|Page: Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
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 orcredits(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 youraddress 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 have Coke codes to give away, please do not post the actual code here, just post that you have them to give . Otherwise, the threa gets full of members trying them and being disappointed. Better yet, just go post some to those who wish for them in the I Wish thread. That's a really nice surprise!!
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. Although most of us feel it is better to give than to receive, still, we like to know our post office delivers!
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.

Everything is gone! :D
Like with last month, life is still a little crazy at the moment. So please forgive any delay I might have in responding to your PM or delay in shipping. I promise to do everything as quickly as I can but real life sometimes has a habit of getting in the way, doesn't it? Thanks for your understanding in advance!

I know this sounds random, but maybe someone has a use for these:
1. Recipe cards from Easy Everyday Cooking for: Chocolate Turtle Cheesecake, Parslied Potatoes, Banana Nut Muffins, and Cheesy Garlic Bread (all to one person)
These are extras I made that I didn't use and didn't want to throw away, but thought someone else might find a use for them. I used them for cupcake toppers and bookmarks and the numbers to label entries for a contest
Please PM me with what you are interested in and your addie.
