|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 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 rules -
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!
Good Evening my dear RAOK (PBS)members!
Well, it's been a good long haul doing the RAOK forum and before that the RAOK. I guess I was with some of you for 5 years, more or less. Some of you may remember I worked about two year alone. Claire and Jeanne were kind enough to join in and now, I will leave it in their good hands. I will watch the forum and may answer wishes from time to time. Please, all who have become good friends, keep in touch. I am having knee surgery in Oct and Sept is my birthday month. See you all down the road.
Hugs and much love to all,
Irene, sending thanks and good wishes your way. Happy Birthday!! Hope it's a blessed one for you. And as you convalesce from the knee surgery in October, please do check in to the forums, especially to keep us in the loop as you progress, and to post as you can. Many of us will miss you and will anticipate hearing from you again "down the road".
Best to you!!
