Make-A-Wish Foundation

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a charitable organization that grants wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses. Since their start in 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted over 97,000 wishes for children around the world.

Can Anyone Receive a Wish?

The mission of the Make-A-Wish Foundation is to, "grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy." In order for a child to qualify for a wish, their doctor must determine that they are medically qualified before their 18th birthday, (they must be diagnosed with some sort of life-threatening illness.) There are four wish categories - I wish to go..., I wish to meet..., I wish to be..., and I wish to have.... The only time a restriction will be put on a wish is if the wish-child is not physically well enough to do something. Otherwise, the sky's the limit!

Who Makes The Wishes Come True?

There are over 25,000 volunteers who help to keep the Make-A-Wish Foundation running smoothly. The foundation also relies on the generous donations of many corporations including General Motors, The Walt Disney Corporation, Delta Airlines and many more.

    No, never. Except for this once time, I took pictures of myself in different coffins so I could ask my friends which one looked best on me... not sure that's the same thing though.

    Do you have issues at school with dress code? Well, rules are rules but outside of school express yourself and whatever you feel works, wear it. If high heels and earrings are your thing then go for it. If crop tops and butt shorts describe your personality than let it be known. Guys judge and so do some Ladies but express "You!" Be yourself and don't let anyone else tell you who you are or who you have to be. I can't express to all of you how much fashion and popularity have come together these days, clothing lines have gone so far up that the personality of a person can be known by what they're wearing.
