Wishful thinking…

Everyone has wishes, but sometimes it
takes a tribe to fulfill them.

The Wishing Well gives you meaningful
opportunities to be supportive by helping
fulfill the wishes of kindred spirits locally or
globally. You can also toss in your own special
wishes to see who shows up to fulfill them.

It's easy to find wishes you share in common
with others or can support: click on any tag,
or enter words for your own tag search.

Gather around the Wishing Well every day
to see the latest wishes–or have fun
discovering what your friends are wishing
for by going to their city's Wishing Well.
