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.

Coke Codes

Samples or Trial Samples of shampoo, makeup, perfume not wanted. I love em!

Decorative Duct Tape any color or type, big or small.

Adult Coloring Books.

Gel Pens, especially in Black.


Long Shots:

My daughter is 11 and she has started collecting state and country flags,  flag pendants or charms, as well flags she can hang in her special part in her room..  she also  wants to wear them on a chain. She has USA and Canada on a necklace. But she wants state flags and more countries.. They have every country and state flag charm on Amazon but they are expensive. So if you have your state on a charm or pendant, on a small or big flag she can hang, or your flag on anything I think she would be thrilled..

I have recently begun to amass a number of bizarre socks. Any additional donations would be greatly appreciated. They don't necessarily have to match or have partners; that just adds to their oddness. Thank you!

Please send good wishes/prayers out for my daughter Kristen to get the job at Pandora in Boston.  They have scheduled a second interview and knowing she has a job waiting when she moves out there the beginning of July would go a long way to relieving her stress.

Thank you in advance for anything that you send because I can always use some happy mail

  1. Address Labels (I'm not picky about the design as long as its not nasty or demonic).... these are desperately needed since I just moved again.  I got some last month but I can always use more because of the amount of mail I send out
  2. Bright or funny post-it notes or note pads
  3. Coke Rewards and Pamper Points
  4. Pocket Letters and items to make them and Atcs and thing to make them like 2x3 paper, tiny alphas and tiny stamps
  5. Those fat advertising pens. You know the thick ones. The free ones that you get from different companies. They're easier for my hand to hold with the nerve damage than regular pens

My daughter Gabriella is 3 and she likes:

  1. Cars Trucks and trains especially anything involving Thomas
  2. Coloring pages and coloring books (she doesn't really need crayons)- Computer print-outs are fine especially anything with Nick Jr or Disney characters.  Actually any toys or items with these themes would be appreciated.
  3. She can be really girly so she loves baby Dolls or Barbie dolls or clothes or accessories for the dolls or anything to do with dress-up except for shoes, fake nails and make-up
  4. Anything involving potty training including DVDs, dolls, games or pull-ups if you have any that you don't need anymore size 5T or overnight pull-ups to fit a 40lb child
  5. She wears uniform for school and uniforms can be really expensive and get stained way too easily. So if you have size 6 yellow tops and navy blue bottoms and cardigans that you can pass on they would be very appreciated. Also hair accessories especially in yellow and/or blue

I am looking for glitter for a craft project. I only need a small amount so something that is leftover from another craft project will work fine. Glitter glue would also work.

And my daughter is looking from some small stuffed animals and small kids toys that she can use as prizes/incentives at a children's camp. She is volunteering there as an assistant camp counselor this summer.
