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.

I started making more friends so someone would be there for me and I would be there for them. Now, I don't have a BFF. Just a ton of close friends, which I like. But I don't know if I made the right choice of doubting everyone or not.Thank you my friend, maybe fear of being ignored causes this reaction from us but as we know having friends is always good and no one can deny it.I am sure you will find who you are looking for, give yourself some time.It will be fine.
