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
