|Page: Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
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. Remember this is a PUBLIC forum, meaning anyone (not just members) can see what is posted here. Please do not post last names, addresses, or postal tracking numbers here, in order to protect the privacy of our participants.
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 Tips -
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 put the word TAKEN in another color by that item, 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 -
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!
Happy Summer Vacay!!!

I can order some magazine subsciptions this month. Here are your choices, and they will go to first to request so you might want to select a first selection and a second. I am redeeming points that are expiring so I'm not sure how long it will take until the magazine starts coming. Get your address and selection to me by 6pm EST 6/2.
All requests have been processed. It said 6-12 weeks for delivery to start.
Update, one subscription didn't go through as the magazine was no longer available. It didn't say which one though. So I do apologize.

ALL GONE! That was QUICK! I hope you all enjoy your worry stones. I had so much fun tumbling the raw material in my rock polisher - it's amazing how the speckles or multi-colored lines brighten up and show their patterns afterwards. This was great fun!
Some of you know of my love of minerals of any kind and I have an unusual offer to make you. I have 10 polished stones of varying colors and kinds - some out of my desert backyard - that I am offering you for 'worry stones'. They fit nicely between the second finger and your thumb in a 'loose fist position' and can be kneaded when you feel tensions mounting. The smooth and cool hardness can be comforting and the stone can easily travel in a pocket or your purse for quick access!
If you would like one, please pm me and include your name and address. Hey! These are stressful times!!
