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 for monetary donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as 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.

Here is my May requests. 

1.  I need some wide bias tape any color, double fold if possible, to aid me in sewing crate quilts for needy dogs/dog shelters. Also straps like you see on medical slings, or webbed belts or duffle bags, which I use in making my tote bags. I either give my bags away or donate them to shelters like the horse rescue.   Here is a link that shows the kind of bags I make for which I need things to make sturdy handles.  Thanks.

I'm still looking for a good picture of the kind of crate pad I sew.

My request is to crafters and/or de-clutterers out there.  Sometimes you dive eagerly into a craft, load up on supplies, and then the wave passes, and all the supplies are then put away and forgotten in a drawer.

I'm hoping for a paper-punch for a circle of about one inch or larger.  Maybe there's one out there just not being used anymore.  I wll make good use of it!

Thanks for reading!

My niece's 2 year old LOVED my collection of barn magnets. So much that he stuffed them down his pants before he went home. Things happened in those pants ð³ So I will be starting my collection anew. If you have a magnet with a picture/image of a barn on it, shaped like a barn, etc. and would part with it, I'd be grateful!

Hello everyone!  I can't think of a thing to wish for this month.  Just positive thoughts and prayers for Lee as we travel to Pittsburgh to see if he will be having surgery for the third time on this throat.  Hopefully we can get this fixed so he can eat properly.


My wish for everyone this month is a month of beauty and peace!

Hi everyone!

I'm beginning to make "Fidget Cushions" for Alzheimers patients to give at Christmas time.  I've purchased several items to sew onto the cushion tops, however, to keep the cost down for me, I'm reaching out to you folks to ask for two specific items. 

Key chains of any kind (the more colorful the better)

Large stoned rings (for either gender) (these can be plastic or metal)

If you're not familiar with "Fidget cushions, quilts, aprons, etc.), they are used to keep the patient's hands busy as many Alzheimers, Dimentia, stroke victims and people with ADHD are always fidgeting & have "worry hands".  The items sewn on the fabrics are "sensory" geared and will help calm those busy fingers.

Please PM me for my address if you can help me out...thanks so much!

Finally after ripping my way into another letter today I thought of something I could REALLY use!

I need a letter opener or two! The crazier the better! Does anyone have any old  'I'm tired of relocating this from that drawer to the other' letter openers??

3. Anything Wonder woman- it makes me smile and feel empowered.

4. Cds-especially any of Adele or John legend

5. Bath bombs-any smell..like to soak in the tub.

6. Any leftover scrapbook paper- I have many uses for it.

7. DVDs-anything but horror-will gladly take without a case to help with shipping.

Thanks for reading. Post your unique wishes..I might be able to help you out who knows. Have a good day! :)
