For those in dire need that require emergency aid and/or serious help we recommend visiting /r/Assistance, /r/Borrow or /r/Food_Pantry.


How to make a Post (full details):

1. Place one of the [OFFER], [REQUEST], [THANKS] or [RK] tags in your title. Tags are required.

2. Add the location you are willing to send to or are requesting from

  • Country wide = [US], [UK], [CA]
  • City / State = [US, FL], [UK, London], [CA, Toronto]
  • World Wide = [WW]
  • Online = [WWW]

3. State the item's name in the title

4. Once you've created a post, see if you qualify for flair

  • Flair FAQ

  • Click HERE to get Flair

  • [REQUESTED] and [RECEIVED] flair is mandatory!

5. Please use link flair to cross out your post once it is fulfilled.

  • Click 'flair' below your post, select the '- ~~REQUEST~~' option, then press 'Save'.

Rules:

  • Do not delete your posts. Even if they were unanswered, unfulfilled or removed.

  • No monetary requests Money feels impersonal and is often associated with scams. This includes fundraising, loans and charity. Amazon gift cards are also prohibited but wishlists are OK.

  • No advertising, buying, trading or selling, this includes referral links.

  • No voting requests This includes contests and sites whose content is based on votes.

  • Do not request items with the intent to trade or sell them.

  • Video game related requests and entries to related offers require 300 comment karma and a 2 month old account. An exception to this is if you have 'Sent' flair. No /r/FreeKarma.

  • You must post your Steam Profile ID if you request a Steam game (e.g. steamcommunity.com/id/johnsmith)

  • No Flaming, insults, derogatory comments and otherwise rude behavior. If you see a post that is inflammatory please use report function to notify a mod.

  • No mature (18+) or illegal requests.

  • Most posts for new accounts aren't allowed. Message Mods for details.

Breaking the above rules may result in a temporary or permanent ban.

  • Stay safe. Only give personal information such as address away in PM.

  • Use the search function. Many requests and offers have been made. People may still be willing to offer kindness even if their post is old.

  • Keep your post updated. Make sure you update the post so others know if your request was fulfilled or the offer was given away.

  • Remember to thank the giver. They love to know that an item was received and it is always nice to thank the person who sent you something.

  • Try to give as good as you get. Balance the number of REQUESTs you make with an equal number of OFFERs. Members will respect you more and won't think you're taking advantage of them. Heavily taking advantage may earn post removal or bans.

  • Always pay it forward! Continue the cycle of kindness by passing on the kindness offered to you in any way you can.
