WWW.WISHUPONAHERO.COM

I have come across this amazing website the other day. I was browsing on a message board related to a favourite singer of mine, and someone posted this link regarding some help she was trying to give to someone from the board. It’s wonderful that people do care, that people do take the initiative and start something that grows with time to become a world-altering project.

Basically, this is a non-profit organization that grants wishes, regardless of age, sex, religion, etc. Anyone can make a wish, and anyone can grant a wish. I have always had problems with charities in the sense that money one gives there is given without a name, without a face, and you never know where your money will end up. I am not saying I don’t have trust in charities, although there are many who will take advantage. I’m just saying that this website is a universal chain of love where some single mom is asking for help for her kids’ Christmas, and an old teacher, perhaps from another country, will offer to send her money for a grand, festive meal. There are people asking for material help, others for spiritual, and otherwise. People comment, people ask, people reply, people HELP. It’s something I had been toying with for months now, something to gather as many people as possible to start helping each other, through small steps first. But this website is a very well organized charity place already, there is a foundation, there is a shop, one can donate, or just browse and “listen” to how people ask, and receive help. It’s wonderful!

    I know guys, it’s an amazing idea. I registered to the website and browse the wishes from time to time… help when I can, usually by sending objects to people (books, movies). It’s really wonderful that 1 man came up with an idea and look where he took it to.

    The idea behind the site is great, and something that is very much needed. However, since people are not in any way checked, please be careful when helping and really look into the people and situations. There are a great number of frauds on the site, and some people are using it to make a living. I have had a number of bad experiences in helping through there, despite my diligence, and will no longer assist people I meet there, other than with information, or cards, or if I can check out their circumstances through three impartial sources. Just please be very careful!

    I can imagine how many people are trying to take advantage of that site, Jennifer… sadly, it’s always the case. I helped a few people there but then I gave up. There’s not enough money, time etc. to help everyone… it discouraged me. I know it’s the wrong attitude. I want to change it.
