Oprah wants to make dreams come true

With her 25th and final season, Oprah Winfrey is looking to grant a few wishes.

The “premiere week,” which kicks off on September 13, will feature an appearance by country stars Naomi and Wynonna Judd; a return visit to Williamson, West Virginia, where Winfrey did an episode on HIV/AIDS in 1987, to talk with the guests of that show; a one-on-one with Bethany Storro, a victim of an acid attack caused by a stranger; and the announcement of Winfrey’s latest book club selection, according to a press release.

The premiere episode is supposed to be filled with celebrity guests and a surprise musical performance, but of course you’ll have to tune in to find out who exactly will be swinging by. Apparently this is also the episode in which “dreams will come true” for some of Winfrey’s viewers.

Premiere week launches Monday – will you be watching?

    I read some where that you help people fix homes or build one . Miss Oprah My house needs to be fixed terribly. It has been setting since 1979 and unfinished and I wrote everyone I could think of . Especially the people from HGTV and never get a response. It seems they only want to do people in the cities. We are signal out somehow. Can you give me a miracle this Christmas. we would be so happy after 33 years I would have a house completely finished. Thank you so much

    DEAR OPRAH,
    I am a single Mother of Five Beautiful Children. I would love it if u would help me make my dreams come true. I would love to own my restuant. I love cooking. I love to see the smiles on other people faces when they taste my food. I also would love to own house. I would love to have a Family Foundation for my kids. I would love to go to school also to learn more about the finer kind of cooking. If you would help me to make my dreams come true I promise that I wouldnt let you down on all that I do. I have a real big heart and would love to feed and shelter the homeless. I want to show them that I do care. Again Please help a Mother like me to better myself and help me to help others. I pray that you would hear my humble cries and make this dream come true for me.

    Dear Oprah, I am tired of renting, I'm a single mom, with low income status. I been looking for a home to buy since March 2012. I found one that I been following its a fixer upper. The family there have been trying to sell this home until recently It fell out of escrow, its hard for the bank to lend the loan because its surrounded by commercial zone and housing mix. So its been in escrow a few times. Its in Paramount,Ca. 15559 illinois ave. This is my wish to own this home I can't afford much, But this one is going to be making ends meet. And better than renting. Its going to be work and progress. I want to make it a beautiful two story, 4 bedrooms a lil patio and cute kitchen. I just need help to make my wish come true! I want to be a homeowner at this address. It was on the Market until recently the owners gave up they can't find a bank that would take the risk! Can you please find a way that the owners can agree again, and find. A bank that would be willing to help me. Thanks!

    I don't know where to start but my boyfriend that I have been with for four years has Lymohoma cancer for the second time. I have been trying so hard to be there for him and care for him but his depression comes where he can't work cause of how weak he is and I have been looking for work because I'm been trying of ways to pay the rent so we won't be evicted my car is at it's last working condition wich is hard because that's how I get him to the hospital I spend whatever little money I have to keep it runnin just for this purpose. I just want to make his dreams come true of solving some of this problems until I can make my car last a little bit longer and just pay the rent for this month of september. I love him so much and for that reason I will not leave him for anything in the world because I love him that much. He is a kind person with a big heart he is an instuctor for a community center in taekwondo where he goes no matter how weak or bad he feels but he sits there and watches his kids while his assistant runs the class says I just want to be there for them, after the class he so tired and it just breaks my heart to see him this way. I don't know what can be done but just want to be able to get him to his doctors appointments. I thank you for reading this hope to hear from you my name is Gloria and I can be reached at 702-788-1242.

    MissOprah.....Congrats for your generosity over the years. God Bless you!
    I have a wish I don't know if you could help? I would love to meet you....:)
    My other wish is.... I went to Nursing school late in life....I have alot of bills from this....I wondered if I could have my dream come true and that would be to have my credit cards Aprox 20,000.00 paid.
    I love nursing and wouldn't know what to do with myself if I didn't nurse..I've always loved to take care of people and animals as well..... I still do.
    I live alone and put myself through school and helped my two girls go to college. One daughter is a nurse too....
    It is hard being alone and raising two daughters. I'm 59 now and can't retire because I want to pay my debt I owe....Probably would not even if my dept is paid......
    I would like to take a trip someday....haven't figured out where yet??? :) I could if my Credit cards were paid....
    So thank you for your time and maybe I will meet you someday! My dream of meeting you....would be wonderful!!!!
    God Bless you Oprah.....You have been a joy to the world over the years....And I think we share the same birthday.....Feb 1st....1954. Love to you! Your Friend, Jackie

    If you have ever read the Bible story about Josef, well this is the story of my life all of my talents have been put to one side for love and my choices of love has been a story of betrayal and loving persons or person whom did not love me in return and then for whatever reason have chosen to put the knife in and then give it a good twist WHY this has been the story of my life I dont know My eldest sister tells me that people are envious of the way I look and hate me for it. My wish is that you would help me to complete a movie based on my life and a tv series based on the time I spent in the united kingdom and some of the darker side of not so jolly old England. Please let me finish this story by dotting the i's and crossing the T's By telling you the rest. It is a story that you have never heard anything quite like it before

    I know it is a long shot. I know there are more ppl in need but myself, but im stuck. I am a 22 year old female and have been on my own struggling for a while now but am blessed with sights set on her dreams of being a performing artist. I have auditioned for the number one performing arts academy in America, and was ACCEPTED!!! ive completed literally everything i can possibly do alone, the paperwork, getting accepted, down to selling my car to pay for my spot at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy of the Performing Arts, the last step is covering the rest of the costs that my student financial aid wont cover. Ive even seeked a cosigner to take out a student loan, and everyone that Ive went to for help has laughed at me telling me I was silly for thinking that I could make it, but I cant give up...This is what Im passionate for, for goodness sake the only thing I know Im good at and it is not an impossible dream to me. I just need someone to have faith and believe in me. I will make it to the top.

  24. Brooke Rippey

    Hello Oprah,
    My name is Brooke Rippey and I am 18 years old. I live in a small town called Carroll County in Hillsville, VA. I am seeking help for the first time because I have realized that my situation is putting a hazard on the health of my mother and me. My mother and I have a house that our great grandfather bought for us when I was born. We lived here the first 2 years of my life and ever since then we have constantly moved back and forth from my great grandmother’s house to my mother’s ex-husbands and ex-boyfriends house. My mother disabled and I am currently in nursing. I want to become a surgeon one day or something along those lines. I feel like my purpose is to save people’s lives. I have always had a passion for taking care of people and it is the best feeling in the world to know that I help them. My mother cannot really do much because she has had many health problems, she had colon cancer when I was younger and is doing better now but she cannot really do much because she is always stressing about fixing up our house. She loves to do whatever she can for people and she is always willing to give up her time for others. The thing that my mother and I truly need is our house to be fixed and livable at least. It is such a health hazard. We moved back in our old house 3 years ago and we have not had any money to fix it up at all. We had people come in a try to make it safer and warmer but it still was not enough. We recently found out that we had three bees’ nests in our walls, which was bad because my mother is severely allergic to them. We still think there are more creatures in the walls that we still have just not discovered. We have so money things that are bad that I am afraid to mention them because our house will probably be taken away from us, because it is that bad. I have emailed and applied on many websites trying to find somebody to help us fix our house. I love it because its home, but it is hard my mother and I to try to fix it on our own due to her low income on disability. I could work but it is just too hard to fulfill my dream in the medical field and work at the same time. If I had any money, I would put every penny towards making this house a better place to live. If there is any way, you could help or give some advice, let us just say that would be a dream come true. I figured if I could have it done around Christmas it would be a perfect gift for my mother. I know that I am not that great at writing but I really hope that you can look past that. I usually never do this type of thing because I know it is a small chance that a mother and daughter that lives in such as small-unknown town would ever get the opportunity to get help from someone so famous. I guess it is worth a shot, but I pray to god that you please respond. God bless you for all the things that you do to help. If you read this thank you so much for taking the time to. It means a lot! Sincerely Brooke Rippey

    Hello Oprah,

    I know this is a very HUGE wish, and if it cant be granted, I truely understand. I am a mother of 8 beautiful kids. Five of them are my own and three are my stepchildren. Well my wish is to be able to take them to Disney world, but with us being a large family and the hardship now days it seems impossible to make my wish come true. My fiance' and I work full time, but we always seem to make just enough to pay the bills. Truthfully, there will not be much of a Christmas this year, but we do have each other. Thats the important things in life! If you could make my wish come true, words couldnt describe how thankful we would be. Thanks for taking the time to read my wish.

    Oprah , Hi i would love it and be very grateful if you can make not only my step son ,but my dream come true . My son was just diagnosed with HIV about 3 weeks ago while he was in the hospital . he had went to the hospital for what he thought was a bug bite , well it turned into an abccess and he let it go too long so he had to stay in the hospital for a couple of wks well to his suprise and ours after running some blood test they found out he was hiv positive . he is only 23 yrs old and it was a shock to us all . well to make a long story short he was released and came home , but he didnt seem to be getting better he was just getting weaker and couldnt eat cuz he had got thrush and his weight began to drop rapidly , while at his mothers he was still complaining that he didnt feel good well it was like 3 weeks ago when his mother awoke and found him on the floor face down and cold to the touch well she called 911 and went back to the hospital where he stayed for 2 and a half weeks . We were so worried cause the doctors didnt really know why he started having seizures and it was just terrible to watch he was septic meningitis wich is a miricale he pulled thru "thank god" with all our prayers and love he pulled thru well he just went back home to his mothers a couple of days ago and he had a doctors appt yesterday and his doctor told him he has full blown aids . This poor boy has gone thru so much in his life and i wish i could give him one wish and make him just forget about all this stuff for awhile you know . it hurts me dearly to see him going thru this . Well last nite i stayed up late texting him and just trying to keep him focused on something else for a little bit and it worked. I asked him if he had one wish to see or do something in his life what would it be . well before he answered i told him i wanted to go skydiving , but i would love ito one day be able to afford to go to Paris ,France ,Greece and or Jamaica. Well he replied back he has always dreamed of going to Paris ,France also I thoughtthat was awesome . Opera I guess what Im asking for is help please . His dad and are are supposed to get married but we just cant afford it and i would love my son to be in our wedding that would mean so much to me and him . OMGthat would be awesome . I promised him that i would do whatever i had to to make sure he got to do the things he wanted to before he leaves us and i meant it . If you cant help us i understand Opera , thanks for at least taking the time to read this . I will stop at nothing I will continue trying until my son gets his wish . Thanks for your time

    Oprah, You can make my dream come true by helping me pay off my house which is a one bedroom home and give my son and me a bedroom. We got the house because it was in the country and we had always wanted in the country but we are a family of 4 and the only one with a bedroom is my teenage daughter. The house is small but it is where we want to be. I wish some day someone would at least make one of my dreams come true.I'm working 2 jobs and still can't get no rooms built and my husband needs to fix our heat. Last winter the only way we could heat our home was our cook stove. I would like your personnel email address so i copuld at least have someone that i could talk to. I get so depressed and no one to talk to about anything.

    My mom wants to meet you soooo bad,she loves you!!!! She is a korean woman around so and so age.... OLD. LOL!! She has been watching you as well as I for many years and would love to meet you before her "passing"... She is so healthy, I know she'll never stop bothering me!!LOL She's a great mom and grandmother, if me and my sister would have listened to her I think we would have been better!! We were'nt the best in the begining of our quest called life but "MOM" was still there with her stuborne self to keep us from falling, just like other moms have been doing since the begining of time!!! I could go on and on about my mom, I know you've heard it all a million times but if you met her I bet you would have a good time!!!! Thanks for listening...

    Hi Oprah, I think that life is a strange place. For some of us we give and give and never get anything in return but old age. One day you wake up and don't know where all the years went, but the signs of them are all over your face. If I could have a dream come true it would be to have the money to have a couple procedures done to bring the outside of me back in line with what I see on the inside. I am very blessed with Love and family I just want to get my groove back.

    Syalom,
    Dear Oprah. What a great work of you that makes someone's dreams come true. God Bless you and your family.
    Mam, my name is Ruth. I come from Jakarta, Indonesia. I have a big dream. Which is I want to marry my next husband, his name is Johan Christian. We've been 7 years 5 months trough our relkationship. The problem we're not getting married is my mom not give a permit for our relation. Because he is from Javanese, and I'm from Bataknese. But, God created people with each different to make a unity in every aspect. That's why we struggle for our love. But we don't have enough money to make a wedding like my mom wish for. She will permit us if Johan woul give money to my mom Rp. 50.000.000 in Indonesia currency. Maybe $ 60000. And use Bataknese wedding ceremony. Maybe if u could help me to solve my problem, wheter in every way. I can't imagine. And say thanks a lot to Jesus, who let you help others.
    That's my biggest dream dear Oprah. Thanks for reading my write.
    God Bless You......

    It seems everyone has a dream. I just would love a place I can call home. Home for my 3 children. Being a single parent who cannot stay healthy if my life depended on it...but I am alive. I may be ill, but I make it to work every day. I work at a local Health Dept. for our HIV/AIDS program. My pay is little, but I do have a job that I am proud of. I not only lost my home last year, but I also lost my fiancee. I would do almost anything to be able to have a home again for my family. I would pay for the home. I just cant get a loan or come up with the down payment. Its heartwrenching knowing that the 4 of us are stuck in a two bedroom apartment that has sewage fume issues. We will deal with what life gives us, but a home would be more than a dream.

My fiance is a very sick person and if i had a job that offers me a very good salary i would be able to help her but unfortunatly i cant, i was wondering if u can help us get a little 2 bedroom flat 'cause we cant afford it.

    Dear Whom this may concern,

    My Christmas wish is for my parents to have some money because we are going through a tough time right now. It's been like this for the past 2 years now, and I don't want my family to be depressed on Christmas. I love my parents and It's really hard seeing them unhappy because they can't do enough for me and my two brothers. I'm not selfish and I dont want my parents to have this money just to get me things, I just want them to be happy, and I want to be able to see my family back to the way we were. My parents try the best they can to support me and my brothers, and im thankful for that.

    For instance, I know you wouldn't like to see your parents struggle and being depressed. I hate seeing them like this and it makes me very sad. I know theres millions of people writing these essays to you and write something really sad to try and make you feel bad for them. I'm not trying to say those people aren't telling the truth, and I'm not trying to make you feel bad for me. All I'm asking for is your help. I try and help by trying to get a job, but I'm only 15 years old, and It's kinda hard. My parents tell me not to worry about it, and that everythings ok, but It's not.

    In fact, when I'm in my room I can hear my parents arguing about money, and wanting to make everything right. I especially don't want the arguing to make my parents split up. It's hard enough as It Is with people losing their jobs, and people not having a place to live. My family's been through this and as I said are still struggling. I've heard several times that we might not have a roof over our head in a couple weeks. It's not easy to have to think about that. We have not had a refrigerator for about a month now. It's broke and my parents can't afford to fix it.

    Currently, My mom's job hasn't been having her work. It's been hard because my dad is the only one working right now to support all five of us. Like I said, I love my parents, and It Is hard to see them unhappy. I don't want a perfect/rich life, sometimes you need to be thankful for having ur family around you, not for gifts or expensive things. I love Christmas, and similarly to what I said before I don't want this just to get things from my parents. I'm really into the Christmas spirit. To me Christmas is about loving one another, and being with the ones you love.

    In the end, my family means the most to me. I will try everything I can to make things alright. I am just asking for this wish to come true. I'm not asking for too much, just something to help my family and I have a wonderful Christmas. Thank you for this opportunity.

    Sincerely,
    Briana

    Hi Oprah, I have never asked for anything before, there comes a time when an opportunity opens up and something tells me I should follow my intuition and go for it.
    I lost my job of 15 years, to a bully boss, the toxic kind, the Jekyl & Hyde type, and I had no support. My CEO was scared of her, he knew wrong was done, but he did nothing. she did everything to me, took all my work away, lied about me, ripped m yoffice apart, made false accusations of my past work being all wrong, work from years ago, she reported them wrong. She was the manager, who may not know how to do the job, but wanted control. I got suspended cause I didn't move her office furniture, me a 90 lb cancer survivor on the mend, move her office, she who is 200 lbs, wanted me to move her office. she labeled this insubordinaton – not following direction. she even took my work files apart from the past years, and redid them as she thought was the right way........it goes on and on, it is scarey, i may have forgiven, but it is hard to forget, the scars are slowly fading, but i was hurt.
    and i lost my job while on sick leave. my job of 15 years.
    i am a cancer survivor and at the time, was in healing stage, and my life is not normal as it use to be, but i am a fighter.
    now i have a job that pays minimum and i have mortgage to my house, i am a single parent. if someone can help me with my mortgage, is what i dream of...........i wish i wish.........
    thank you

    My wish is to see my fiancee get his son back. My fiancee's mother took the child and has done everything she can to keep his father away from him. She even took him out of the state we live in. I'm not asking for money, although money would help us get an attorney. What we need more than money is a good attorney that will listen and fight for my fiancee. I am all he has right now but it is such a difficult and painful ordeal. I haven't listed all of the deails obviously but I will shout this story from the rooftops if it means I can have an attorney to help him.

    Dear Oprah'
    My lovely daughter Brittany, 19 yrs old has just been diagnosed with MDS cancer. The only cure for this is a bone marrow transplant, without it she will eventually get accute myeloid leukemia. My daughter doesn't smoke, take drugs nor does she drink alcohol. She has been a health nut for the last year. Her insurance won't pay to have her siblings tested, starting Feb 2011 she will have to pay her insurance premiums to keep her insurance going and then the most lousy part of this insurance is they will only cover $100,000 in medical bills because she is unable to work.. I am her mother and disabled due to rheumatoid arthritis. I was working parttime as a medical assistant and decided to take time off due to the weather changing into the colder months tends to flare up my arthritis severely and i gey sick easier due to my immune system. My very first day not working was when I found out what was wrong with my daughter. I feel as if God had worked it out this way. We have a very strong support team and many volunteers to help get benefits going to help find bone marrow doners. I am surprised at the number of people out there that are unaware of the fact that there is such a thing as becoming a marrow doner. My daughter is a very special youg lady, she tells people all the time that her mother is also her best friend. She text me every evening from her apartment goodnight and that she loves me. Any thing that you could possibly do to help our situation would be greatly appreciated. As for now we our saying some pretty strong prayers along with our family and friends.

    May God be with you today, tomorrow and always

    Dear Oprah
    My name is Gina I am 43 years old and very over weight. I am married with one son. 20 years ago this month I lost my father to cancer food was my only way out. When my dad died I was at 185 lbs now I am a very large 385 lbs. I just curled up in food that made me feel good now I am paying for it. I have high blood pressure, knees are hurting and always out of breath. I know when I go out people look at me and make fun of me and it hurts. I feel that this has hurt me in my job as well by being passed up for advancement. To make things even worse for me is that I lost my middle sister to cancer in April of this year, again I go to food. My insurance will not cover any knd of weight loss surgery or meds. I have tried weight loss diets of all kinds and will loose 20 to 30 lbs and gain it back and more. I used to ride and train horses and now when I go to a stable they will not let me ride because I am too big. This just kills me, I know sometimes you make dreams come true, if you see it in your heart that this is a dream worth making please I ask you to help me.

    Oprah, I was just informed by a friend that you were going to make some peoples dreams come true. I grew up in a home where there was violence. My parents split up when I was about 12. We chose to live with our father, so my mother moved away and went to school so that she could get a job and come back for us. During that time, my father re-married and moved away with his new wife, leaving me and my younger sister to fend for ourselves. I ended up being homeless for some time, living in the back of a station wagon. I found a place to stay temporarily and got a job. I ended up working 5 jobs at one time to support myself. I had to quit school since I was homeless, so I ended up getting my GED. I have always wanted to go to college and get a degree, but couldn't do it working so many jobs and since I didn't finish school, I never landed a job that paid very well or enough to be able to pay for school. I tried to get financing or grants, but I could never qualify for any of it. If you can answer my dream of going to college to get a degree I would really appreciate it. I am now in my 40's and would like to accomplish something.

(ACTS OF RANDOM KINDNESS) which is a motto i live by daily, i am writing this to you out utter desperation and no where to go from here, i know it could be worse my situation and i am very blessed to have what i have, but it is making me miserable to not have the things i need to run a household of 3 kids and a wonderful husband, we dont have cancer or any other illness, only that we starte our family earily and never got college degrees and there for we work way to hard for the little money we make, but thats is fine we are happy to have jobs these days and we have greatful children, i am asking you to for a laundry room addition to our small cbs home that we own, i am forced to do laundry outside in the rural part of town i live in is full of insects and i am tired of getting stung by wasp lol, it was poorly built on when we bought the house and the 3 hurricans that hit floirda took it with them and i will be more than willing to provide pictures of what it looks like now. my house is only 1200sq no garage or storage or laundry room, this maybe nothing to some but for a busy mom of 3 who works 2 jobs just make sure the kids have everything i didnt , it would mean the world to us if you would consider making our modest dream come true! and i would be eternally grateful thank you for taking time to read my vent list , lots of love from us in central florida

    Oprah, my dream is to move to Cathedral City California. I have been good to many people and put them before myself. Now I live with a few diseases and reached out to family and other and none of them can help me. I moved away from California after retiring from a good job to be with my partner. My partner wants to move on with his life after 12 years with me. I want a second change at happiness before I leave this earth. I get extremely depressed and at times wonder why I am still alive. I have lost faith and trust in people and at the lowest point in my life. I just want a small mobile home to call my own. I pray every night and wait for God to answer my prayer and do not think he hears me. Please help make my dream come true.

  69. Yolanda Richardson

    My name is Yolanda Richardson and I am a 22 year old mother to be. To start almost five years ago I was arrested because of what a friend did. And being young and dumb I took all the blame. Which is a decision I will regret all my life. Since the arrest I have been suffering to get a job and find shelter. I was not convicted of the felony charge but every time I walk into a job interview or apply for a place to stay I am turned down. I am a good person and all I really need is a chance. But it seems that people only see my past and unfortunately that is what they judge me by. I am really unprepared for this baby and afraid of being a mother. Being unable to get a job makes me feel that I will not be able to provide for another. My biggest fear above all is that I want be able to provide proper shelter to my unborn child. In the past four years I have lived in five different locations with five different friends. It has been horrible and I don't want to take my child through that because of my mistake. I really need your help to assist me in providing secure shelter for me and my child. I want to that you for hearing my story.

    Oprah ,
    I am a single mother who has been trying her hardest to give my daughter the best.I had a goal to work and go to school to make a better life for her. But in June of this year I was laid off. But now I am just attending Mount Olive College to get my life together. And dont get me wrong the classes are hard enough by their self. But its even harder trying to not stress about the bills. So all I ask is if you could grant my wish of $5,000.00 that would cover all my bills for the next 4 months. That way I can really focus on school and have more time for a job to accept me for employment. But if my wish doesnt make it to you then all I can say is Thank you for taking the time out to read my wish.
    Much love to you Oprah and may you have many more blessings.

    Oprah, what a great ride. Thanks so much for all you have done and to all the people you have helped. My dream would be to get my normal life back. I grew up with a dad who was an aolcholic I was abused by him and drunk friends until I left home at 19. It took years to get my life up and running but I did. Then 3 years ago I had surgery, I wasn't given proper anest. when I felt the knife cutting me it took me back to to the childhood abuse. I now have alot of pain and a disfigured hand, then 3 months later my husband was having chest pain. We went to the same hospital and my husband was given too much morphine and flatlined while our children watched. 3 more months and my son starts pannic attacks due to what he saw that morning. We've had such a hard time but it won;t stop In March of this year due to what happened to my husbandin the ER he lost his job in law inforcement. We lost our health insurance and now we're loosing our home. My heart breaks each day is worry, scared, my heart races, seems to be one long pannic attack. My dream would be to get my family's life back. Our family has much love and its what has gotten us this far but this has been going on for so long. I don't want our family to have to suffer anymore and I want us to continue with the happiness we had before all this trauma started. Just a normal simple life of love and without the fear of no place to go and no way to pay medical bills. Please let me tell you the full story. Tears still flowing..Teresa

      MOM, I read your wish. I am 15 and would like to say that my mother has been the best. She has had a hard life and even today with being disabled she has always looked out for the best for our family (me, my brother and my dad). She is always last in everything we have always come first. I have watched my mother cry and worry since my dad lost his job and my wish would be for someone to give us back our home and the happiness we had before the trauma that our family has had to face. Mom has taught us faith and to trust God to take care of us. Put him first and all things will be to the good. Please take away my mothers tears and give us back a home and the happiness we had. Someone out there must have a heart to want to help those who are really in need and we are. Make our dream come true someone PLEASE!! I Love You Mom!! You're the GREATEST!!!! LINDSEY

    Hi Oprah, I am not asking for a dream of mine to come true but for someone I just recently met. My fiance Brad and I are planning our wedding and had decided to have it on a boat on Balboa bay in Newport Beach, Ca. We had made lots of appointments to meet with many companies that day to compare costs etc. as our funds are very limited but we do have good credit and credit cards. We drove from where we live in arizona to newport to meet and tour all the boats. We found out it was very reasonable and included everything. On our last tour we meet another couple that were very cute and wanting to have a wedding around the same time and for about 50 people same as us. They had 2 very small children and told us how hard it was for them to be able to check out the boats with 2 small kids. We told them that we had checked out alot of compaines and offered them all our information. We traded numbers and I gave them a call. I found out that they were hit hard by the economy and had lost their home 3 years ago. When they recieved their 2 week eviction notice was the same time they found out her mother had only 2 weeks to live. They had been homleless and stayed were they could and in really bad areas. They now are in an appartment and wanting to be the first in the family to have a real wedding. she told me to save costs she was asking the company she met with if they could not use the DJ or the photographer to help save on costs. It really hit me that they would not have pictures of their wedding and there would be no dancing to celebrate their special day. My wish for them is to have a wedding they would like and be able to remember. I know our quote was 6,500.00 and they were expecting the same number of people as us and on a sunday or monday as well to save on costs. I wanted to see if you could help this nice couple out. Thank you.

I know you are only one person and cannot “Save the World’ but you can continue to be the best you can be and our world will benefit from your kindness.

    Dear Oprah; If I would have my wish come true it would mostly have to do with my family, I would gladly tell you about them, but not here. I always used to wonder if completeing my Bachelors degree would help me get a good job. I have a Medical Assistant diploma and an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice, but have never finished my bachelors and Minor in Native American Studies (about 1, 1/12 years) I had paid for my undergraduate degree doing 1 FT job and 1 PT job, but things happened in my family plus I got a divorce and could no longer pay my own way. I took out loans for the Associate degree and am working on paying this off. I don't want to be greedy, so maybe, just maybe I would like a "little" help. Plus all the years you have been on tv, I have not been on a vacation or been able to justify spending the money to come and see a show when bills are due. I would like to see one of your last shows, maybe one of your "Most Wonderful Christmas shows". I THINK MY HEALTH IS ACTUALLY A GOOD PLACE TO ASK FOR HELP WITH. COULD YOU MAYBE HELP WITH A PERSONAL TRAINER. DUE TO A MAJOR CAR ACCIDENT A FEW YEARS AGO, I HAVE TROUBLE WITH MY KNEES, WHICH IS NOT HELPED ANY BY BEING 35-50 POUNDS OVERWEIGHT.

    There are so many things that would make me happy, actually just having a chance to sit down and have a long lunch with you would be ok too.

    Or after reading some of these other entries, I believe that Kae and Michelle could use some help my requests seem so trivial in comparrison.

    I have enjoyed your shows when able to watch them, you have had a good, long and enciteful career, you are an example of what can happen by beeing in the right place at the right time. God Bless, Love Harley

    My dream is to have a bank finanace a small business loan for about $50,000 to renovate an old building I purchased under an article of agreement, to open a chiropractic office in a small rural commnity that I live in. My wife is a teacher who teaches near by in a low income district. Our dream for the past 2 years was to open a clinic and provide care for our smalll commnity
    I am 40 years old and changed careers from a carpenter to a chiropractor and with this tight economy, we do not qualify for a loan.My student loans are in an excess of $150,00 and we still owe $155,000 on our house and we have been turned down for a loan for this reason.

That is the age i left him in CA and moved to Denali Park AK Then the bottom fell out of that occupation and he had to go on unemployment. for 2 years. I was a hairdresser for 25 and now he wants to be a barber. I was surprised that he would want to end up doing hair like I did. I did support him with no child support for 18 years. It would be nice to help him get a scolarship since I only work for our resort up here 6 months.

    Hi Oprah, I'm turning 50 Oct. 2, 2010. I lost my job after losing my partner inlife 2/12 yrs. ago. When he pasted his daughter came in and took EVERYTHING from me. I have no car, did find a doublewide mobile home with owner financing. I have Chrone's disease and now it's hard to find a job, (believe me I've filled out enough apps on line but no luck.) But now I have to job (no money coming in, family, friends have been helping me) God bless them, they are wonderful......But if I could get some help until I can get on my feet with car house or anything, I would love you forever, not that I don't already. I've never had anything good happen to me since my partner pasted, and all I do is cry and ask God "why".....which I know you're not suppose to question him, but I'm at the end of my rope...I'm so depressed that I've even contiplated ended things then I think of my 5 yr old grandson and he keeps me going. Sorry this is sooo long...But please help me, if nothing else maybe you can influence someone to give me a job. I don't mind working. God be with you and thank you for reading my letter.......Cathy from SC

    Hello Oprah,
    It has been inspiring watching you over the past years. It has to be very rewarding to have your life's dreams and wishes come true. I am aware that hard work and perservance pays off. I'm 64 yrs old, retired and since being retired I have taken care of my mother who is stricken with alzhiemers and dementia.
    My dream would be just having some real ME time just for me to relax and be able to afford it.
    Congratulations and best wishes!!

    Oprah,
    My dream is to have my Santa Reward Card Set with a large company so more children will have a chance to experience it and have something to look forward to 2 wks before Christmas. Mother's &children love it! I have had a copyright on it since 2005 and have sold a couple of thousand. My dream is to go big! I would like to update the card and packaging. I would love for you to help me connect with the right people. I don't have the money to get started on my own that is the reason I haven't been able to sell more. I will be willing to give a % of sales to children charities. Thank you for all you have done. Please contact me if you would like to see or hear more. Thanks!

    Dear Oprah,

    My dream would be to recognize the Life Flight, EMS, Firefighters, police officers, witnesses, doctors and nurses that helped save my parents lives on July 16th, 2009 in Bastrop, Texas. My parents were in an car accident that left my dad with a broken neck in 4 places and he is now a C6 Quad. My mom had minor injuries, and is still in physical therapy. It has been a long road to recovery and healing for all of us over the last year and we are still on it. I'm FOREVER grateful to these heroes for giving me more time with my parents. We still have not gotten to thank them in person because it brings me to tears every time I think of what I would say. These people are there in the most critical moments of helplessness in others lives. They not only lives, they are saving families. Not a day has gone by in the last year that I have not thought of them and how grateful I am that each one of them were there at the moments when my parents needed them most. Despite the injuries my mom, but especially my dad have endured because of the accident, our family is so happy that they are alive and we have been given more time with both of them. I am still trying to find a way to just say THANK YOU, but I can't find words in the English language to express just how I feel. I would love any ideas you may have to make my dream of thanking my heroes come true.

    I have a wish... can you please ask Wells Fargo to modify our home loan? My boyfriend lost his job 18 months ago and they have rejected our modification twice. We don't want to move... we want to stay where we are in California. The banks just don't want to help those who want to help themselves. Can you help? Thanks.

    My dream would be for my husband and I to be able to live the rest of our lives (we're 50) in peace and without three 20 something year olds stressing us out and draining us of everything we have to give. We need some help. It would be great if you could hook us up with Dr. Phil and hopefully he could help us ALL with this challenge. My husband and I love each other dearly and we're celebrating our 25th anniversary Oct. 5 this year. Help us get rid of these kids (young
    men)!!! May God continue to bless and keep you always.

    Oprah,
    Thank you for all of the wonderful years you have given to us, your loyal viewers. I wish you the best in your next adventure in your life. My wish is not for myself but for my husband. He has a very messy and unorganized garage and workshop. He has worked on trying to organize them but I believe he is so overwhelmed by so much stuff that he just doesn't know what he should do first. My husband also has alot of medical issues and it is very hard for him to spend a lot of time organizing and cleaning. He is on disability and I have a full time job as an Administrative Assistant. My husband and I would be ever so greatful if this wish were to come true. The very best to you Oprah.

If I could have 1 wish it would be to pay off my childrens college education; being a mother of five has not been easy, but when one of my childrens teacher told him that he or his brothers & sister would never go to college they would be a statistic; made me upset and encourage them to go it would be nice to prove this teacher wrong. thank you and May God contiue to Bless you for all the good you have done.

    Dear Oprah,
    You are a shining example of what we should all strive to be like. And I don't mean just by giving away money or "stuff". What you give to the world is so much more. You give of yourself – from your very soul – without judgment, without condition and without expectation. You have already given me, and so many others, more than you could possibly know: an ideal after which to strive. I am grateful for your positive gifts to this planet and its people, and humbled by your example. May you continue to enjoy a purpose-filled life. Mazel Tov!

As an avid animal lover, my only wish would be to open a kill-free foundation for cats and dogs, so they can live out their lives in peace and in good health. As you know, that takes money and community support. Again, thanks for your positive influence and for making people aware that personal growth is a good thing and necessary for people to make a true difference in the world.

    Hi, Miss Oprah; I wish you the best for your future. You will be missed. You are a very special person. I only have one wish that I have been answering those e-mails that if you send this to 7 people your wish will come true. Well it hasn't. The only wish I have is that one day my mom can walk the sandy beaches and swim in the ocean again. She has had 2 hip replacements on the same hip, a bone extension in her thigh same leg with a new process using a cadaver bone. She is still in a lot of pain and now the doctors are calling her pain like everything else arthritus, which is in her back. Because she is 81 there doesn't seem like anymore can be done. That is my wish. Thank you.

    Dear Oprah,I find it very amusing when people write on your blog asking for something but yet in return will not have done the same thing as you have done.People ask for money,gifts,etc. but still will not be satisfied after the material things are either paid off or eliminated-because in some way they will return to the same problems.The deed you are doing is GOOD,but ask of those who want something what they will give back in return.

If so, I would have time to work with our youth on having a life outside of drugs, violence, and the fantasies of rap stars and basketball players. Unfortunately, our youth here have few role models to look up to other than what they see on tv. SAD...I know.

    My sister has had a most difficult life. She has worked hard and borne most of it alone. After finally finding a wonderful man to share the rest of it with her, again tragedy, he has brain cancer. He is a wonderful person, works 2 jobs even now; they both could us a break. They have limited resources and little insurance, his prognosis is not good and he is past the point of surgery; he could not pay for it you see, such is the burden of those with not insurance or independent means. If I could have a dream come true it would be for them to have some special time together, without having to worry about work for just a little while, something she will be able to hold onto always. They are both so good, so caring for others, they deserve so much more. Thank you for the chance to voice my dream, you too are a good person.. God bless you.
