and finish up with a rummage sale this weekend. Please be patient when requesting...may not be able to check email the next several days. Thanks!

1.  Wine Corks -  TAKEN

2.  A very long, very fluffy petticoat (cotton) in royal blue with a matching skirt in navy blue (raw silk). The skirt also has ruffles, and together the outfit would come about 5 inches short of my ankle, I am 5 foot 3 inches.  So it hits somewhere between below the knee and the ankle.  It has a drawstring waist.  The petticoat looks like a petticoat but is very wide and fairly heavy, and the flamenco type skirt over it makes it very voluminous. But it is pretty, it was my evening gown outfit, together with a cute little Jacket and Kummerbund the same color,  but I am keeping the Jacket to wear with a black pencil skirt. If you think you could use it for an evening outfit or you are a member of a theater company I would send it.  But I don't want to send it to a craft person to use it for scraps.  It will be fairly expensive to send, so I don't want it used for scraps or rags.  If you are interested PM me, it may be a few weeks before I get to mail it.  TAKEN

Thank you.

I am not 100 percent sure if each of these codes is unique or other people can use my code as well but let's see!

I bought Snow White on DVD and this code was included for the digital version to be watched online at any time.
