|Page: Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
Welcome to the Random Acts of Kindness thread, also known as the RAOK place. 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. If you are the one mailing, please be sure to put full postage on any packages you send. Members have reported receiving "gifts" with postage due. Remember this is a PUBLIC forum, meaning anyone (not just members) can see what is posted here. Please do not list addresses or postal tracking numbers within a post here in order to protect privacy.
Please note that we must abide by PBS rules - NO buying, selling or advertising allowed.
For liability reasons, sorry, but no medications of any kind may be posted in this forum. This includes prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and supplements.
RAOK rules -
RAOK Tips -
Before you post something to give away, check the ***I Wish*** thread --- someone may already be asking for it!
If you mark "taken" by your items that have been asked for, please put the word TAKEN in another color by that item, so it's easily apparent to our members that something is no longer available. This avoids disappointments and keeps you from getting more requests for an item that has already been claimed. Or, just edit your post to delete that item.
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.
RAOK reminders for people requesting something that is offered here -
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to PM me and ask. We are always happy to be of help to members of the RAOK forum, new or old. Thanks for participating in this great part of PBS! Enjoy!

Update 3/7/17 on the codes, i sent out 24 more codes to some of the same ppl, i still have 8 left. But i still see the code caps on the soda bottle, so idk when it will stop if they are not going to be doing them anymore. I still have not heard from a few ppl from the codes in feb, so idk if those got used up.
3/2/17 Sending out the rest of my coke codes hope to send them all today, i guess i should not save them anymore.
Update: ok, i sent out 54 codes and from last month i have not heard back from two ppl so there are still 24 codes that i dont know if they have been used or not.
I still have 23 codes left in my bag. oh wow last month was 121 codes.

PLEASE GUYS let me know when you get these, as Vicki said, many peeps do not thank you or at least let you know the RAOKS have arrived and that is unfair to the sender. Please let me know you got this DVD. Peeps who do not thank me or let me know they came, will no longer get anything in the furture, thank guys, sorry to sound like the Kindness Police.

I have to offer:
(1) Badtz-Maru pocket calculator, size of a credit card. This does not work and I don't know if it can be made to work. If you collect Hello Kitty and/or Badtz Maru, it may be useful.

Though this has been done in the past, new guidance from the PBS staff says we should NOT wish for postage (stamps) in the Raok forum. Since stamps can be returned to the PO for cash, it is like asking for money which is against the rules.
