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 unusual (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 money-like items such as gift cards or postage (stamps),  including such donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as cancelled stamps, pop can tabs, etc., but you may not solicit funding. This includes donations for '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 to protect your privacy, 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.

My eldest daughter, Anastasia, is a teacher at a Christian HS in Clinton, Maryland, near DC.  One of her senior students, 17 yo Christopher Perrry, was gunned down by his mother last Thursday night in what police are calling a 'domestic dispute'.  My daughter was Christopher's drama teacher, play director, and senior class sponsor. She and her husband, who was Christopher's soccer coach and is the youth pastor for the school, are struggling with this horror  while trying to calm and provide comfort to the students who were friends, teammates, and classmates to Christopher.  Please pray for Christopher's family (23 yo sister Alexis and his father) while they try to plan his funeral and keep everyone at Grace Brethren schools in your thoughts too.

My Wish list includes:

2.)A round Spring-like tablecloth.  If you can't find one or don't have one please ignore. :)

That's it for now...thank you!

*****IMPORTANT wish,  let people know when things have arrived.   I don't expect a thanks but do want to know that things have arrived.  I sent several things last month that I have no idea if they got to their destination or not.  I love sending things to people and usually send out a good many each month but would like to know that they have reached their destinations.

I would love a blinkie to commemorate 5 years as a non smoker to replace the x-smoker blinkie in my siggie line.  

Something where there would be a blank space where I could add/change the number of years.

"Proud to be, _ years, smoke free"   Something like that..... thanks

I would also love a winter blinkie for my siggie.  I tried and failed miserably.  Something similar in size to the rest and easy to read.  Something to show I hate winter, lol.   Brr, it's too cold!   or Best part of winter is when it's over.   or Let's Skip Winter....something along those lines.

Unfortunately, I'm not so talented to do myself.

Happy March! smiley

First, I just wanna take a moment to thank everyone for making this little community so wonderful. I'm honored to be part of a group of such kind people and have made wonderful friends here. 

My wishes this month are: 

heart Paint brushes for painting details (I restore old dolls and use such brushes for their eyes and small parts) , which is basically any paint brush with small bristles.

heart Solid color pastel (light blue, pale pink, etc) scarves in any material 

heart Anything related to Snow White 

heart My long shot wish this month is for any vintage magazines - rather it be beauty, fashion, patterns, lifestyle, comic book, anything - that are 1960s, 50s or earlier.

  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.

Happy March. Thanks to Claire, I'm back in PBS for another year. I will be adding books to my bookshelf over the weekend.

My wishes for March are:

1) unusual angel items

Long shot: I need a pair of wraparound sunglasses that can be worn over glasses. I broke the pair I had. My eyes are very sensitive to light & sun, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

 Hope everyone has a great weekend.
