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 (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 monetary donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as stamps,  pop can tabs, etc., but not for money. This includes '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 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.

I wish everyone a most Happy and Blessed May! http://theartmad.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Happy-May-Day-Flowers-1.png That is always (every month) my most sincere wish. :)

My other May wishes are almost all mail related. I respectfully do request that anything come from a smoke free home.

Thank you to the friends on here who have made me return address labels in the past. If any of you know how to make them, I would really appreciate it. Let me know if there are choices and I will pick. That would actually be fun to choose, of course a surprise awesome, too, whatever is easier for you. :)

Second May Wish is for postage stamps, even one or two extras that you have would be truly appreciated and I promise will be used to send cheer. Related to stamps but not postage :) I have run out of my very favorite Care Bear Stamp Stickers. I would appreciate any of you keeping an eye out for them. This is what they look like: http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/7/8/3/5/3/1/webimg/606317011_o.jpg Any original bears would be bear-y special :) ETA: At this time, I sincerely don't need any other stickers. I need to be sure the ones I have are being used. Lol, I may not say this again any time soon but it's true now. :)

Finally, as I shared in the April/May birthday thread, my birthday is coming up in a couple weeks. Any cards, post-cards, e-cards, even a Birthday PM would be lovely.

Not mail related, if any of you come across some summery or Christian wall décor (to be hung on my bedroom wall) that would be awesome. I have three patches of blue sky/cloud bulletin board paper covering plaster splotches and old nail holes on my wall. A dear friend suggested some sort of kite cut out for the clouds or maybe a friendly bird. Doesn't also have to necessarily belong in the sky. Favorite cartoon friends are Winnie the Pooh and Friends (not so much Eyeore) and original Care Bears (thank you to a sweet friend who took the time and care to draw me two care bears for my wall)

 Thank you for reading and this last month welcoming me back here, too. Have an awesome weekend. God Bless You! :)

Here is my May list:

Odd request: a contour pillow if anyone has a spare and it isn't too expensive to ship. My husband is recovering from viral encephalitis and is having a lot of issues with neck stiffness and could use one.

Rubber bands, bread ties, chip clips, anything like that.

Anything related to Teen Titans, Frozen, Paw Patrol, Bubble Guppies.

A cross for our living room.

Anything related to interior and or fashion design for my 15 year old.

Odd request, but if anyone has any size large scrub tops with the pockets, I could use them.

Any PS3 games you don't want.

Shoe Holder (the ones that hang and hold several pair of shoes)

I would love:

heart Starbucks star codes (found on packages)

I'm not asking for much but I do ask that you try to do something nice for a stranger this month :) Perhaps hold a door open for them, or compliment or even just smile at them would make them feel extra special :)

Happy May everyone! Can't believe the year is flying by this fast. And a happy birthday to those with May birthdays.

I am wishing for the following

1.Stickers and stationary. I use the stickers whenever I send anything out and my little sisters write pen pals. 

2.Perfume or beauty items. These can be samples or regular items. 

3.I am wishing for a few DVD's but this is only if you have an extra. With being so far from a regular town, these are how I am able to watch series, and some harder to find things, etc. LT Dan Band for the Common Good, The Mentalist Season 2, Matlock Season 2, and Mrs Miracle. 

4.Coupons for restaurants as well as cereal(with a family of 8 we go through a lot), cat food, and any misc. coupons. I normally pass on the extras I don't use to the program at my local library.

Thanks in advance!!

Happy May and happy birthday to everyone born in May! :) My wish list for May is first for prayer on May 24th. This is a very difficult day for me and I would really appreciate prayers to get thru it. Also, if anyone has any Christian cds like Betty Jean Robinson, old timey music, or teaching or preaching cds I would love them to listen too, if you have any extras. Yarn. I'm starting to crochet and I love it.  Body sprays like Calgon's morning glory, jean nate, or bath & body. Used or samples are great too.Also, looking for some placemats or cloth napkins if someone has some they are not using anymore.  Thank you for reading. Blessings to all!

My wishes for this lovely month are:

- Coke codes 

- Any toys for a 1 year-old girl 

- This one is my unusual request. I love the original Addams Family 1960s tv show and would be so glad to have either season 1 or season 2 on dvd or anything else original Addams Family related (I loved the remake movies too but I have those). I also am really into the original drawings by Charles Addams that I've been looking up online and would love anything to do with them too.

Merry May everyone! Here are my wishes for this month: 

A keychain. I lost my keys and I had to get a key made for my truck and I no longer have my awesome keychains that keep me from losing my keys. I love horses, chickens, rubber ducks, huskies, etc. But I'm not picky. Any cool keychain to help keep me from losing them (I've had a TBI and I lose a LOT of things)

Notepads and Post-its, as always. Along with the losing things, I also need to make lists to accomplish every day tasks. 

Scrap pieces of ribbons, lace or long thin scraps of fabric. I'm having a hand-fasting soon and one of the favors we would like to make for our guests are wands made from sticks collected from the woods with ribbons and lace tied to the ends.

I haven't had cats in years , and have missed them so I'm excited ! I was wondering if RAOKers would help me come up with some creative names for my new kitties.  Thank You ! Send me a PM with your names !  🐱🐱🐱
