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, you never know what will turn up.

We must abide by PBS rules :
You may not wish for money, or monetary donations for any charities ( you may ask for things you collect for charities, like stamps, can tabs etc., but not for money. This includes 'gofundme' sites)
No buying or selling or advertising.
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. You may not ask for free books of any kind sorry. (Unpostables are given away in the damaged book thread of the Bazaar and sometimes in the RAOK thread)

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. Try to pay it forward, maybe grant 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 go to the wishes, you see wishes. In the RAOK, it's all 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, if you post wishes, be prepared to check in and answer your PMs. It's frustrating when people want to grant your wishes and don't hear from you!

You do need to say THANK YOU. See our monthly ****thank you thread****, or you may acknowledge what you have received via a personal PM to the members who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Tips :
Check the RAOK forum before you post wishes -- things 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, 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 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.

My FAVORITE month of the year is here (and the roses are blooming!!!)  Happy June to all!  My wishes:


Coke codes (always VERY much appreciated!)


Coupons for:

Any brand of almonds or peanuts

Frozen burritos 

Little Debbie Snack Cakes 

Mariani or Sunmaid, etc., Dried Fruit

Fresh Express Salad Mixes

Sugarless gum

Granola bars, oatmeal, or other snacks that I can put in care packages for my son in the Marine Corps.

Hormel pepperoni, Hormel Compleats

Langer's juice or Welch's, Tropicana refrigerated juice, or any other juice coupons

Libby's canned vegetables

Special K, Honey Bunches of Oats, or any Quaker cereal

Yogurt coupons

Long Shots:  

                    1)  Any kitchen decor items in red; just bought new Corelle dinnerware in a red & white pattern and am trying to re-do my kitchen with red accessories (trivets, magnets, towels, potholders or dishrags, spoon rest, serving spoons or utensils, decor, etc. -- just about anything!)

                    2)  Nintendo DS games (for the small, handheld Nintendo gaming device; my son asked for/received a DS game system for Christmas, as he'll be stationed on a Navy ship for maneuvers with no access to his phone, video games, etc.  He found out last year that one of these Nintendo game systems are great for fighting boredom in their 'down time', with little else to do on a ship!)

                    3)  Any items, books, bookmarks, etc. related to the Ragdoll cat breed.  My Ragdoll cat is pictured in my avatar and I'm completely enamored with this breed!  Also any cat toys with feathers; both my cats love those feather wands, etc.

I have a couple of wishes to share:

  • This is going to sound weird, but Shasta beverages are pretty non-existent in my area. I know they're heavy, so it'd be hard to make work. I used to get Mario sodas by Shasta when I was a kid. They weren't around long, and they've been discontinued for ages, but these 2 are theoretically the closest to the formulas they used for 2 of the Mario sodas. I would love, love, LOVE to get any amount of:
    • Shasta Fruit Punch
    • Shasta Black Cherry Cola
  • Any unused portions of Bath and Body Works "Dreamy Vanilla Woods" bodywash, soap, and/or lotion would be, well, dreamy. It's my mom's favorite scent ^.^
  • An Alice Twilight Barbie in any condition. I know that one in display/collector condition is pricey, but I'm hoping to find one that's been well-loved and is possibly on her final leg of her journey to try my hand at customizing.

Hi everyone!

Here are some things that I would be so happy to have!

1.) Arm and Hammer Clump and Seal Cat Litter Coupons....

2.) Stickers any size, any kind.

3.) Index cards

4.) any kind of blank postcards

5.) My longshot --- Any fun glass used or new of something cheery like Care bears, Charlie Brown. I try to drink out of a fun glass everyday and it really gives me a smile.

6.) Pens. I am constantly losing mine or they are running out of ink. If you have a fun one or a couple to spare I would greatly appreciate it!

7.) I collect anything having to do with Sharks, Turtles, Frogs, and Giraffes

Hey everybody! I can't believe it's June already. Summer's finally here! My wishes for this month are:

- any weird earrings you may not want. I have a big collection of strange earrings and I love them!

- anything Hello Kitty (as always)

- if you have a wealth of stamps I'd really appreciate a couple. I write to my 84 y/o great aunt weekly and the cost of stamps just does not fit into our budget right now

- any kind of stickers

- anything Harley Davidson for my husband

- any kind of baby sun tan lotion. I have to coat my daughter in it every day before we go outside because her skin is so fair

Thanks for reading!

I only have a few wishes for this month:

Stationary -- I just adopted a soldier through the Adopt A US Soldier program, to send him letters & care packages because he has no one else to do so. Also I was given my younger cousins address, he's in jail and has requested I send him letters, and am in need of paper/envelopes. Any little bit helps.

Journaling/Scrap booking Supplies -- Not only for my own journal but I like to decorate the letters that I send out. Some of the stickers several of you sent me last month went into decorating my adopted soldiers envelope. :)

Pittsburgh Steelers stuff -- My adopted soldier is a fan of the Steelers, ironicly I do not like this team, lol, if anyone has any of this teams items they no longer want I would like to get some for him. Again, any little bit helps.


That's it for me, anything received would be greatly appreciated. Throughout this month I will be preparing for our move in July and will be packing up and slowly moving house to "nowhere" Georgia. This is possibly the last time I will be able to participate in this or anything else for a while. I just wanted everyone to know that their kindness has meant a lot to me this past month and I will appreciate it and you always. :)
