The make a wish foundation grants a wish for a terminally ill child every 41 minutes.

If you had been terminally ill at 7 what would you have wished for?

And a very sweet kitten bath. Aww.

I think "not being terminally ill" would have been at the top of my list.

Yeah, me too. *nod* But I don't think Make a Wish can help too much in that. They can inspire hope though, which is definitely helpful.

I would wish to be a spokesperson for Make a Wish. My friend Jamie did that and she goes all over speaking and has met very cool people. It's amazing and sounds wonderful.

I've been looking into it as well. What an amazing thing to be able to do. Help children make their dreams come true. That's just wonderful.

at age 7? wow that is tough. I probably would have wanted to meet Dolly Parton or Anne Murray, my favorite singers at the time.

I actually once in awhile think about what my wish would be if that was the case now. LOL which is silly and morbid. But my answer would be to read a scene with Christian Bale! so if i become terminally ill and anyone asks, its that. LOL

When I was 7 it was playing Annie. lol. ;)

And that's awesome. Gosh. Now? I don't know. I'd have to think on it more. I knew what it was at 7 so that's why I asked it that way. hehe

No idea. Prolly something stupid like meeting Ronald McDonald. LOL I didn't like any celebrities yet (I don't think), I had all the toys in the world...

I don't know if I already knew singing was a job and you could like do it on stage, but I liked to sing, so maybe that. I'm honestly not sure.

I know that at that age, when I used to wish on stars, I used to ask God for a boyfriend. HAHA And here I am, gonna be 22 in week and I've never actually had a BOYFRIEND (I've dated, etc. but no relationships).

I love The Make A Wish Foundation, but if you really think about it, when you're a kid, you don't need money or things or to meet anyone to be happy...you just are, every second of the day.

Its adults who feel the need to hold onto the physical world.

That's not always true. Especially if you're hurting from disease or something like that. I think the Make A Wish foundation is truly amazing.

And I think it's great for those that love the child, to be able to see a little wish come true.

What I Would Have Wished For?

I didn't go to Disneyworld till I was nine. Every day before that, when I saw a dandelion, I would wish that I could go to Disneyworld "where all your dreams come true". I was still into fairytales and princesses at the time. So, I think that's where I would have gone. Actually, that's probably where I would go now, because it was so much fun.

Loved the video--so cute!

I think I probably would have wished for a day on the set of "Dukes of Hazard," because I was so totally nutso about John Schneider. Go ahead and laugh--it's pretty funny.

It's a great cause.

At age 7. I would have wanted to meet Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. Luke was my first Crush and I wanted to grow up to be Princess Leia. *blushes*
