|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 post last names, addresses, or postal tracking numbers here, in order to protect the privacy of our participants.
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 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!

I'll be decluttering my studio this weekend... it's supposed to rain!!
I have (8) eight 6x8 envelopes which I will fill with various tissue papers, printed papers (possibly stamped or painted by myself), book pages (foreign languages), stickers, stamps and various paraphenalia which can be used for scrapbooking and/or collaging...
first come, first serve.
[list of names: Melissa, Michelle, Gina, OllieAnn, Connie, Jessica, Andrea, Jennifer ] when pming your address let me know what your favorite colors are as I may have some plain colored papers as well or this is a long shot but one never knows perhaps there is something particular you're looking for: I have loads of papers... I'll try my best!!

Here's what I have to give away:
2. I have a few coupons for the new claritin nasal spray if anyone wants one.
4. I will send two people costume metal bracelets-they are for someone with a small or not thick wrists. Don't have all colors so give me a preference.
5. I will make one person a pocket letter-just started making these so bear with me.
6. I can also make two people a bookmark or magnet by me if you haven't got one from me before. Will need to know hobbies and two color choices.
Going to try to help with wishes when time permits. Work schedule is long and erratic..haven't had time to clean out more items. Make sure your address is in your pm..Thanks.
