Post what you have to give away in this thread.

For our purposes, a Random Act of Kindness (to be referred to as a RAOK) is defined as something nice one PBS member does for another PBS member with NO CREDITS changing hands!  The  idea  is for people to post items they are willing to send another member FREE of charge or credits (including shipping). This is a great way to make someone's day at the same time that you can declutter your house of things you no longer need/use but weren't  sure you wanted to discard.  NOTE:  Some of us don't remember every member's nickname, so it is helpful to write that by your address label, when you send a RAOK, to make it easier for receiving members to thank you.

The  way to do this,  is to list items to this thread that you are willing to send as RAOKs the way we list damaged books/ARCs/etc. in the Book Bazaar, and make them first come, first serve. When an item has been spoken for, just cross it off or delete it from your post. You might want to show who got it but that's up to you. Just  make sure you update as frequently as possible so that no one is disappointed. Please everyone just use one post each and keep it updated.     NOTEBefore posting a ROAK, you might want to check this month's *** I Wish thread to see if you are able to fill a members' Wish, first.  This is especially true for Coke codes, boxtops for education, etc.

If you see something you'd like,  PM the member with your address.  To post things you are wishing for, see the ***Jan.. I WIsh thread.***  And to keep these threads clean and easy to read, please use the ***Jan.. Thank you thread*** to thank people for things you have received.

Obviously since RAOKs are free but cost the sender shipping, if you request a RAOK from someone and they aren't able to ship it for a while, please be patient!  Please mark out items as they are taken so other members are not disappointed.

Sometimes, it's the little things that make a person smile!

Any questions, please feel free to PM me.

Happy New Year to all!  I have a few things to start out 2010:

      1) Pretty floral card "So Sorry About Your Accident". I'm not waiting for someone to have one in order to use it! So if you know someone you'd like to send it to, it's yours.

      2) Symbicort savings card, expires 12/10

      3) Similac coupons - buy 2, get one free - exp.1/15/10

Also have some flower decals ( 4x4") - the kind you dip in water to transfer to things, not  sticky ones.  It's kind of '70's flower power, all oranges, pinks, very, umm, bright. (The real word woudl be gaudy!)

PM with your address if you want anything here.  Check back - I edit and add as I get rid of things and find more.

I still have the $7.00 off coupon for Enfamil Enfagrow products.  Coupon expires 1/31/10

I also have some random fronts of cards...variety of Christmas & all occasion...most have been cut down to the picture size...had the idea to make gift tags from them but never did.  Probably have enough to give some to a few people.

A $5.00 off any Nestle Good Start Formula 2 bulk canister. Coupon expires 7/15/10

My monthly offers:

Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons -- I have a ton!  And from what I have been told, you can use up to five at a time (assuming you buy five things!) and you can use expired coupons

If you know of anyone that is serving overseas that would like an occasional card, postcard, Sunday comics, etc, just send me the address and I'll add them to my list.


And my new one for this month:  If you are looking for a particular coupon, let me know.  I may have a bunch of them.  I don't do well with "any cat food", but if tell me you are looking for Cat Chow, I might have some.

To the ones I send grocery coupons to, I think I will send the whole insert this week.  Didn't get papers in until 12:30 last weekend, so had 13 extra papers.  Will let you do the cuttling.  Will try to get them out Tuesday.

  • Miscellaneous used but still good to reuse large-ish mailing envelopes
  • Gold tone 1.5" sq pin / brooch with five yellow, topaz-ish stones and many small purple accent stones, pretty but not my style


ETA:  "Rise Up" is a really fun song.  Kind of Bluesy, but iTunes categorizes it as Pop.  Her voice reminds me a little of how Adele must have been a few years before she was discovered.  "Baby Boomer" is a catchy tune and the voices remind me of the solo efforts of some of the Beatles, The Traveling Wilburys, with a little Johnny Cash thrown in for good measure.   "Se Fue" is in Spanish and upbeat and has a female vocalist.

I still have some bumper stickers left to give away. I think I still have all of these sayings, but they are in my desk at work, so I'll have to check to make positively sure when I get there. Just PM me with the one(s) you'd like.

"Cats are people too"

"The Best Way to Remember Your Wife's Birthday, is to Forget it Once!!!" (only have 1 of this saying)

"Happiness is being SINGLE"

"I (heart) SHOPPING"

"Happiness is being a Grandparent"

"Even Mr. Goodwrench couldn't fix this car!!!"

"Born in the USA"

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans!!!"


Also, my grandmother gives me the coupons from the Sunday papers, and we rarely ever use them. If you need coupons, let me know. I'll be happy to send them to you. If you are looking for specific ones, let me know, and I'll sift through them to see if they're in there.

I have a box of old scrapbook supplies I'd like to send out to someone. It's a lot of odds and ends: stickers and rub-ons, mostly, and some chipboard letters and shapes, and whatever else I can cram into it before I slap the mailing label on! Some are unused, some have bits and pieces used. First person to PM me can have it. :-)

Taken, thanks!
