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….


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 .

Alternatively if you would like to pledge your support or donation please simply complete the short form on

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.

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 and a blog which is a must visit especially if you like our four legged friends. The blog is called and is absolutely fantastic, fun and informative for both adults and children alike.

Tom is the founding manager of who have developed a fantastic website called Tom also runs his own blog 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 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!

Finally, due to the great success of my ONE-WISH Pledge campaign I have decided to continue the campaign for a further six months. Therefore for every single person that makes a wish on between the 1 January 2010 – 30 June 2010 I promise to continue to donate 1p per wish to the following charity: Make a Wish Foundation UK It may not sound much but hopefully it will soon add up if everyone reading this pledge makes a wish and shares this with their family and friends! (My first payment to the Make a Wish Foundation UK was made on the 31 December 09 as promised)

Please help me to help others, thankyou…….

Thankyou for taking a few minutes to read this update and finally I would like to thank each and every one of you who has visited my website. If it wasn’t for you my website would not be the success it is today!

Many Thanks
Kind Regards
