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.

    ​Dear Dish-It,              I have a huge crush on this really cute boy named Austin. He is so sweet and shares many character traits as me. I am super worried since next year we have our first dance and I'm worried about if he'll ask me. But, that's beyond the point. His best friends keep telling me that he is madly in love with me so I really want to talk to him. I am so worried about what will happen though. We are already great friends and I don't want to ruin what we have no. I am so confused. Please, please help! :love :mad :sad PS. Did I mention that I have a HUGE crush on him?                        Sincerely, Love-Sick and Confused Youre worried about a dance for next year? ​Anyway, just talk to him, and maybe even tell him how you feel.
