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 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 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.

As always, I can use Purina (dog and cat) weight circles and IAMS UPC codes.

I am also providing expired coupons for the military expired program.  I wouldn't send them just by themselves, but if you are sending to me anyway, (especially from my regular coupon wants on the coupon thread); I'll send them on.

I can also use any tote/shopping bags.  I'm donating weekly bags of "stuff" to our local pantry and thought it would be nice if they were presented in something nicer than a regular plastic bag or box.

Hi everyone!

Here are some wishes I have.....

1) Any cd you no longer want.... I'm looking for really upbeat and happy music to get me through the day or relaxation sleep type CDs to help me sleep at night.. (Just nothing religious please)

2.) Here I guess is my long shot... I'm looking for fun glasses to drink out of...like the Care Bears, the Smurfs, Charlie Brown ect....or if you have a fun glass you think I'd like... They really make me smile each time I reach into the cabinet to get a glass to drink...

3.) I collect turtles and frogs if you have anything that you don't want anymore... (No stuffed animals though...I have so many!)

4.) I'm always looking for coupons for Red Lobster and for Arm and Hammer Clump and Seal Cat Litter...

5.)  Fun colored index cards that are blank on one side...

Thanks for considering!
