Welcome to the Random Acts of Kindness thread, also known as a RAOK. This is where we post things to give away to others, asking NOTHING in return but a thank you. No money or credits are exchanged. We give freely, at our own expense. If you see something you’d like, PM the member with your mailing info.  Please be sure to put full postage on any packages you mail out. Members have reported receiving "gifts" with postage due.

Please note that we must abide by PBS rules - NO buying, selling or advertising allowed.

      For liability reasons, sorry, no meds of any kind may be posted in this forum  This includes Rxs, OTC medicines, vitamins and supplements.

RAOK rules -
You may not ask for anything in return for the things you post here. Please do not ask for postage; do not ask to swap or trade.
If you ask for a RAOK posted by another member, please do not offer to pay or give something return. This is not allowed and defeats the purpose of the Random Act of Kindness - try to pay it forward and perhaps grant some wishes in the ***I Wish thread***.
We ask that you do not reply within the thread. We are different from most forums in that way. When we go to wishes, we see wishes; in the RAOK, we see just what’s being given away. If you have a question about it, simply PM the member. All RAOKs are handled privately between members via PM.
Please do not post single use codes - such as Coke codes - in this forum. Post that you have them and let members PM you for them. It saves all the replies within the thread (as above). You may start a separate thread if you want to post them that way. Or check the *** I Wish thread*** and simply grant a Coke code wish or two. Codes that can be used over and over again, are perfectly fine to post here in the RAoK thread.
Please do not ask for ‘everything on your list’ - yes, it’s been done! - let others have a chance.
One of our most important rules - you must acknowledge receipt of the things sent to you! This is our biggest problem. People take the time to post, wrap and mail, then never know if the pkg arrived. Please say thanks for what you receive, either by PM or in the ****Thank You thread**** here. It’s the polite thing to do, and we all worry about our mail getting through. Those who do not do this will often find their future requests ignored, sorry.
Please include your nickname when you mail out a RAOK. This makes you easier to find and thank.
Be sure to check your listing and edit as needed, so people are not disappointed. We know that life gets in the way and computers crash …….but please try.

RAOK Tips -
Think carefully about what you want to give away before you post. Postage costs these days can be terrible for over-sized or heavy, non media, mail. We have all been shocked by the postage for something we mailed here, it happens often. Think first! This is a fun place, but you don’t need to empty you wallet by taking part!! It’s wonderful to do something nice for others, but be kind to yourself too.
Before you post something to give away, check the ***I Wish thread *** --- someone may already be asking for it!

If one of us contacts you about changing your post, please understand that we have to follow PBS rules and guidelines. Often we have to ask someone to change or delete a post because of that. New things come up here all the time. If something is not appropriate, we will tell you so, and ask you to change it. Remember that the PBS team does oversee the forums. They edit posts and have been known to suspend accounts. We hate to have that happen to our fellow RAOKers when we can take care of problems ourselves.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to PM me and ask. We are always happy to be of help members of the RAOK forum, new or old.Thanks for participating in this great part of PBS! Enjoy!

Think Christmas, y'all!

I came across Monarch Horizons counted cross stitch kits for Christmas ornaments of the 12 Days of Christmas.  Each day is a different kit--2 turtle doves, 8 maids-a-milking, etc.  Each design is approx. 2 1/2 x 3 1/2".  Each kit contains cotton floss to complete the project, cotton 14 count AIDA cloth, needle, instructions and an oval frame.

I want to send these to 12 different people.  Hopefully there will be 12 people interested!  You can request a "day"--but it will be first come, first served.  Ideally, I'll just choose one randomly for you.  Please zing me a pm with your mailing address if you are interested.

Merry Christmas in advance!

Update:  All gone!  Thanks everyone!

Just found this while doing some cleaning and hope someone can use it. I have a coupon for $5 off a gallon of Valspar Reserve paint at Lowe's. It expires the 30th of this month. Maybe someone is doing some remodeling of the house and could use the paint? TAKEN

Just about swimsuit season!:

1) TAKEN  Sexy bikini tagged "Holmes Swimwear, Made in USA, Size L" (though I think it fits more like an M).  Glittering metallic red material.  Panties bottom ties at the sides, bikini top ties around the neck and at back.  NEW, with tags attached/hygenic liner in place.  Seems like this one would do better 'for show' than for actual swimming, though!  Photo: https://flic.kr/p/nNCSqu

2)  TAKEN  Vintage one piece by Longitude, Made in USA, size 14. 100% Polyester w/100% Nylon molded bra cups.  Kind of a 'faux' skirt look to it from the front.  No tags, but in excellent/like new condition. Photo:  https://flic.kr/p/nQFrUM

3)  TAKEN   Black one-piece swimsuit tagged Blair, 80% Nylon, 20% Spandex, Size 8.  Attached belt tie.  (I really like the look of this -- it kind of looks like a leotard tucked into a pair of black shorts; and everybody looks great in black, too!)  NEW, with tags/hygienic liner in place.  Photos:  https://flic.kr/p/nzrATu  https://flic.kr/p/nRRULL

4)  TAKEN  Black Speedo Envoltura swimsuit, ladies Size 14.  Lightly padded bust, liner at front.  Looks like new!  Photo: https://flic.kr/p/nC4ndj

5)  TAKEN  Purple swimsuit by "Subtle Shaper".  Size tag has been removed; I'm thinking it's probably a size 10 (and remember, swimwear sizes run smaller than street clothes sizes).  LOVE the fit of this one!  Really comfortable-feeling like nothing will jiggle around, everything lightly compressed.  (I would definitely keep this one if it was 2-3 inches longer in the torso, but since I'm so tall, just doesn't quite fit me lengthwise). Has lightly padded bust, flattering wrap-look at waist.  Excellent, looks like new condition, though without tags.  Photo:  https://flic.kr/p/nRsjrV 

TAKEN  And can't forget Dad for Father's Day (perfect for the Duck Dynasty fan!!)  Four pairs of Guide Gear camo underwear briefs, 100% Cotton, all Men's XL.  All are NEW/UNWORN/UNWASHED, though without packaging (and a factory flaw on one, where the waistband has been attached upside-down, so you can toss it if you want).  Photo: https://flic.kr/p/nQoiyt

PM me if you can use!
