Yea!  It's September.  Maybe it will cool off.    I will be gone from 18-26 Sept.

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.

Do you shop at Krogers? (or Fred Meyers       Frys     Gerbes     Hilander     JC     King Soopers      Owen's     Pay-less     Dillons     City Market     Smith's     QFC     Ralphs    Bakers) I have been playing the instant win thing online and there is no Kroger near us (thought there was). I have won a free WONKA® Exceptionals Bar and a free Angel Soft® 4 Regular Roll. If you shop at Krogers and would like these loaded onto your shoppers card, PM me your shoppers card number. I will load them on the website and then at your next visit to Krogers you add these items to your cart and swipe your shopper card at the register and you will get them free. PM me please if you are interested in these items.

On my unpostables list (in my signature) I have two Christian books for children: Blessings Every Day and My Best Friend Jesus. I would like to send these to one person who would like to use them with their preschool-age children. Blessings Every Day is unpostable because the pages have pulled away from the spine but is still held together by the paper that attaches the book to the cover. My Best Friend Jesus has a table of contest page ripped out but it is still with the book.I will mail these for free (no credits, etc) the next time I have a book going out or when it is convenient to drop by the post office. So if you are patient and you can use them, you can have them.

I have roughly $4.00 in fare cards for the Washington, D.C., metro. Please PM me if you can use them. taken, thanks!
