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 unusual (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 money-like items such as gift cards, or for monetary donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as stamps, pop can tabs, etc., but you may not solicit funding. This includes donations for '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 to protect your privacy, 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.

Fulfilled! Tissue and napkins galore. Thanks so much for sharing. I took it all and put it in the middle of the table at my art class and everyone got some to play with. 

One more wish...spools of thread. We are making a wall hanging from spools. Any size, color, any amount of thread on spool, or even empty spools, doesn't matter. 

Thank you!

Happy summer to everyone!

My wish this month is a summer hat for a 6 month old boy who is allergic to everything.  I have a hat that is supposed to fit 12 months but it is too small.  (I got while in Hershey). I can not find children's hats anywhere here.  If anyone has one that is outgrown, I would be extremely grateful.

My mom found me a hat for Grayson!

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 or notcards or postcards 
  3. Pamper Points

My daughter Gabriella is 4 and she likes:

  1. 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
  2. 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

My wish is for everyone here to celebrate International Children's Month in some way.  June gives us a chance to help children so give a children's book to your library, put some in a mini library, volunteer to help at school or in children's summer activities. Or, just be creative and do something special for other children.

May I have warm thougths and prayers this month.  No, there is no particular new problem, I just need it.
