Launching Today: A Child Writes

ACW 125 ButtonAshley is just a few months away from becoming a teenager. While all of her friends are getting cool new cell phones, laptops, and facebook account, Ashley sits on the sidelines and watches. Call me over-protective. Call me old fashioned, but no 12 year old needs a smart phone. Ever.

Anyway – back to the matter at hand. I’m very, very selective about what websites Ashley can visit on the computer. (Big Shock, I know!) I want to know that she’s doing something productive and visiting a SAFE website.

That’s why I’ve fallen in love with A Child Writes. It’s a great place for Ashley to make new friends, do something good for charity, and just have a great time!

Here’s some information about them:

A Child Writes is a free, safe envi­ron­ment for kids to come together, be matched with online Pen­Pals and write to one another with­out the need to share per­sonal infor­ma­tion.  Mem­bers are invited to join fun, mod­er­ated online par­ties hosted on the A Child Writes site, which gives them the oppor­tu­nity to inter­act with other chil­dren within the same age range.  Dur­ing the mod­er­ated par­ties the con­ver­sa­tion will be guided on a spe­cific topic with fun age appro­pri­ate games and prizes to win.  There will never be non-moderated chats open on A Child Writes.

A Child Writes will fea­ture a dif­fer­ent cause, char­ity or orga­ni­za­tion each month.  All mem­bers are encour­aged to cre­ate a card, color a pic­ture or make a small craft to be dis­trib­uted to those affected by or involved with the fea­tured cause.  At the end of each month A Child Writes will hold a con­test where three win­ners will be ran­domly cho­sen out of the mem­bers who sent in a card to ben­e­fit that month’s cause.  The prizes will be allo­cated as fol­lows: one grand prize and two run­ner up prizes.  Prizes will vary each month.

A Child Writes offers a Par­ent Resource area includ­ing infor­ma­tive arti­cles and per­sonal expe­ri­ences shared by experts in the field of the fea­tured cause.  These arti­cles will help the par­ents bet­ter under­stand the cause being fea­tured as well as pro­vide tips and insight on how to teach their chil­dren about their com­mu­ni­ties around them.

Head over to A Child Writes and create an account for your child today. Let’s keep our kids safe, and show them how much of a difference they can make in their community and in the world!

And don’t forget: You can also Follow A Child Writes on twitter and become a fan on facebook.

Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post in anyway. Just want to spread the word about a new website, A Child Writes, with my readers.
