Please use this thread to post thanks for the RAOK gifts, wishes granted, and anything else you are thankful for here on PBS.  Let's try to keep the ***RAOK*** and ***I Wish*** threads easier to check for wishes to grant and goodies to request.

Note: please be sure to thank people who grant your RAOK wishes. It's not necessary to do it here in the thread if you prefer to PM to let the sender know you received your gifts. Unfortunately, things do get lost in the mail. In addition, senders have mentioned that they have not heard from the people they have sent things to, and wonder if the items have been received. We hesitate to keep sending to someone who does not acknowledge gifts. If someone declines your request, that may be the reason.  Senders contact me in frustration, saying that they do not know if items are received and that it is usually the same people who do not correspond. Most have decided not to send to those requestors again. It is sad, but necessary to them. Please respond in some way.

If you have questions, please feel free to PM me and ask.  And thanks for using this thread to say Thank You to our wonderful wish granters.

Got a surprise envelope in mail with boxtops for the school, but plain white envelope had no return address and contained no note so I'm at a loss as to whom to thank!  Postage sticker says Fayetteville, GA. 

edited to add:  mystery solved......Thanks Cynthia D!

A wonderful thank you to Silvercat for the canceled stamps for charity.  They will be delivered next week as the receiver lives four hours away from me and I'll see her during that visit.  Of course, she can always use more so if you have some contact me.  Thanks, too, to Phyllis (emptynester) for the canceled stamps.   My heartfelt thanks to Lisa for the cancelled stamps.  My friend can use them for her charity.  Am now focusing most on RAOKs in our local area.  Assembled a box of canned food that I am delivering to the food pantry and giving fresh food to those who have helped us in one way or another.  More stampsfrom Karen (catsandroses).  Thanks so much.  And, for those who asked stamps  from other countries are funneled to a niece who is a stamp collector.  And, yes, the arm is still giving me trouble.  Darn, it's my dominant arm, too, and I would have to be left handed!

Thanks Sandy,  I requested some of the free wildflower seeds.  Hopefully I can keep the deer out of them.

Thank you, LISA N.  I came home from work today and on my porch were 4 HUGE boxes.  I thought, "What in the world did I order?" 
I can't tell you how overwhelmed I was to open them and find them full of gorgeous items for the prom.  THANK YOU so much for your generosity.
 
I teach in a low socioeconomic area on Long Island.  Students will be invited to the high school library, during April, to take dresses, shoes, and matching accessories to offset the expenses of the prom.  Thanks to all members that have sent things, for making a difference in the lives of my students.
