Make-A-Wish Foundation (pg. 2)

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."

How Can You Help The Make-A-Wish Foundation?

Volunteer. If you have some extra time on your hands, and there is a Make-A-Wish chapter in your area, (you can find out on their Web site,) then make a call to find out what you can do. If volunteering isn't something you'd be up for, why not organize a penny or bottle drive at your school? All the proceeds can go directly to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and you'll have a great thing to add to your r

Two years ago my parents broke up. I was never really the same after that point. My mother she began to just not care about anything. She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting

theres this guy that i really REALLY like, im not sure if he likes me back. i put my mobile # on a piece of paper and slipped it in his locker, he hasn't texted or called me yet. Today at lunch i asked his friend to ask if he likes anyone but his friend keeps lying to me and won't tell me if he said anything. The guy and I were best friends in 5th grade but now that we're in different classes we don't talk much anymore. My friends said that i have a chance with him and that we have a lot in common, but im pretty sure he likes this other girl but im also pretty sure he likes me. I want to make a move but i don't wanna end our friendship i don't know what to do.

It's good to have both to talk too about things. But, what's the point of being with someone if you can't trust them enough to even tell them things?
