On August 20, 2019, the Be A Friend Project of See The Wish came into its own as a charitable not-for-profit 501c3 corporation! Going forward, the Be A Friend Project, Inc., will hold the exclusive rights to license "It's Easy!" to schools.

Over the next few months, you will see our website and social media switching over from See The Wish to the Be A Friend Project, Inc.  By January 2020, after 11 years, See The Wish will be dissolved, yet it will live forever as the beginnings of our story, and its wonderful anti-bullying, pro-empathy musical and project will carry on as its legacy and our primary focus.

STAY FRIEND STRONG WITH US through these mostly administrative changes! THANK YOU!
