St. Jude Medical Center Project


You may or may not have heard from us in the recent past, but we are writing again to fully explain this idea. I’m from an online blog called Shooting Stars and we are working on a project. You see, I had hoped that if we were able to use a site and make a book and if people bought it, we’d make some money off of it…so we could give about half the proceeds away. I didn’t say anything because I wasn’t sure if that was how it would work, but I’ve decided that it should and if not, I’ll try and find a way!

Basically, we want as many people to answer this question:

“If you could wish on a shooting star, what would you wish for and why?”

We’ll include all the answers into a little book and allow people to purchase them using a self-publishing site. If we make any money off of it, we hope to donate at least half the proceeds to St. Jude’s Medical Center, a place I’ve been keen about for awhile.

So, you simply need to answer the above question, include your full name, and credit (student, singer, musician, author, etc.) if you have one!

Please spread the word. We want submissions from anyone and everyone!
Send ALL answers to Myspace via message ( or email us here:

Thank you for your time and we appreciate the help!
Kind Regards,

P.S. If you are an author, please feel free to write a wish for a character...just include their name and the book they are from.

I love St. Jude's. I've participated in/organized several fundraisers for them through the years. (Okay, I only organized one but it was work, and I didn't even have to do the groundwork since it was something my HS did annually.)

zulmara: There isn't a SET time yet, because we just want enough submissions before we do definitely spread the word!! But for now, we'd love to see HOW many we can get by the end of June, but we'll see...

Breanna: Thank you!! Definitely submit something!

Livinia: oh, me too. I love them. That's really cool though!! Submit a wish for sure!!
Get anyone you know to as well.

Be original. They can be funny, weird, thought-provoking, etc.
