Abstract: This paper discusses the concept of a network-mediated system for making wishes and sending them remotely to people whom we care about. Particularly at occurrences of critical events, i.e. crises, when shared emotional connection [1] and group bond is most likely to develop, we believe this system will have positive emotion effects on both the wish-senders and the wishreceivers. We propose this to be a novelty design of community-ware, and believe it has strong potentials in utilizing information technologies to turn ‘digital divide’ into ‘digital cohesion’. [2]
