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.

I would greatly appreciate a Dashboard Disk. One of those round plastic disks that adhere to your dashboard so you can secure your GPS to it.


Thanks so much.

Anything to do with the movies Cars, Cars 2, Planes, and Planes: Fire and Rescue.


Any coloring books that can be colored with colored pencils. After my dad passed away in January I was trying to find something to distract my mom from dwelling on it. I got her hooked on coloring. Someone sent her a book that was really good for using colored pencils. I got her colored pencils and now she is spoiled and says she doesn't like crayons anymore. laugh I have gotten her several and she colors them in about a week!

Used Greeting cards.  I recycle the cards in many, many ways. Our Ladies group at church makes picture books for children, little folded gift boxes, bookmarks, altered notecards, and an assortment of other craft projects. We have been blessed over the years to have people keep us on their list to send used Christmas cards, but we are in need of all kinds of greeting cards for all occasions. We especially like picture of animals, as these make fantastic picture books for the kids. We gave out 225 books last year!

Thank you!

UPDATE: (Thank you for the recipes. We got quite a few from here and from another chat board, plenty to fill up the books!)

3/4 inch round labels, preferably white but can use colors as well.

Shelf paper, the kind that comes in a roll.  Smaller pieces are fine.  The self-adhesive kind, not the "lite-stick" adhesive.

1.) size 6 diapers (or coupons for them - any type other than pampers as my son is allergic to them).

2.) baby wipes 

3.) standard size pillow cases

4.) dishwashing detergent

This is my birthday month, so any happy wishes would be appreciated.  :)

My wishes:

Circle paper punch, 1"-2" diameter
Watercolor paper
I need 2 more Kelloggs codes from the specially-marked Avengers movie boxes of cereal to earn a movie ticket  :)
Codes from the caps of 15.2-oz or 20-oz bottles of Minute Maid
UV, digital movie, or VUDU codes, or codes for VUDU credits (WalMart has some in their deli take-and-bake pizza boxes)
Vintage Holly Hobbie items, especially a sheet to make into a quilt
This is a huge long shot, but if anyone has watercolor brush pens or dual brush pens that they don't use anymore, and you'd like to pass them along to someone, I would love to try some out.  :)

My wishes this month are for the following. 

Stationary and stickers. I have loved getting all the ones in I did last month and I go through them like crazy. Yes, I put stickers on all my packages I ship out:)

Family movies. The local library doesn't have a whole lot and we enjoy anything from Hallmark type movies to Christian things, etc. I also like crime and mystery shows. So anything like that you are wanting to get rid of or pass on would be appreciated.

Bubble envelopes, even if they have already been used. I ship a lot of things every week between here and my book swap friends so they come in handy.

Thanks in advance!

Happy June everyone! I hope this month blooms sun and fun for you :) My wish this month is similar to one previously. I would appreciate so very much if anyone who wanted would please PM me by this Sunday, June 7th a message of cheer for our friend LarkspurJane. She is no longer here on PBS but I'm sure most of you here in RAOK know her. I will compile all greetings and print out. They will be included aboard Sticker Train 3 that will eventually pull up right at her mailbox. ETA: Please let me know your font and/or font color preference if you have them :) What is Sticker Train 3 and How are you able to hop aboard? Please feel free to PM me about that, too. I am going to make a separate thread soon for that. Please do not post about the sticker train within this thread. Thank you! God Bless :)

Happy June!!!!  My wishes for June are:

I collect Avon jewelry, especially earrings either vintage or newer pairs.  If anyone has any I would love them.
