This is where we post what we have to give away at no cost or obligation to the person receiving..... Please do not offer to pay the person sending the RAOK. That defeats the purpose of the RAOK. Pay it forward!

For our purposes, a Random Act of Kindness (to be referred to as a RAOK) is defined as something nice one PBS member does for another PBS member with no credits or money changing hands! The idea is for people to post items they are willing to send another member FREE of charge or credits (including shipping). This is a great way to make someone's day at the same time that you can declutter your house of things you no longer need/use but weren't sure you wanted to discard. NOTE: Some of us don't remember every member's nickname, so it is helpful to write that by your address label, when you send a RAOK, to make it easier for receiving members to thank you. Please REMEMBER to thank members as some items do get lost in mail and we want to know that our USPS is doing their job!

The way to do this, is to list items to this thread that you are willing to send as RAOKs the way we list damaged books/ARCs/etc. in the Book Bazaar, and make them first come, first serve. When an item has been spoken for, please cross it off or delete it from your post. You might want to show who got it but that's up to you. Just make sure you update as frequently as possible so that no one is disappointed. Please everyone just use one post each and keep it updated. NOTE: Before posting a ROAK, please check this month's *** I Wish thread to see if you are able to fill a members' Wish, first. This is especially true for Coke codes, boxtops for education, etc.

If you see something you'd like, PM the member with your address. To post things you are wishing for, see the *** Monthly I WIsh thread.*** And to keep these threads clean and easy to read, please use the ***Monthly Thank you thread*** to thank people for things you have received. Always let the members know, either in a PM or Thank You that you rec'd the item so they know it's not lost.

Obviously since RAOKs are free but cost the sender shipping, if you request a RAOK from someone and they aren't able to ship it for a while, please be patient! Please mark out items as they are taken so other members are not disappointed

If you have questions, please feel free to PM me and ask.

I have 6 addresses that I do send to, but this week, I got 19 sets of inserts.  
May not get coupons every week, but will send what I can.

I have a big box of black elastic hair bands from Goody- the kind you use when doing African-American hair or cornrows.

I also have a bunch of glass pony beads (clear, black, yellow and red all mixed together) which were originally being used on my partner's cornrows, but could also be used for beading/regalia.

I also have a peppermint scalp spray and hair teas for dreadlocks. Pending


Can you tell my partner changes hairstyles often?


It may take me a while to ship all this out, as I just shipped 17+ books and have about 10 more book requests to do.
