I've only been in the RAOK club since about March, but am very active, sometimes sending out 6-12 wishes or surprises in a week!  We've noted less activity in the wishing  and "available stuff" threads during the summer, but  many of us send out monthly treats or weekly coupons once we learn of a person's favorite things, needs, or collectible wishes.

 This month there have been a rash of people "wishing" for things, but when I PM them to ask a question and/or get their address, there is no response.  If you're going on vacation, please list that at the bottom of your wishlist, something like 'going on vaca 1-7 August'. Then everyone knows why you're not responding or not acknowledging receipt.    THANKS for being part of the "KINDNESS CAMPAIGN", the program started by the Univ of Colorado in Colorado Springs.

I have had that happen to me before. I always try and PM the person who sent me the item( I don't always post in the Thank You thread) , and occasionally I do forget, but I had someone never respond to me about whether the item came in or not.  It is common courtesy to thank someone. Very hard to keep sending things out when the person doesn't even say thanks.
