|Page: Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
Welcome to the Random Acts of Kindness thread, also known as the RAOK place. This is where we post things to give away to others, asking NOTHING in return but a thank you. No money or credits are exchanged. We give freely, at our own expense. If you see something you’d like, PM the member with your mailing info. If you are the one mailing, please be sure to put full postage on any packages you send. Members have reported receiving "gifts" with postage due.
Please note that we must abide by PBS rules - NO buying, selling or advertising allowed.
For liability reasons, sorry, but no medications of any kind may be posted in this forum. This includes prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and supplements.

RAOK Tips -
Before you post something to give away, check the ***I Wish*** thread --- someone may already be asking for it!
If you mark "taken" by your items that have been asked for, please put the word TAKEN in another color by that item, so it's easily apparent to our members that something is no longer available. This avoids disappointments and keeps you from getting more requests for an item that has already been claimed. Or, just edit your post to delete that item.
If one of us contacts you about changing your post, please understand that we have to follow PBS rules and guidelines. Often we have to ask someone to change or delete a post because of that. New things come up here all the time. If something is not appropriate, we will tell you so, and ask you to change it. Remember that the PBS team does oversee the forums. They edit posts and have been known to suspend accounts. We hate to have that happen to our fellow RAOKers when we can take care of problems ourselves.
RAOK reminders for people requesting something that is offered here -
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to PM me and ask. We are always happy to be of help to members of the RAOK forum, new or old. Thanks for participating in this great part of PBS! Enjoy!
Due to lack of postage have to close this post. Can still do a couple but as far as I can do until next month. Thank you to everyone who contacted me!!!

I have A LOT of unused Christmas cards. I am happy to send 5 to 20 cards (depending on what I have) per requestor. Please tell me what you need / have in mind and I will do my best to accomodate. Some examples of what I have: Funny, cartoony, some with animals, some strictly religious (for example Nativity scene), there are some that I would call a "Catholic" style (I am referring to Mary, Joseph and Jesus - having distinct halos.). Also some are more subtle, but still have scripture inside or outside. Some are more "seasonal" or "holiday" than Christmas. Also snowmen, sleighs, town scenes, churches, wildlife, puppies and kittens. All different styles of Christmas trees.
I will try to fit cards to anyone who requests them, I would just like to spread them around.
Also, cards that originally came in boxes are not in them anymore, I had combined them in shoebox sized bins, so I will do my best with corresponding envelopes.

I work shipping/receiving and I have saved way more plastic bags that one person needs. I have various sizes of ziploc ones that would be perfect for shipping books of all sizes.
I also have non zip loc bags that small motors were in. They are clean and would be able to fit hardcover books.
If you're interested in some, please PM me.
Depending on interest, I may not be able to take care of everyone at once, but will definitely try to take care of everyone that shows interest.
I have some items to offer. If you would like any of these, please pm your address:
