Post what you have to give away in this thread.

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 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.

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, you might want to 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.

Sometimes, it's the little things that make a person smile!

Any questions, please feel free to PM me.


P.S.   Idea from another member:  help out the sender of RAOK by putting item in subject to make search easy!  Thanks REK!

Sacred and Profane by Faye Kellerman (slight discoloration, still readable)

Two human skeletons, charred beyond recognition, are identified by a forensic dentist as teenage girls. Decker's quest pulls him deep into the crack dens of Hollywood and painfully close to the children of the streets and a nightmare world he must make his own.

Just a reminder -

These members collect expired coupons  to send to military bases.   Coupons should be no more than 3 months past date, please.  Just PM them for their address and send a bunch when you can.  Much easier than posting here and waiting for someone to request them.   This is a great help to our military families.

I am still making friendship bracelets and anklets. I use crochet thread to knot them macrame style, and sometimes beads are added as well. If you'd like one of these, please let me know!
