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 (though common sense is appreciated!); you never know what will turn up.

We must all abide by these PBS rules :
You may not wish for money, or monetary donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as stamps, pop can tabs, etc., but not for money. This includes 'gofundme' and other fund-raising events.
No buying or selling or advertising. No spam posts.
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. Sorry, but you may not ask for free books of any kind. (Unpostable books are given away in the damaged book thread of the Bazaar and sometimes in the RAOK thread.  There is also a Damaged/Unpostable Virtual Box in the Games forum.)

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. You could pay it forward by granting 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 come to this ***I Wish*** thread, you see wishes. In the ***RAOK*** thread, it's all about 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 check in and answer your PMs. It's frustrating when people want to grant your wishes and don't hear from you!
PLEASE say THANK YOU to the person who grants your wish.  You may use our monthly ***Thank You*** thread, or you may acknowledge what you have received via a personal PM to the member(s) who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Check the RAOK thread before you post wishes -- the thing you want 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, then 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 that 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.

I still enjoy receiving older jewelry pieces - broken or whole - for my crafting. I can also use old keys or other metal 'bits'. Again, I want to thank those of you who have supported 'my habit' all the way through. I have so much fun designing panels and decorating with these supplies you have willingly offered up for my amusement. Thanks!

Anyone handy with making jewelry?

I broke a semiprecious stone necklace today and need it restrung.  It is on a flexible metal wire.  I gathered up all the beads.  I need someone with experience to restring them for me.  

Thanks, Ani!

Hi all!

The librarian shocked me with her quick use of the toys and stickers I have given her so far for the Reading Rewards Program.
While I have the rest of the year covered, I am a bit low in quantity of items for the kids.  Therefore, if you happen to have any of the following laying around from a carnival, or leftovers from a kid's birthday party grab bags, we would love them!


New or like new toys for elementary school kids

Trading cards

Anything else a kid would like - Star Wars, Minions, Minecraft, Fairies and Monster High are particularly popular with the kids

*Please, NO religious items, no makeup or Christmas/Easter/St.Patrick's/Halloween items, thank you!

For myself, I am always looking for vintage items from the 1950's and earlier - sewing patterns, crochet patterns, knitting patterns, buttons, fashion catalogs, vintage clothing, hats, costume jewelry or accessories.

Also, any BoxTops for Education are also warmly welcome, thank you!

I also wish everyone a Blessed Easter and Happy (and Hoppy :) March!

I would appreciate some address labels with a cute image on them. If you have a program with particular images and want me to choose let me know. Otherwise, would love most anything from Christian to Spring-y to cute pups (I'm not a kitty fan really but am a big fan of our own Silvercat :D)

Jeanne reminded me (but please send her coupons first :) I am always on the lookout for Listerine FLOSS coupons. I don't use any other Listerine product.

A Easter (I prefer Religious) card would be egg-cellent and most welcome :)

Thank you so much! God Bless You!

Happy March,  Happy St. Patricks Day, Happy Spring and Happy Easter to everyone!  A month full of new beginnings and uplifting spirit!

My wishes are:

Small prizes for our school

Empty plastic M&M tubes

Coupons for:  Pepsi, Land O Lakes butter,  Bob Evans side dishes

Prayers for two of my special friends who are moving away for work since WV seems to be shutting its doors to jobs - one is going to Canada to mine and the other is going to North Carolina.

Prayers for peace within myself.  This week is a hard one - my son would have been 37 on the 4th of this month but passed 7 years ago in a motorcycle accident when a drunk walked out in front of him playing chicken with the motorcycle.

Campbell's The Labels for Education® program is winding down.  If you have a stash, get them to a school so that they can be used by August.
