Dear all:

  A few months ago I ordered books for a variety of people with using my credits to order them to be sent to others.  I do want  to say that I am  not ordering them for those that would just like a free book or two, but there are a lot of people who are deserving of a RAOK and I will do that for some of them.  Please contact me and we will see what can be done.  If you knoow of a deserving situation here or outside that might be helped out a bit with a book or two, send me a note.  I "hit the wall" on selling credits every month anyway, so thought I'd use a few for this RAOK.  I did about 20 or so of them around Christmas time and it worked well.

I am not "giving away credits as such, though, so don't ask for that.  Thanks.

I do have about another 50  credits to sell in March at $2.50 each, if anybody is interested.  I am also offering 2 for 1 on my shelf to credit buyers.

See my update note at the end of this thread--added 2/28/11.

 

Winston

What a sweet thing to do! Thank you for your thoughtfulness to our members who could use a lift. smiley

 

 

ETA: Perhaps if you mentioned this over in the Share & Care forum or the Random Acts of Kindness forum it wouldn't get lost in the shuffle of the BB.

I am feeling pretty good right now, my husband and I are both employed (still broke, but money is finally coming in!) and I just wanted to say how delightful your idea is. We received many spontaneous RAOKs that often were the only bright spot in a tough time, and I thank you for thinking to do this, Winston! Debbie

Winston, I'm not in need of a credit or book but I think what you are doing is wonderful.

Greg, RAOK= random act of kindness

Not that I'm short of orders for books off my shelf, but I found a few months ago, after doing this the first time, that I got even more orders---so I again began piling up more credits than I could use or sell---so I'm back in the same boat with a lot of credits.  I guess might as well help out a few people with them.

WInston ordered 2 books for my daughter around Christmas.  She was thrilled!  I just wanted to say thank you again and I think it is wonderful that you are still doing this.

I am wondering Winston, if you have posted this in the ROAK forum??

Just a thought.

I think what you are doing is great!

You're doing a great job, Winston. I am sure that it would boost a lot of people's mood here on PBS :)

I would ask since I'm an unemployed student, but then I realized . . I am sure there are many more people here that deserves and need it more than I do. It would really brighten up their day. God bless! :D

 

---- Thank you Winston, I greatly appreciate it. It made my day. (:

You are awsome! I had to share your thoughtfulness with my friends and family. If every person would do one RAOK then this world we be a better place! I know tonight when I am watching the news and all the sad stories I will think of you and your kindness. Have a blessed day

Please see my PM about a post I read.  There are also deserving people in the Share and Care forum.

I'll give this a bump---still interested in doing some more of this RAOK ordering books for people.

I am back in business selling credits tomorrow, too.  At $2.60 each and credit buyers get 2 for 1 on my books shelf, too. 

LOTS of credits---even more than I had before I started this effort, actually!

This needs a "bump" because requets have dried up, it seems.
