If you’re a girl between the ages of 7 and 17, and you’re hoping to meet new friends with which to chat online, join the Circle of Friends Pen Pal Club where you can safely meet others. The girls only award-winning club has been online since 1997 and offers a safe environment for young girls to meet friends their own ages.
The site protects the email addresses of its members, offers options to block email from certain other members, if needed, and allows girls to write mass emails to send to many friends at once. Since the club has members across the globe, friends can be made locally, nationally or around the world.
The Circle of Friends Club has a special interest search so that girls who are, for example, interested in sports, can find other friends that have the same interests. Members can create their own page at Circle of Friends where they can introduce others to themselves, their family or their pets. You can even customize the look of the club by choosing dolphins, flowers or other graphics.
Although there is a minimal charge to join the club – $12 per year – you’ll feel safe knowing your daughter or other girl relative is safe and that her privacy is protected. There’s a short list of rules, and if the rules are broken, the member will be invalidated.
Rules are general: The club is only for girls who are between the ages of 7 and 17. You must stay active in the club, that is, you must send at least one pen pal letter every 30 days, or membership will be cancelled. But, to reactivate your membership, simply send another pen pal letter.
Anyone reported for using foul language in their letters will be banned. The same goes for harassment or insults. Topics need to be “G” rated since this is a family site. No chain letters are acceptable.
No one is allowed to put personal information in letters, posts or email. Personal info includes email addresses, last name, phone number, mailing address, city or school. It’s also against the rules to ask a member to contact another member outside of the club. Url’s that send a member to a site where personal info is contained is taboo.
Every member needs parental okay to become a member at the Circle of Friends Club. Members also need to keep a valid email address at all times. They also ask that you don’t take on more pen pals than you can actually write to. It’s important that a member receives an email back, if they write to a pen pal, so if you have hundreds of pen pals you simply won’t be able to return letters to each and every one of them, so limit yourself to a number you can handle.
Girls looking for online friends won’t find a safer site than the Circle of Friends Club. In addition, they’ll have a chance to meet other girls from around the world, learn their cultures, and establish friendships that could last forever. Parents, have a look at the site and help your daughter sign up. She’ll really enjoy this site!
