Making Wishes Come True

When You Wish Upon a Star

Through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, thousands of children have been able to meet their celebrity idols. Musicians, TV and [/KWLINK 1315]movie stars, athletes and many other celebs have lent their time to help fulfill the wishes of sick children. The Dixie Chicks have been a part of ten separate wish experiences since December 2000 and when their first child, Gus, was born, Dixie Chick Emily Robison and her husband requested that instead of gifts, well-wishers donate money to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Another music sensation, Madonna, made personal, daily phone calls to a young Canadian girl after granting her wish in January 2003. Madonna also sent the girl books and "healing water."

A perfect friend according to me should always be there for you whenever you need him or her. But they should also guide you to the right path. They should understand you. They should be sweet, understanding, caring and funny. And yes, by caring and understanding I did mean a bff and not a boyfriend. My perfect friend posted on this thread right before me... her username is scarlet177.

I Feel like I should paste this here  Always remember this: Someone out there loves you. May be here online or on the other side of the world but they would care that you died. Now please put down that knife/blade or rope or gun or anything and think "do you want things to get better" or "do you want the chance of things getting better to be eliminated. Now let your scars fade and remember these words "I care"
