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 big, you never know what will turn up.

We must abide by PBS rules :
You may not wish for money, or monetary donations for any charities ( you may ask for things you collect for charities, like stamps, can tabs etc., but not for money)
No buying or selling or advertising.
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. You may not ask for free books of any kind sorry. (Unpostables are given away in the damaged book thread of the Bazaar and sometimes in the RAOK thread)

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. Try to pay it forward, maybe grant a wish yourself.

Please limit your wishes t0 nomore than 10. Lists get very long. You can alwasys edit as you go along.
Unlike many other forums, we ask that you do NOT reply within the threads. We do everything by PM between members. This keeps the threads clutter free and easy to use. When you go to the wishes, you see wishes. In the RAOK, it's all things we are giving away - simple and easy.
 And please do not post your address in the thread - it's all done via PM.
Please, if you post wishes, be prepared to check in and answer your PMs. It's frustrating when people want to grant your wishes and don't hear from you!

You do need to say THANK YOU. See our monthly ****thank you thread****, or you may acknowledge what you have received via a personal PM to the members who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Tips :
Check the RAOK forum before you post wishes -- things 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, 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 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.

Hi everybody! I am new to this thread. smiley I think this whole forum is a great idea.

My wishlist is:

anything with owls

anything mickey mouse/minnie mouse

anything hello kitty

extra ziplock baggies

any kind of extra yarn bits (I crochet and use tons of scraps!)

stationary of any kind

stickers of any kind

That's all I can think of. I see some members collect box tops for education on here. Since my daughter is not in school yet I have no use for the ones I have and usually throw them away. I will start saving them for anyone who wants them. Thanks!

Hi all! Hard to believe March is here already. For this month I would love any of the following. 

Makeup and beauty products. This can be samples(I travel a lot so samples are great for that), perfumes, lotions, shampoo, etc. I don't mind some things that have been opened. 

Stationary, notepads, notecards, etc. My little sisters write pen pals so they enjoy getting new stuff. 

Jewelry of any kind except earrings. 

Anything irish or celtic. Love the scottish:) 

Thanks in advance~

Time to add my usual Sheeplady wishes-

         You know I always wish for stationery. I don't need note cards at the moment, but any tablets, loose sheets, pkts. or boxes of writing paper will be used and appreciated. It will go all over the US and to some far off parts of the world.  I'm so happy to see a few others asking for it now too. That means people are STILL writing - hooray!!

       I do collect sheep things, but the inside flock is really  huge after so many additions from friends here. So I will limit that to note cards or writing paper, things like that. If you have something sheepy for me, let me know - might take it , might pass.

       Anything to do with Saint Bernards - especially note cards etc. Hard to find.

       I love pens - fat pens, skinny pens, ad pens - any in blue or black ink are welcome.      Just got a wonderful supply, so removing the wish for pens, thanks.

Thanks for looking and for participating in our RAOK forum, such a great part of PBS.

Here is my Wish List:

- Anything cross stitching related, but especially patterns (any kind of patterns as I cross-stitch for the online charity LoveQuilts and a wide variety of themes are requested to be stitched, though please, no Christmas/winter/angel patterns, I'm all set on those!); I'd especially like those 'One Nighter' pamphlets 

3D puzzle or wood model or any kind of kit or model for building a model tower/building; I'd really like one of the Empire State Building but I'd be happy for anything that looks like it belongs in a modern day city; even if all the pieces aren't there or it has been used before, it doesn't matter to me, I would still be happy to have it

Small thin pins, for the purposes of pinning down completed cross stitch for framing (would also be happy for just any advice on what kind of pins and where to find them)

- Anything related to dragons: statues, posters, postcards, calendars, toys, figures, anything remotely related to dragons (honestly, I want to write a book featuring dragons and surrounding myself in dragon memorabilia is wonderful inspiration; would also welcome any other mythical creatures but mostly dragons)

- Any Halloween decorations you're looking to get rid of! I love Halloween and am looking to really build up my collection of decorations 



I have wishes for costume pieces. I know they're long shots but it never hurts to ask, right? All of these would be for an adult, nothing kid-sized, thanks!

- Yellow rain coat, like the classic basic bright yellow rain coat that's iconic to the point of being a stereotype

- Yellow (or white that can be dyed yellow) jumpsuit/full bodysuit; skin tight or baggy, either way works

- Black or purple or blue witch/wizard hat, tall and pointy; it's okay if it is worn and raggedy, that's the look I'm going for

- Red or purple full length skirt

Like I said, I know it's a long shot but I figured I should just put it out there in the world :) If you have any ideas on how I can get my hands on them for cheap, I would also welcome those suggestions.


Thanks for reading my wish list! Happy March, everyone!

I have another wish for this month if that is ok. I suffer from depression and bipolar disorder. My wish is for prayers to help deal with these issues. I am on medications but it is still very tough to live with. I have had a rough couple of months and some very trying times and could really use the prayers. I am also Diabetic and having issues with kidney failure. Thank you all and God bless you.
