"I am a teacher
of children in grades 2 - 6. Your rules for safety while corresponding
match ones I had developed. Your mission statement is fantastic.
Keep up the effort! Thank you,"
"As a mom I
just wanted to say this is a great place for my daughter. I
feel confident that she will meet new and interesting friends."
"Thank you for
your timely response and explanation to my daughter's question.
In this age of computers, voice mail etc. it is a pleasure to
get a response from a "real person". Thank you again."
"Your site is
the greatest. Thanks!"
"Thank you so
much for making this site possible, I really enjoy having a
"I got my May
'97 Consumer Reports yesterday and they have a large article
on children online. One of their side stories is called "Cyberspace:
the promise" subtitled "Four ways the web serves children
well." Under the section "Meeting other children"
it says, in part: The Web is a bit riskier; it's harder to check
a keypal's identity. We found better security at A Girl's World
(www.agirlsworld.com), where users communicate through numbers
similar to a post-office box, so they don't have to disclose
their e-mail address. I'm impressed."
"I think this Penpal Program is so cool. I'm already a
member and I have found a penpal. I'm going to introduce this
to my friends. I love this website, so keep up the good work
My daughter is in
the penpal club and she is having a lot of fun on it. She has
trouble making friends. This penpal club has given her so many
friends, she talks about them all the time! It is a wonderful
experience for her. Keep up the good work!

I wanted to tell you how much things have worked out for me.
I have ten penpals! Thank you!
"This club is so cool!"
Lots of fun."
"I love your
site. Thank you for making it.
This club is fantastic!
My daugher has been enjoying every minute. Thanks A Lot!
Oshie's Mom... Lisa
really very impressed that you take the time to "watch
over" these girls
so carefully! Makes me feel assured that Savvy will be safe
on your site."
customer service is great, and as a parent, I really appreciate
all the little "extras".
Thank you again, Tina
Just a quick note (from a penpal's dad) to say thanks. This
really looks like a great site for my daughter. She's pretty
keen about it. Well done."
I got my Granddaughter involved in your Pen Pal Club for the
main reason to have her practice her grammer during the summer
before she entered Middle School and hopefully meet a a couple
of friends along the way. This has been really a nice little
experience for her. She kind of fought it at first because she
didn't want to write letters, BUT...when she started to recieve
replies from some back, that changed things! She is doing more
and more and I am very pleased with this whole thing! Melaina
is the type that is always OUTSIDE and very involved with her
friends. She has her own computer and hardly uses it except
for school research or playing games. She AND I have been exploring
your Site and have already recommended it to a couple of her
cousins and she has told several friends about you. Thank You
for having this available. Thanks again!

"...All four penpals
are following the rules perfectly. Serena's overseas penpals are
interested in what our part of the world looks like. Her stateside
penpals discuss school, homework, the weather, music and movies.
Every day there are messages and never are the girls at a loss
for conversation. No broken rules...no inappropriate questions...just
good, clean, safe letters amongst twelve year old girls who, despite
geographic distance, have a whole lot in common."
Sal (Serena's dad)
"Thanks for answering
our questions so quickly - that is unusual but very appreciated,
since the few times I have emailed questions to web sites I've
gotten automated emails saying they'll get back to me, but they
never did. Those web sites could take a few lessons in customer
service from you!"
wanted to register a complement. My daughter is in the penpal
club and she just loves it here! This club is amazing! She has
problems making friends at school and this penpal club has given
her many friends. I think it's wonderful that the girls can see
who is online and see if their mail has been opened. Thanks again
for making the club! - Mrs. Keeley
I love this club. I
am from Alabama, but I've already met two girls from out of the
country! It's really interesting to learn what it's like in India
and England, where they are from. I also have met a lot more new
friends! I love how this club has a penpal system - I can find
so many new friends! One more thing -I love the profiles. Making
them, reading them, and making friends by them. Please keep up
the good work! Thanks! - Emily (bookworm4ever)
