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

Its my best friends birthday party on Friday and I still don't know what to get her. She's turning 12 and she loves: guardians of the galaxy and Shopping at Newlook. she wears jewellery quite likes hair and beauty products and enjoys watching movies, going to music concerts ( she likes Taylor Swift) and apple products. I'd rather not use gift cards because they're like the lazy option out and she's my Best friend but if you can think of a great brand for her then ok.

Talk to your parents about it. Tell them you didn't like your Christmas gift, and don't let your brother boss you around. Your parents can, your brother can't. Your parents gave you life, sorry to tell you but they can do anything they want if it's legal. But your brother can't. Let your parents know that you shouldn't have gotten in trouble for the stuff he doesn't. Tell them he makes you feel really awful and you don't like it. If they're good people they'll understand.

I would stop being friends with her. I mean she should understand that it'd be mean to do that. It's hard to help your friend get through a breakup when you're dating the same person. Plus you don't even know if she was trying to break you guys up so she could be with him.

You want to know if he likes you or not? Just ask him. It's not as bad as people say-I mean, it's a question. It looks like he does, so he probably does. It's not that big of a deal.

Talk to your friend. Tell her that this is the first guy that's ever liked you but you don't want her to get mad at you for stealing him from her. But understand she likes him too so don't get mad if she doesn't want you dating him. Nicely decide which of you should get him instead of the other. Chances are she might be thinking the same thing.
