ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the wishing well in Dorchester, Massachusetts built by resident and community organizer Thomas Kelly in 1973. It was built to cover an unsightly water spigot, but soon enough people from the neighborhood started dropping in coins and making wishes. Thomas would never think of keeping the money. He donated the coins from the well to the church for the needy people in the community.
