|Page: Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
This is where we post things we would like,(except money request or books by name). Please remember that we do not offer money for items we wish for because PBS frowns upon that. It also lessens the spirit of this thread and the forum. If you receive, try to give. Sometimes the littlest things can bring a smile.
Note: If I write to you about something you have requested, it is only to inform you that the request is not what this thread is about. If you wish to leave your request in this thread, that is up to you.
First: Remember: this is the place to wish. We all have wishes. If you feel someone has asked for something too large, expensive or extravagant, just ignore. Please be kind. Don't make someone feel badly. None of us know someone else's circumstances, unless we ask...........................For those of us asking, let's remember this is NOT a place to stock pantries, get all our presents for others, etc. It's a place for members to wish for items for themselves and immediate family. Also, PBS rules do not allow one to ask for money, even for charities, here. You may ask for other items, such as stamps and boxtops, etc.
Here, you list a few things you like/collect/can use. Obviously, we all like certain things like credits, wish-list books, etc. This is NOT for that kind of thing. This is for things others might have around the house that you can use (for instance if you collect postcards, bookmarks, Coke codes, or if there's a candy you love you can't find in your area, etc). ** Please remember that books, by title or genre, should not be requested in this forum(I Wish thread). There may be other places for that. If someone sends you an item, please receive it and thank the member sending it.
Please limit your list to about 10 items. Some lists are getting very long. (Remember, you can edit your list), and if someone PMs you for your address, please acknowledge and thank them when you receive whatever they send you. There is a separate thank you thread so we can keep this one clean and easy to read. It can get jumbled and hard to read with extra clutter so if we can do our best to keep it to our requests and the rare bump, that would be awesome :) It's important to thank everyone who send something either by PM and or the thank you thread so that we know the item arrived. Members do not want to send things, continously, to others who do not let them know the items have arrived.
I'm wishing for:
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

My son is teaching through the Peace Corp in Nicaragua - and besides running water he would really like to get some English workbooks to use with his students. They are high school age and learning English. The workbooks would be a much needed resource. If you have any I would appreciate a deal - he and his students would be very grateful. I am heading there in January and will take as many as I can fit in a suitcase. Thanks for your consideration.

Hi, I'm new to this, so feel free to tell me if I'm out of line!
I'm a volunteer float decorator for the Rose Parade and could really use SMALL SEALABLE CONTAINERS...does babyfood still come in jars? Those would be a perfect size.
We use a lot of dried flowers and seeds for decorating and each year we do the sign for each side with the name of our city and the city seal...for this we use EXTREMELY fine ground flowers and seeds and trying to keep all the various densities and colors separate while working with glue in a warehouse type setting is a chore :)
Thanks in advance!

I could always use for the daycare center I work for:
Construction paper....any colors are fine
Stickers.....any kind would be helpful--we use these on reward charts, potty training charts, etc...
Stencils...any kind is helpful
Laminating sheets....the kind that's self sticking and you don't need a machine for it
Coloring books....it's okay if several pages are already colored. We remove the pages for the kids to color individually.
**Possible long shot: project idea books for me to do with the kids. Used and/or old is fine as long as I can read the ideas and/or trace the pictures from them. I'm hoping to get something, though, that's aimed toward 1-3 year olds, although any kind would be helpful.
Thanks everyone! :)
