|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. Remember this is a PUBLIC forum, meaning anyone (not just members) can see what is posted here. Please do not post last names, addresses, or postal tracking numbers here, in order to protect the privacy of our participants.
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 -
Reminder about the use of Media Mail
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!

I hope it is okay to post this here (if not pls let me know and I'll remove the post). Sis and I love going to the local Goodwill Stores to browse. They began getting in lots of sewing patterns ($0.77 each), fabrics, yarns, cross stitch supplies (kits, floss, etc.) and an assortment of craft items. I don't mind spending a few $ to send out some "happy" packages but I'm not sure of what items might be wanted by the ladies here. So, if you would like for me to watch for you some items would you please pm me a list. Thank you.

Don't faint, all you original RAOKers, yes, the Sheeplady appears for a brief visit!
Went to an estate sale and got a box lot of cards I cannot use. (Always looking for some with sheep, you know). These are very beautiful but very religious cards. All from Sacred Heart or other Catholic missions, with mass intentions inside etc. So those to give away, as well as a few other things as follows:
4)1 Sacred Heart of Jesus blessed medal (picture of Jesus)
5) card with prayers for healing from Capuchin Friars
Added 10/13 -
6) pkt. of 11 small ( 3X4") blank thank you notes, 'Thank You' and yellow flower design on front, but NO envelopes
Please PM with your info if interested. I have surely jinxed my internet service by doing this, ..... so if you don't hear back right away, be patient - our normal time for repairs is 6 days ( how nice to know we're normal!! )

*UPDATE - Thanks everyone! That was fast!!*
I have the following tea bags to offer. I didn't care for the Camomile and the other I'm just tired off drinking...I'm a coffee drinker, but I am trying to embrace tea. It's a learning curve!
Both are in individually wrapped sachets. I think I have 8-10 bags of each, so if anyone would like to try a few or all, let me know.
Please include your address in the the PM. Thank you!
