|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 ask your member friends to join you in this fun forum!
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 do so at the beginning of the line and, if possible, put the word TAKEN in another color 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!

3-D Planet: The World as Seen Through Stereograms - hardcover book. Disclaimer: I got this at a yard sale and there was mold on the jacket, so it does not come with a jacket. I wiped down the outside of the cover and it hasn't had any issues since, but I make no guarantees.
CD: Beneath the Veil by Zingaia (I only have the disc, and it has a fair number of scratches, but played all right for me)
CD: The Great Road by Metamora (Disc and both inserts, no case. The clear layer on top of the CD is wanting to peel up around the edges, but the playing surface is relatively unscratched.)
PM me if anything sounds interesting! :)

Haven't been around in a while and I missed this so! :D Here's what I've got up for grabs so far:
3x4" New Orleans Saints sticker
3x4" sticker with a frazzled kitten in a basket that says "Basket Case"
Small tourist book of photos of Tahquamenon Falls from, I would guess, the late 1970s.
I'm sure I'll be adding more goodies as the month rolls along. :) PM me if you see anything you want.

Wow! What a response. Guess I'd better do this again in another month! The books are gone and I will be emailing those who requested books. Only the first requests will be honored. I am amazed at which books people chose.
