The ONE-WISH Pledge campaign

Started in 2009 in aid of the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK has continued to gain momentum, so without any doubt I have decided to continue the campaign indefinitely.

Therefore, for every single person who makes a wish on one-wish.co.uk between the 1 July 2011 – 31 December 2012, I promise to continue to donate 1p per wish to the following charity: Make-A-Wish Foundation UK. This may not sound much but hopefully if everyone reading this pledge makes a wish and shares this with their family and friends this will soon add up. My fourth payment to the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK was made on the 1 July 2011 as promised.

Please help me to help others and thank you for your continued support…….

Does my website one-wish.co.uk make any money

I am often asked this question but I didn’t develop my website to make money, I developed it for the following two reasons, firstly to raise awareness of the Make-A-Wish Foundation who are an absolutely wonderful charitable world wide organisation, who’s sole purpose is to grant magical wishes to children and young people aged 3-17 fighting life-threatening illnesses and secondly, to reach out to everyone and anyone from the different corners of “our” world, to give them a place where they can share their innermost wish, giving each and everyone a sense of hope, letting them know that they are not alone. I hope eventually I would be able to establish a network of people and organisations who would help me to help those who genuinely need the help of others.

That is why I developed my website www.one-wish.co.uk

Many Thanks
Kind Regards

2011 ONE-WISH and beyond

First and foremost may I wish everyone a Happy New Year and may all your wishes, and dreams become a reality in 2011…….

2010 has been another fantastic year for one-wish, not only have we received over 7,000 wishes from different people, from different countries from around “our” world, but it’s given me the opportunity to meet and make many new friends, friends I would not have known if it wasn’t for one-wish.

I would just like to take this brief opportunity to mention a couple of friends I have met through one-wish who are both exceptional and wonderful people, Wendy and Tom Rees. Wendy is a BEST selling author of six books whose latest book is “Dog Lover's Daily Companion: 365 Days of Tips, Tricks, and Techniques for Living a Rich Life with Your Dog”. Wendy amazingly manages to find the time to run her own website
wendynanrees.com along with a blog which is a must visit especially if you like our four legged friends. The blog is called adogsvoyagearoundtheworld.blogspot.com and is an absolutely fantastic, fun and informative site for both adults and children alike.

Tom is a very creative guy with a vision, a vision to help others in need and is the creator and founder of
reesnetworks.com who have focused their attention and developed the largest single database of sober livings and halfway houses in the US soberlivingsearch.com with the sole purpose of helping those who truly need the help and support of others. Tom also runs his own blog dontdiecrying.com and once again I must recommend a visit to all of Tom’s sites as I believe just like I did that you will certainly gain a different and clearer perspective and understanding of life outside “our” own.

Both Wendy and Tom have become very good friends, and I am glad that thanks to one-wish that I have had the opportunity to get to know and meet these wonderful people in person.

I would also like to make a special mention for Wendy’s sister, Carol Ann Emquies who is the chairman of the Africa Schoolhouse Foundation who are committed to building sustainable school communities for children in underserved areas of Africa. Their goal is to aid the progress of learning using modern technology and environmentally conscious methods while safeguarding the traditional teachings of cultural heritage.

Thanks to Carol and her team at the Africa Schoolhouse Foundation the children of Ntulya Village now enjoy a much higher standard of education than they may otherwise have received. It’s absolutely wonderful and very inspirational to see the continued development of the facilities now being made available at the Ntulya Primary School which in turn is giving every single child the same opportunity and chance in life as those of our very own children. This is such a worthwhile organisation, and it is the children who are the true beneficiaries of such a wonderful organisation. For more information on their great work just log onto the
africaschoolhouse.org

Now back to the events on one-wish.

Events have continued to move at a pace here at one-wish during the year. We have had over 2,000 people subscribe to the one-wish mailing list to be kept in touch with the latest happenings and offerings on one-wish.

The ONE-WISH Pledge campaign which was started way back in 2009 in aid of the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK has continued to gain momentum, so without any doubt I have decided to continue the campaign indefinitely.

Therefore, for every single person who makes a wish on one-wish.co.uk between the 1 January 2011 – 30 June 2011, I promise to continue to donate 1p per wish to the following charity: Make-A-Wish Foundation UK. This may not sound much but hopefully if everyone reading this pledge makes a wish and shares this with their family and friends this will soon add up. My third payment to the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK was made on the 1 January 2011 as promised.

Please help me to help others and thank you for your continued support…….

Finally, just a little reminder of 10 GREAT reasons to discover what one-wish can do for you.

• Submit YOUR most desired wish online via a simple, easy to use web-form.

• Scroll through over 7,000 wishes from people from around “Our World” all of which have been categorised for you into easy to follow sections: Love, Money, Fame and many, many more.

• Start shopping for the New Year in the NEW ONE-WISH Online Store in association with AMAZON. You can buy anything from the latest DVD to a new MP3 Player or even a vacuum cleaner if that’s what you need, directly and online without even leaving one-wish.

• Tweet your favourite part of one-wish to your followers.

• Come along and JOIN one-wish as a Friend and become a part of one-wish.

• Enter our Monthly Prize Draw for a box of one-wish Goodies

• Share any part or feature you like on one-wish with your friends and family….on Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and many more social websites with just the click of your mouse.

• A new, clean and fresh looking website layout with very easy to follow navigation, you won’t get lost on one-wish.

All the above is just a taster of what is now on offer to you at one-wish, so I really hope that when you have a few minutes to spare you will drop by and discover for yourself the wonderful goings on at one-wish.

In 2008 I created and founded my website with the sole aim of eventually helping others and one day this aim will become a reality, a reality not for commerce but for each and everyone of us, a place where sincerity, honesty and goodness will prevail and bring hope and a little joy of Christmas closer to those whom only wish to enjoy the same peace and harmony you, and I are both enjoying today.

My own philosophy on life has always and will remain simple “If I can help to make someone’s life easier, happier and fulfilling for at least one day, then this alone is good enough for me, why complicate life. Tomorrow is not a guarantee for anyone, but if I’m lucky enough to be here then let me make a difference, no matter how small that difference may be.

Always remember one thing, life is a gift and is for living, live it to its fullest everyday. I believe I am who I am because of everyone, not just because of who I am.

Thank you for sparing a few minutes to read this update, and finally I would like to thank each and everyone of you who has so kindly visited my website, because if it wasn’t for you my website would not be the success it is today!

Many Thanks
Kind Regards
Mike

Ps: The grass may look greener on the other side but life will always throw up some twist and turns for all of us, some for good and some for bad, but it’s how we react and respond to these events that truly define the person we will eventually become and lead us to our destiny.

What makes a difference is how we channel those times into helping others

We all have our up’s and down’s and if anyone says differently then they are lying. What makes a difference is how we channel those times into helping others.

I have been fortunate enough to meet Tom Rees who is not only a great person to be around but is also the founder and motivation behind an incredible website with the sole aim of helping others in need. Tom’s site is www.soberlivingsearch.com which is the place for any individual who is in need of help..

So if you or someone you know suffers from a drinking problem, drugs or depression please just let them know there are people out there who are trying to help, help which is free to find. It will only take a minute of your time but may well save the life of a friend. .

We only get one chance in life, this is not a rehearsal, so please if you really want to make a difference and help those in need please mention Tom’s site.

Thankyou
Mike

This may well sound really strange....

Did anyone else see bright orange lights in the sky over Didsbury (UK) last night...... at around 11 - 11:30pm, there were 3 evenly spaced orange glowing lights travelling in a north/west direction. At first I thought they might have been helicopters or even planes, but they seemed to be travelling too close together and there was no noise or additional flashing lights. These 3 lights disappeared into a cloud, but then they were closely followed by another 2 again flying close together and then by another 3, then 1 by 1, about 12 in all over a 30 minute period. This was so surreal and very strange... and before you say it, no, I hadn't been drinking last night.

Upon doing some research this morning on the internet this is certainly not the first occasion of people seeing these bright orange lights, there have been many similar sightings throughout the UK especially in and around Manchester over the past couple of years. If you don’t believe me just Google the above, it’s actually very fascinating to read all the reports.

I know this post is not in relation to my website, but it was something I experienced last night, and I wanted to share this with my readers.

Thank you for reading.

We all wish for something but do we wish for the right thing.....

Wishes play a pivotal role in hope, appreciative inquiry, resilience, savoring, purpose, love and goal setting. It is not always possible to guess the cause of happiness or the reason behind a particular demand. As a result, people often land up wishing for the “wrong” things. Wishes reveal a lot about the nature of a particular individual, and interestingly act as connections between human beings. Irrespective of the root, or community similar wishes bring people together. Actually, there are some concrete reasons underneath the perspective of consciousness that continuously ambush every effort if left unchanged. It would be no exaggeration to affirm that every endeavor kick starts with a wish. Human beings are born with an innate aptitude to create what they want. What is required is the understanding on how to "turn on" this ability.

one-wish surpasses 1st goal, over 5,000 Wishes!

I am very pleased to announce that thanks to each and every one of you who kindly dropped by one-wish.co.uk and left your wish have helped me to surpass my 1st goal. Over 5,000 wishes have now been made! Please help me to take this to the next level of 10,000 by asking your friends and family to drop by, thank you Mike.

Wishes are significant in human life. They may be defined as a hope, dream or love for something. Wishes make their presence felt from folklore to literature. While fiction is about supernatural wishes, sometimes entire tales revolve around wishes. Classically, the wish provider is a Genie, or spirit, after all who can ever forget the Aladdin's oil lamp or a container closed with Solomon's seal. Some cultures encourage people to "make a wish", such wishing upon a shooting star at night, tossing a coin into a well, or blowing out the candles on a birthday cake. When times are tough they offer us the much needed comfort, giving us a hint of hope and luck

Take Care

Please spare a couple of minutes to read "Our World"

Our World

Every year I ask just like many of us do…… what can I, one person do to make a difference?

This year I’ve decided to do something about it, I’m going to make that difference. I will show that just one person with the help and support of all the people who are reading this, their family and friends that in fact together working as a team we can and will make that difference, so here goes…..

Yes, we all know that currently the world over is experiencing economic hardship – more commonly known to you and I as the “Credit Crunch” and not to mention the severity of our Winter weather but these harsh times will end and it’s inevitable that the future will become brighter and these past turbulent years will be written into our history!

The future of “Our World” is in the hands of our Children it is our Children who will care for us as we grow older, it is our Children who will write our laws and bring prosperity and freedom to our lands, but lets not forget there are many children out there in fact millions who need our help, help in helping them to gain the knowledge and understanding of “Our World” a world which is fast becoming as one, thanks to our modern day science and technologies. Who would have thought as little as 20 years ago or even 10, maybe 5 years that today you and I could see and play games with our friends living thousands of miles away in America, China etc.. from our living room in our own homes or from the airplane which can take us around “Our World” in a matter of a single day! I want to use this technology to reach out to everyone and help bring together the people of our world, people who can and will help make that difference to those who need it the most, our Children.

There are Children who do not have the same opportunities that our children may have, they do not enjoy the same comforts as we may have and most of all they may not have the essentials of food, shelter and basic education which we all take so much for granted. So this brings me to my one-wish aim. I want to raise £1,000,000 ($1,500,000) to start a building program to build a school for the less privileged Children in as many continents of “Our World” as possible starting in Africa, then on to the America’s, Asia and more… I would like to equip these schools with the modern technologies that will help the Children achieve their own goals, which in turn will lead to a better world for everyone no matter of their race, colour or creed and bring unity to all!

I am certainly under no illusion, this will be a mammoth undertaking but all I can say I will certainly give it my best as I believe with all your help, advice and working closely as a team we will and can achieve this and more for the benefit of the less privileged Children of “Our World” our future!

You can help me to help others in many ways;

Simply by making a small donation, for example:

1) Advice,
2) Building Services,
3) Clothes,
4) Land,
5) Money,
6) Skills,
7) Technology,
8) The list is endless….

Or,

Simply help by just telling this story to your family and friends.

I believe it only takes for someone to have the courage and the goal to take the first important step. You and I may only be one individual or corporation but with your help and your family and friends help this one-wish will become a reality for many…..

I stress there is no obligation what-so-ever, as my greatest reward is that so many should approve and participate in the project, and so feel that they want to spread 'the word' with mentions to family, friends etc. However for those wishing to make a contribution towards my one-wish aim, your generosity is much appreciated, and is made easy and secure by quite simply clicking on the 'Donate' button on one-wish.co.uk .

Alternatively if you would like to pledge your support or donation please simply complete the short form on one-wish.co.uk

I plan to publish a book and an online version listing every person or company who generously makes a donation to “Our World” no matter how large or small that donation may be, every little will count. Everyone will have an option to have just their name listed or their name and donation or they can remain totally anonymous if they like. A copy of the book will be given to each school to be kept forever, to remind all who may visit of the generosity and goodwill of the people of our world.

My Philosophy on life is simple, if I can help to make someone’s life easier, happier and fulfilling for at least one day, then this alone is good enough for me, why complicate life. Tomorrow is not a guarantee for anyone, but if I’m lucky enough to be here then let me make a difference, no matter how small that difference may be. Always remember one thing, life is a gift and is for living, live it to its fullest everyday! I believe I am who I am because of everyone, not just because of who I am.

Please help me to help others.

If you would like to know more please don’t hesitate to contact me at ourworld@one-wish.co.uk

I would like to thank each and every one of you who has taken the time to read my one-wish aim “Our World”. Thank you.

Welcome 2010

First and foremost may I wish everyone a VERY…….Happy New Year and I hope in the New Year which also heralds the start of a new DECADE all your dreams and wishes become reality…….

2009 has been a fantastic year for one-wish as not only has it received nearly 3,000 wishes from different people from different countries from around “our” world, but it’s given me the opportunity to meet and make many new friends, friends which I would not have known if it wasn’t for one-wish.

I would just like to take this brief opportunity to mention a couple of my new friends who are both exceptional and wonderful people, Wendy and Tom Rees. Wendy who has her own weekly Live Radio show Wendy’s Animal Talk, is also a BEST selling author of six books whose latest book “Dog Lover's Daily Companion: 365 Days of Tips, Tricks, and Techniques for Living a Rich Life with Your Dog” was currently at No 2 in the charts the last time we spoke. During the Summer Wendy made the most generous offer to the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK to grant any child who would like to be on Wendy’s Animal talk live radio show in LA a wish to come TRUE. For those of you who do not know the Make-A-Wish Foundation are a charitable organisation, who grant wishes to both children and young people who have life threatening illnesses.

Wendy also runs her own website www.petlifestyleadvisor.com and a blog which is a must visit especially if you like our four legged friends. The blog is called www.adogsvoyagearoundtheworld.blogspot.com and is absolutely fantastic, fun and informative for both adults and children alike.

Tom is the founding manager of http://www.reesnetworks.com/ who have developed a fantastic website called http://soberlivingsearch.com/index.php Tom also runs his own blog http://dontdiecrying.com/ I think after visiting both sites you will gain a different and clearer perspective of life outside “our” own.

Both Wendy and Tom have become very good friends and I am very glad thanks to one-wish that I have had the opportunity to get to know these wonderful people on a more personal level.

I would like to make a special mention for Wendy’s sister, Carol Ann Emquies who is the chairman of the Africa Schoolhouse Foundation who are committed to building sustainable school communities for children in underserved areas of Africa. Their goal is to aid the progress of learning using modern technology and environmentally conscious methods while safeguarding the traditional teachings of cultural heritage. This is such a worthwhile organisation and it is the children who are the true beneficiaries of such a wonderful organisation. For more details log onto either http://www.africaschoolhouse.org or visit one-wish.

Now back onto one-wish.

During the year over 1,000 joined the one-wish mailing list to be kept in touch with the happenings and offerings on one-wish and on the subject of offerings; one-wish has just recently launched a new FREE Monthly and Bonus Prize Draw, giving every visitor the chance to win a box of one-wish goodies!

Why do we all make Wishes

Wishing is significant in human life. It may be defined as a hope or yearning for something. Wishes make their presence felt from folklore to literature. While fiction is all about supernatural wishes, sometimes an entire tale revolves around wishes. Classically, the wish provider is a Genie, spirit, or similar entity after all who can ever forget the Aladdin's oil lamp or a container closed with Solomon's seal. Some cultures encourage people to "make a wish", such wishing upon a shooting star at night, tossing a coin into a wishing well, blowing out the candles on a birthday cake, or breaking the wishbone of a cooked turkey. When times are tough, wishes offer the much needed comfort.

So drop by one-wish.co.uk and make your WISH today!

Hope to see you there soon.

Kind Regards
Mike.

Africa Schoolhouse Foundation

One-wish is very pleased to have come across the Africa Schoolhouse Foundation www.africaschoolhouse.org/ who are committed and endeavouring to bring the standards of schooling and life to a self sustainable level for the less fortunate Children and Villages of “Our World” to a level that most of us all take for granted.

Please drop by www.africaschoolhouse.org/projects.html to see their latest project; Ntulya School House. 100% of any donation made will go directly to the Ntulya project and benefit the Children directly.

“Africa Schoolhouse Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable and educational organization that is a public charity for U.S. tax purposes. We are committed to building sustainable school communities for children in underserved areas of Africa. Our goal is to aid the progress of learning using modern technology and environmentally conscious methods while safeguarding the traditional teachings of cultural heritage"

Mission Statement


This is one the most absolute worthwhile cause’s I have come across whilst operating my website. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone associated with the Africa Schoolhouse Foundation for their commendable and honourable work and drive to make the world a better place for all those who are less fortunate.


An extract from their latest newsletter, December 2009


Some of the young children of Ntulya (town. village)


Choo (pronounced "cho") is the Swahili word for toilet. In Ntulya, we have begun construction on eco-friendly; sustainable, self-composting pit latrines for our campus of 14 classrooms and 10 teacher houses. The school enrolment of 630 students requires 30 latrines for both girls and boys; the teachers living on campus in 10 individual homes will require one latrine each. These hygienic and innovative toilets are simple: while one pit is in use, the other is left covered. Within two years, the waste in the covered pit will dry up, ridding itself of pathogens, so that it's suitable for use as clean and usable crop fertilization!

And while this topic may seem an odd one for the holidays, remember to be especially grateful if you're blessed with proper and clean sanitation today - because many people (one-third of the world's population - 2.5 billion folks), unfortunately, are not.

Just before you go please take a moment to consider


6 in every 10 Africans lack access to a proper toilet.

In sub-Saharan Africa, 322 million people lack access to clean water and 463 million people lack access to adequate sanitation.

Together, unclean water and poor sanitation are a leading cause of child mortality: an estimated 5,000 children die daily from diarrhoea, which is spread through poor sanitation and poor hygiene. Universal access to improved sanitation could reduce diarrhoea-related morbidity by more than a third.

Studies have found that about half of girls who drop out of primary school in sub-Saharan Africa do so because of a lack of separate toilets and easy access to safe water

...and, please help spread the word.

We all make a SECRET wish now and then

Making a secret wish can be a joy and at the same time provides the positive energy to keep the hope alive. It is quite common with all of us to make secret wishes for things that would otherwise seem to be impossible – wishing for a promotion in office, getting good grades in examinations or winning the heart of the dream-girl.

There can be thousands of such occasions when we make a wish secretly and could not share it even with the person closest to us. We make a wish and keep praying for it to become true.

Sometimes our wishes do become realities and it is this fact that inspires us to wish for more.

Make your secret wish today http://www.one-wish.co.uk/.

Wish of the Month

I really wish that I could help my parents out financially. They are in so much debt and bought a house 6 years ago but haven't been able to redevelop it properly because of financial issues. There have been so many repairs to it that the house is becoming a shambles. I also wish for my mother and step dad to stop smoking and to become more active, for the benefit of my younger brother and for themselves. I wish that they will lead a more stable life in the future when they grow old. I also wish for my auntie to not have a miscarriage this time as she has been trying for a baby for over 10 years. She is finally almost 3 months pregnant and I hope she stays that way! I also wish for my good friend Richard who I hope finds the inner strength in him to carry on with his life and not think so negatively about himself. Gilbraltar

Wish for the Wealth of Health

Health is wealth but not all of us are endowed with it. There are many people around the globe who are suffering from deadly diseases. Good physical and mental health is desired by one and all. But a lot of effort is required to maintain a good health in all aspects. Even if you are too fat or too thin, you won't be able to enjoy the benefits of a good health. Lots of exercises, healthy eating habits and efficient stress management go into the making of a healthy body, mind and heart.

If you are suffering from a disease and wish to be healthy, then write about it at the Health Wishes section of http://www.one-wish.co.uk/. People around the world will read your wish and learn about your problems. You can also get to know what health problems others are bothered with. It is even possible that after reading your wish, someone may come to help you to make your wish a reality. So, never stop wishing for a wonderful health. But also keep working hard to attain that perfect healthy body and mind. In fact, if your wish for good health is fulfilled then your other wishes will also come true.

The Good Luck Wish

Who doesn't want a good fortune? Most people pray to God for good marks in exams, a good life partner, to make them rich overnight and what not! But luck is so notorious that though at times it acts in favor there are times when it ditches too. We wish each other luck before beginning something important or when we go for an exam or a business meeting. After all, we all wish to be blessed with good fortune. There are many who make regular visits to fortune-tellers to know if luck will favor them in future. There are also certain objects that we consider to be lucky. This differs from culture to culture – from hanging horseshoes at the front door of a house, to putting coins under doorsteps to bring good financial gains in the family. Four-leaf clovers, rabbits foot, rudraksha, and fortune frogs are some of the common symbols of good luck that are found in Western and Asian cultures.

So if you are wishing for luck, you can share your wish with people around the world on http://www.one-wish.co.uk/. You can also read about others desires, you never know, your wish may come true! So, make that one wish for good luck!

Wow August what a fantastic month

There’s been so many great things happening I’m just not sure were to begin……… so I’ll start here…..

I have become very good friends with a wonderful lady in America who has not only become a very special and dear friend to me, but who has kindly offered to grant a wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation to a child, anywhere in the world to play host on Wendy’s Animal Talk Radio show in America…… Words cannot express just how much gratitude I have for Wendy and for what she is doing, this sums up exactly everything I am trying to achieve with one-wish and this wonderful act alone makes all the time an effort so worthwhile. For those of you who do not already know I operate my website http://www.one-wish.co.uk/ as a hobby, as I currently hold down a full time job as well.

Wendy herself is a very remarkable person…….she has overcome many obstacles in her own path from suffering severe dyslexia and ADHD. Wendy and her family were told that Wendy would not graduate high school. However, whenever Wendy is presented with obstacles in her life, it kicks her driving engine into gear and she charges ahead to prove all the naysayers wrong. In 2000 Wendy was diagnosed with breast cancer, which forced her to take a break from her career to focus all her energy on her recovery. Today, Wendy is happy to say she is cancer-free and working on her worldwide internet radio show called Wendy’s Animal Talk. You can hear Wendy every Tuesday at 1PM PST at www.healthylife.net also writes two weekly pet tips for the web site lovetoknow.com where she provides dog and cat advice.

And there’s more….. Wendy has become a recognised author of five books and an authority on looking after your pets….you can check-out all about Wendy and her books on Wendy’s own website www.petlifestyleadvisor.com it’s a must visit.

I would like to thank Wendy on behalf of one-wish and all of my visitors for everything Wendy has done, not only for granting such a wonderful wish to a young child but also for proving to the world that no matter what difficulties may lay ahead, you can, if you set your mind to your own aims and goals, achieve whatever you want from your life…… we only get one chance, so enjoy it to the fullest….

Love for the seventh, yes seventh month in a row continues to dominate the one-wish charts for the most popular category for wishes placed during August, with a whopping 22% of all wishes. Money follows in second at 15% with Family close by in third at 14%. There are over a thousand wishes for you to browse whilst you visit my website

During the month my one-wish pledge campaign got off to a roaring start, with over 1,400 wishes placed, the response has been fantastic! Thank you to everyone who has contributed by making a wish……

If you like my website please tell your friends, if you don’t please tell me…..I do listen! Some of the changes and features that now appear on my website reflect comments and/or suggestions from the many users who use my site.

Please help me to help others by supporting my one-wish pledge campaign…all you have to do is make a wish!

This is absolutely fantastic news, thank you so much Wendy on behalf of one-wish

This is a copy of a letter I received yesterday from Wendy to Laura at the Make-A-Wish Foundation and I wanted to share this with everyone as it sums up what one-wish is all about. This is absolutely fantastic news thank you so much Wendy on behalf of one-wish and all my followers, this truly is a wonderful thing that you are doing.

8/16/2009

Dear Laura,

Hello. My name is Wendy and I am a good friend of Mike Rigby, owner of the web site, one-wish.co.uk. I live in Los Angeles, California and have a radio show and webpage called Wendy’s Animal Talk.

Recently, I have been very moved by your organization and foundation and I would consider it an honor to grant a wish. As a breast cancer survivor, I know first hand what it is like experiencing daily challenges. Since birth, I have lived with servicer dyslexia and ADHA. I truly feel comfort in knowing that there are Guardian Angels, such as yourself and Mike out there, helping dreams come true.

Please let me know how I help grant a child wish, either personally or through my radio show. Perhaps you have a young budding On Air Talent who would love to have their very own pet talk show for a day.

Thank you so much for all of the wonderful wishes you and your staff grant every day.

Bless you and your children.

Lord Captain Bowes Rees, AKA Cappy

Today’s post is not about me, not about my website one-wish, it’s all about a travelling dog “Lord Captain Bowes Rees” Lord Captain Bowes Rees, AKA Cappy, likes to travel first class! around the world discovering new stories and events, reporting back dutifully to his blog...

I have included below a small extract from his very own blogspot A Dog’s Voyage Around the World™ you can follow the remarkable adventures here http://adogsvoyagearoundtheworld.blogspot.com/

where you can also join Cappy as a friend by clicking the Google Friends Connect button on the right hand side of the blog post.

This is an absolute must visit! and I definitely recommend joining Cappy as a friend…so all you dog lovers out there please rally around and ask your friends to drop by.

Extract : A Dog’s Voyage Around the World™

I am a 6 year old Yorkshire terrier from London, England. My Great Great Great Grandfather was from Yorkshire England which is very north of the country. I was born in the city proper, a town called Chelsea also better knows to you Americans as Kensington.

When my mother was recovering from breast cancer, she told my father that she had to come to London to get me. I was just a little less than a pound and my mum and I got on a very large, what I know now, is an airplane. I didn’t know it then, but I do know now after many transatlantic flights. We are a family that travels quite a lot.

When I first got home, I was quickly introduced to my two new brothers. My oldest brother, Governor, the black lab, may God rest his soul, and Senator, the chocolate lab. It wasn’t until some years later when Governor went up to be our guardian angel that our Little Man chihuahua, who speaks Spanish and we have a little a language problem because I speak the Queens tongue. Nonetheless, we have a great time swimming in the ocean and in the pool. I hear my mum often telling people that the Labradors have webbed feet and are supposed to swim, but that I and Little Man are not supposed to swim, but are supposed to sink as we don’t have webbed feet. But let me tell you, that we live to swim and we love to go on Papa’s yacht.

Every summer, we go back East to Grandmother and Grandfathers home in the Hamptons. We spend the entire month of August there. Lucky for me, I get to fly with Mum in the cabin as always. Poor Senny, he loves his crate, but he seems to go somewhere else. He tells me it’s quite comfortable but is loud and has a hum to it. He says it doesn’t matter because he knows where he is going and he is going to the beach for a month and nothing could be finer than to be living at the beach for one month. And let me just tell you that Grandmother and Grandfather have two Labradors, Chloe and Luke, that we love to play with and our Tata Liz has a poodle named Rupert that loves to swim and go on the yacht with us too.

So, welcome to our blog. I hope you will join us for the next 12 months as we get ready to go on our voyage around the world. My mum is going to take her radio show and a camera crew with us so you will be able to hear us on the radio, and they call it VOD (video on demand) to see little things that we do at different locations around the world. My Tata Louise is going to help me with these blog entries & many Pictures as I can take J a couple of times a week from different places in the world and of course, while I am here in the United States. That is it for today here in sunny Los Angeles, and as we say in London, Ta-ta, Cheerio, Toodle-hoo

More…..

I've just added a new feature called Google friends connect to my homepage, allowing visitors to join my website as a member of one-wish....it's pretty cool I think.

My website has received over 1,200 unique wishes from around the world.

During July I launched a great campaign in aid of children with life threatening illnesses, I have called this The ONE-WISH Pledge, highlighted on my homepage and in my blogs.

I have also made it very easy, a single click, for users to retweet my story on Twitter.

So if you get the chance please drop my website http://www.one-wish.co.uk/ and see for yourself the great and exciting changes that I have made to one-wish over the past couple of months.

Do you wish that all your wishes come true?

It is perhaps too much to desire for all your wishes to come true. But when you have a long list of them and when you want them to come true sooner, then you may wish and pray to God to make all your wishes a reality! A new car, a vacation in Hawaii with your spouse or lover, a huge pay-packet, and what not! In fact, there seems to be no end to our wishes all through our lives. Sometimes we wish for others too and wish that all of them come true. Perhaps you want your children to get into college, get a good job, get a good life, or you want people to live in peace and harmony.

No matter what you wish for, wouldn’t it be great if people around the world knew about them and pray that they come true? In fact, it is believed that more people pray for a certain thing to happen, all the vibrations and the will powers of different individuals work together to make that happen. So, why not let the world know about all your wishes and pray for them to come true. At http://www.one-wish.co.uk/, you can read about the innumerable wishes made by people around the world and feel connected with them through your wish.

Love is All That Matters

If you wish for love then you are not alone. Love is wished for by most people, no matter what language they speak, or where they live, or how much they earn. Love knows no boundaries of age, location or gender. In fact, philosophers around the world equal Love with God! When you wish for love, it’s as if you wish for God. No one feels complete in life unless they are loved by someone or have someone to love. There is perhaps no other thing in this world that can make anyone as happy as love does. Some keep their love a secret while others confess it to the world.

Read all about what people around the world wish for when they are in love or find out who else wants to be in love. Whether you want your ex back in your life or wish for someone special to fall in love with you head over heels, don’t confine your wishes to yourself. The moment you write it down, you’ll feel more confident and your wishes will come true. Check out the love wishes section at http://www.one-wish.co.uk/ and find out what people around the world wish for in love.

Let Peace Prevail On Earth

As if there was a dearth of natural calamities like floods, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions to kill us, that people all around the world make war! As if they’re bent on eliminating the human race. I wonder what the government around the world gain by war? But we do all lose a part of us with each war or act of violence that takes place on this earth. With the advancement in civilization, we are supposed to live in peace and harmony. Somehow the wheel seems to be turning backwards towards the ancient barbaric days when people used to kill each other at the drop of a hat. Racial attacks, communal violence and hatred for neighbouring countries don’t show any signs of decline.

So, if you wish for world peace and a more civilized world, then let the world know about it. There is no other easy way to do it than to log on to http://www.one-wish.co.uk/. Check out the section on peace wishes and feel connected to the people around the world who wish for the same. Each thought, each belief, and each wish matters. Wish for peace in the world and watch the whole world wish with you on One Wish.

Wishing for Your Relationship to Work Out Well

Relationships are delicate. Unless you tend to them with a lot of love, care and attention, they may die sooner even before you realize. We wish our love to stay by our side forever but destiny may have something else in store. Those who are single may wish to fall in love and be in a relationship. The silver lining is wishes often do come true. All you have to do is wish. If you don’t wish, then how can you expect them to come true in the first place? Most people don’t want their relationships to stumble midway and keep wishing for it to work out till the end of their lives.

How about sharing your wishes with the rest of the world? You never know, the love of your life may read about your secret wish about her on www.one-wish.co.uk, and fall in love with you even more. And if you are single and in a mood to mingle, you can read about the wish for another lonely heart from any part of the world, and connect with him to make a foundation of a happy relationship. If you have just one wish to make, and it is the success of your relationship, then don’t hesitate and speak out. It will come true!

Making Wishes for the Family

Some people wish good things for their family while some wish to have a sweet family. You are maybe wishing for a good relationship with your spouse or want to have another child in your family. From health, happiness and the success of all your family members to wishing that problems between your family members are sorted out, wishes related to the family are endless. One cannot stop wishing good for family members in every sphere of life. And there are also those who don't have a family and wish to have one! Orphans wish for good and kind adopted parents. Lonely singles and those who are in love look forward to start a family. Married couples wish to extend their families by having children or adopting them.

So what do you wish for your family? Or do you wish to have a family? Put it down in writing at www.one-wish.co.uk. Read about what others have wished for in the family wishes section of the website. When people around the world read about your wishes, they too will feel like wishing that your wishes come true. Let the world know what you wish for your family. It may also happen that someone may read your wish and help you to make it come true. Don't underestimate the power of words. Just write down that one wish that's on your mind!

Waiting to Hear Some Good News

We all wait eagerly for good news – any kind of good news! It can be good news in the family, good news in the office, some personal good news, or good news from any part of the world. The list is long but often we don’t receive the good news that we hope for. When we open the newspaper every morning, it is cluttered with bad news like news of racial attacks, wars, murders, thefts and economic slowdown – as if good news has become rare! When we constantly keep on hearing bad news all around us, it can make us depressed. Good news helps us to think positive about the world. In fact, there are certain organizations that work towards spreading good news in the world such as the Good News Network and the Good News Broadcast. Good news can work wonders to improve our physical and emotional health and bring prosperity in our lives.

Want to know what good news people from around the world wish for? Then visit the site http://www.one-wish.co.uk/. In the good news section, you can share any good news you want and read what good news others wish to hear.

Wish for Your Dream Destination

Ever closed your eyes and imagined yourself being transported to the place of your dreams – your dream destination? All of us have a favourite place in their mind that they wish to visit at least once in their lifetime. You may have heard about this place from someone’s first hand account or a story, may have seen a painting or photograph of this place or seen it on television or a movie. It can be a country such as Australia or a city like London. From the mountains of Switzerland to the beautiful Hawaiian beaches, and from Norway’s gorges to Japan, your dream destination can be situated in any corner of the earth. It can even be an imaginary place that may have no existence in reality.

Whatever may be the place of your dreams that you wish to visit, why keep it inside your heart as a secret? Share it with others and read about the dream destinations of people around the world. If you have just one wish to make that would be the most important one in your life, then let it out on http://www.one-wish.co.uk/ You’ll also find it very interesting to note the different places that people like to visit on the site. In fact, you may be surprised to find that your hometown, which you may find boring because you are used to it, is the dream destination of a person who lives at the other end of the globe.

Hope to see you there, take care.

Do You Dream of Becoming a Writer?

Most of us have grown up reading Grimm’s fairytales and classic stories like Alice in Wonderland or the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. And then we go on to read Mills and Boons and Sidney Sheldon novels in our teenage years. From detective novels engaging us with their mystery and suspense to romance or adventures and sci-fi, there are endless genres of fiction that you may enjoy reading. Non-fiction writers are also quite popular. Take for example Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People”, which has become a global bestseller in its own right. It has even been translated into a number of languages, reaching a larger and varied audience.

No wonder that many of us wish writing a book to narrate their own fiction or real-life tales and become famous. But the urge to become a writer, most of the times, lies dormant in people who are engaged in some other full-time job. They feel that they are born to do something different, but are unable to quit their job or find time to start upon their dream novel. So, life just goes on with the hope that someday their wish will be fulfilled. You can now share your dreams, hopes and wishes with people around the globe and also listen in on their stories at http://www.one-wish.co.uk/

In the Pursuit of Happiness

Happiness is something that has eluded people for centuries. What did we not do in pursuit of happiness? From climbing mountains to diving into the depths of the ocean, from running after money to looking for happiness wherever we thought we could find it – we haven’t left any stone unturned. But those who went in pursuit of it have again and again concluded that happiness lies within us. We just have to look within and it’s ours to behold. We don’t have to find it anywhere else.

So many people all over the world feel that they are unhappy. They look everywhere other than the place where they’ll find it.

Don't Let Hope Leave You Ever

Hope is what keeps us going! Those who lose hope about life hardly have anything to live for. They may think that their life is not worth living. If you are going through a very bad phase in life then hoping for the return of the good times makes you work hard to bring them back. Hope is all around us in the world. All you need to do is look for it and it will be yours. You just have to believe that whatever you are hoping for will actually happen, and the good vibrations that you generate as a result of it will help to make your hope a reality.

Hope is something that you shouldn't keep to yourself only. Share your hopes with the world and learn what others hope for. The Hope Wishes section of http://www.one-wish.co.uk/ lets you put down your hopes in words. The moment you write it down, your conviction becomes stronger that what you hope or wish for will come true. You feel good about it and work towards it to make it a success. Don't keep your hopes a secret from the world. Share your good feelings and convictions with people all around the world.

Wish for MONEY

A small wish on a dandelion fluff “I hope I become a millionaire some day.” Those who have money, they wish for more and those who don’t, clamor for some. Most people can benefit from having more of money in their lives. Actually it all begins with a simple thinking – or at least that is what studies on people who are wealthy reveal. It has been found that people who have learnt to think about money differently are the ones who manage to make it big, albeit financially.

There are some concrete reasons just below the perspective of our consciousness. These if left unchanged, persist to ambush our every attempt in making our wish come true. Physical tangible wealth begins from a wish. With time this wish grows into clarity and feeling until it can be turned into reality. To describe in brief, all human beings have the innate inborn aptitude to create what they want. What we only require is to understand how to "turn" this ability “on”. Undoubtedly, wishing is a significant part of this process. And what better way to make your wishes get noticed and read by people wanting to help others’ wishes come true than online. The website http://www.one-wish.co.uk/ can help attract the attention of global charity organizations and benevolent individuals, who will help you, achieve your wish in a jiffy!

Secret Wish

Making a secret wish can be a joy and at the same time provides the positive energy to keep the hope alive. It is quite common with all of us to make secret wishes for things that would otherwise seem to be impossible – wishing for a promotion in office, getting good grades in examinations or winning the heart of the dream-girl. There can be thousands of such occasions when we make a wish secretly and could not share it even with the person closest to us. We make a wish and keep praying for it to become true. Sometimes our wishes do become realities and it is this fact that inspires us to wish for more.
