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 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.

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, you might want to 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.

Sometimes, it's the little things that make a person smile! cool

Any questions, please feel free to PM me.

Subject: Keep checking, more added as I unpack!

Dog food coupons

If I come across more items I will update.

Just came accross two items I have two of the Merlin Mission chapter books for kids. We bought a set at a garage sale for my son, and ended up with two copies of some of the books, minus some he needed though. We can't post these because they don't have the dust cover, so I'm offering thru RAOK.

#33 Carnival at Candlelight

Christmas in Camelot Gone!!

As I said they are missing the dust covers, but still very good condition.


PM me what your interested in and I will mail right away. Thanks!

I have extras of some Christian bookmarks that I made for a church retreat this weekend -- anybody want one? 

Photo: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v89/catlingmex/Artwork/BookmarksCRHP.jpg

These are lino prints from linoleum I had carved a few years back.  Ink on cardstock.

Available are the four designs in the picture (Our Lady of Guadalupe, amen, small cross, large cross) in red, yellow, orange, brown, light blue, turquoise, bright pink, maroon, light green, dark green, purple -- but I don't have every design in all those colors!  PM me with your preferred design (and give a second choice, just in case), and tell me 3 or 4 colors you like, and I'll see what I can do.  Oh, and don't forget to include your snail mail address!

(Since I will be on the retreat all this weekend, I may not PM you back about this until next week, so please be patient.)


ETA (Oct. 6):  No more of either of the cross designs are now available.  I do still have several Our Lady bookmarks left, and a very few of the Amen ones.  Get 'em while the gettin's good!

Everything taken!  Thanks everyone!

A small (about 8 inches by 6 inches) dreamcatcher with brown and white feathers and beads and the "dreamcatcher" legend on a card.

A 12 piece Cheshire Cat puzzle (illustration, not the AiW movie) in a small cardboard box - like an oversized match box.  The pieces are SMALL and could be a choking hazard for a house with children who still eat random items.

A 24 piece Easter bunny puzzle in a box about the size of a deck of cards.  These pieces are a little larger, but I still wouldn't give them to toddlers.

A 24 piece puzzle of a photo of lots of lady bugs in a box about the size of a deck of cards.  These pieces are a little larger, but I still wouldn't give them to toddlers.

A 100 piece puzzle of the "Pawprints" bunnies -- looks like an illustration of a mother bunny and lots of children.  These pieces are also small enough to be a choking hazard for little kids.

A pen with a crafted feathered pink flamingo on top of it.  It's very cute, and I'm sure would be a kitteh win when you're writing with it.

I have two blank journals.  One is small (approx 60 pages) with a picture of a cat on the front, and the other is bigger (about the size of a fiction hardcover) with 300+ pages.  Both have a few pages torn out at the front.  Prefer to send to two different people.

I have 2 earring holders made from plastic window screen. They have a rod pocket at the top for a small dowel or you could work them onto a hanger somehow. they are black with pink beaded ribbon on the ends. I made these for a craft show and have 2 left. They'd make grreat gifts for a young teen girl. Just add a pair or two of dangly earrings!
