|Page: Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
This is where we post what we have to give away at no cost or obligation to the person receiving..... Please do not offer to pay the person sending the RAOK. That defeats the purpose of the RAOK. Pay it forward!
For our purposes, a Random Act of Kindness (to be referred to as a RAOK) is defined as something nice one PBS member does for another PBS member with no credits or money changing hands! The idea is for people to post items they are willing to send another member FREE of charge or credits (including shipping). This is a great way to make someone's day at the same time that you can declutter your house of things you no longer need/use but weren't sure you wanted to discard. NOTE: Some of us don't remember every member's nickname, so it is helpful to write that by your address label, when you send a RAOK, to make it easier for receiving members to thank you. Please REMEMBER to thank members as some items do get lost in mail and we want to know that our USPS is doing their job!
The way to do this, is to list items to this thread that you are willing to send as RAOKs the way we list damaged books/ARCs/etc. in the Book Bazaar, and make them first come, first serve. When an item has been spoken for, please cross it off or delete it from your post. You might want to show who got it but that's up to you. Just make sure you update as frequently as possible so that no one is disappointed. Please everyone just use one post each and keep it updated. NOTE: Before posting a ROAK, please check this month's *** I Wish thread to see if you are able to fill a members' Wish, first. This is especially true for Coke codes, boxtops for education, etc.
If you see something you'd like, PM the member with your address. To post things you are wishing for, see the *** Monthly I WIsh thread.*** And to keep these threads clean and easy to read, please use the ***Monthly Thank you thread*** to thank people for things you have received. Always let the members know, either in a PM or Thank You that you rec'd the item so they know it's not lost.
Obviously since RAOKs are free but cost the sender shipping, if you request a RAOK from someone and they aren't able to ship it for a while, please be patient! Please mark out items as they are taken so other members are not disappointed
If you have questions, please feel free to PM me and ask. We are happy to help our RAOKer friends, old and new!

Like basketball? I also have a card showing the schedule of the Men's & Womens Teams Basketball games for 2011-2012. Where are the teams from? Why, from Texas A&M University - Gig 'em, Aggies! The top of the card has info about a local Aggie Realtor, which can easily be cut off and the magnet attached to the back glued to the back of the rest. Or you can leave it as it - As this is the last season TAMU will be in the Big 12, it might be worth alot of money in the years to come!
Please PM me if interested.

Hi! I have one free book available to someone who wants it. It is a Love Inspired book by Jillian Hart titled "His Country Girl". It has no ISBN so it can't be put on here for trade. First come, first serve.

If anyone is interested in Erin's offer of the Special Olympics Scarf Project, but you're not the first to request it,
Offers this month:
I have a bunch of coupons for Gerber graduates food for babies, probably some other baby related coupons..would like to mail these all to a mom asap so they don't expire.
Also an unpostable book..has some watermarks some of the pages, but still readable if anyone would like it. I hate to just throw it away. The title is "Understanding Sibling Rivalry: The Brazelton Way" by Joshua D. Sparrow. A good parenting book I guess if you have more then one child as I do.
P.S. I know I promised Jeanne some scrapbooking stuff last month...have not forgotten you! Those are going out in the mail this week!
We have just been so busy with kids stuff and activities. I will do my best to get stuff out in the mail asap from now on.
