Amazing Kids! Penpals Program

Dear Amazing Kids!’ Friends and Supporters, remedy

Thank you so much for visiting the Amazing Kids! website, life
amazing-kids.org. Welcome!  I am delighted to have you join us, cialis
and our nearly 1 million other website visitors each year, on our exciting journey, as we work to inspire, guide and support our children today so they may become happy, productive and fulfilled citizens of tomorrow.

I firmly believe that with the right guidance, and a positive “can do” attitude that we in turn can teach our children, our kids can grow up to have the bright future, and a successful and fulfilling lives as adults, which they so richly deserve.

I invite you to take sit back, relax and some time to explore the wonderful and educationally enriching resources which we offer on our award-winning website.
Please be sure to read through our website and magazine with your child or students, as I believe it presents a wonderful opportunity to share some special time together, exploring the inspiring work of other kids. In doing so, you can help inspire the children in your lives to explore and discover their own unique gifts, abilities and interests.

At the same time, you are invited to encourage your children or students to submit their writing or art for our publication (read our Submission guidelines at:  http://amazing-kids.org/mag/write-for-us/) or for our fun, creative contests (http://amazing-kids.org/mag/contests/).  Seeing their creative work published on such a “high profile” website as amazing-kids.org, is truly motivating for many kids. You just might find that your previously “reluctant” readers or writers may blossom when given the opportunity to see their work recognized online!

Finally, after reading our website, if you have any questions or comments you’d like to share, please feel free to connect with us through our Facebook page, blog or Twitter feed, to tell us how we’re doing, or to offer suggestions or ask questions.  We’d love to hear from you!

P.S. –  I am delighted to report that we were recently honored to be selected as one of the Top 24 “Great Web Sites for Kids” by the American Library Association (ALA), specifically under the category:  “Writing by Kids.” It feels good knowing our work is being validated by other such well-respected educational organizations like the ALA.  Thank you, ALA!

As the founder and president of Amazing Kids!, I have had the privilege and honor to serve as the mentor to all the kids who work on our magazine over the past 11+ years and 42+ issues. I do feel like a mother hen sometimes, so I hope you’ll allow me this moment to say just how proud I am of all of our kids who write for and edit our Amazing Kids! Online Magazine.  Way to go, Team!

P.S.S. – I’d like to personally invite you to consider making a donation to show your support for our work and the work of our kids.  As a small non-profit organization, we rely on the support and donations from people like you.  Like most other charitable organizations in this struggling economy, we need your support more than ever, so we can continue to help our kids! If you are in a position to give, please do so today using our secure online donation form at: http:// amazingkids.kintera.org/amazing-kids

Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?
The Amazing Kids! PenPals Program is a traditional, letter writing pen pal program, available to all children ages 5-17. The cost is $10 per child or student. Teachers and groups of 15 or more receive a 50% discount.

Why is there a fee?
We are a small, all-volunteer non-profit organization, and the fees help cover our cost of running the program.

How did the Amazing Kids! PenPals begin?
The Amazing Kids! PenPals program began as a way of reaching out to the children affected by the devastating hurricanes of 2005. Our hope was that by matching young hurricane survivors with a new pen pal (“buddy”), we could help them in their recovery from the trauma many experienced due to the hurricanes.
The program is now available to all children, worldwide. We continue to welcome teachers, youth groups or agencies who work with hurricane survivors or survivors of any trauma to register their students as well.

How does it work?
Parents, teachers, agency directors, etc. sign up their students using the appropriate links below. Amazing Kids! will match students of the same gender and age with other students who may share similar interests and hobbies, based on the information provided on the registration form.

I’ve completed all three forms and made my payment. What happens next?
Someone from Amazing Kids! will contact you once a match has been found. You will be asked to call the other parent, teacher or group leader of the pen pal Amazing Kids! has selected for your child or student. If both adults agree that the pen pal match is a good one, then the students may begin writing to each other. If the match is determined not to be a good one, Amazing Kids! will try and find an alternative match.

Thanks for being a Pal™!

The program is now available to all children, worldwide. We continue to welcome teachers, youth groups or agencies who work with hurricane survivors or survivors of any trauma to register their students as well.

Introduction

Welcome to Amazing Kids! (amazing-kids.org), approved
a web-based children’s non-profit organization offering fun, injection
challenging, and self-motivating educational enrichment for kids and teens worldwide!
Founded in 1998, Amazing Kids!’ mission is to help inspire kids to discover their own unique gifts and to use them in positive and productive ways to make a difference in their lives and in the communities in which they live.


Amazing Kids! Founder and President Alyse Rome, a former educator and marketing executive, wanted to provide kids with a positive, uplifting alternative voice to the too-often negative and sensationalistic voice of the mass media and the news. She set out to create a safe and educationally enriching online environment where kids could read the success stories about their peers (the “Amazing Kids! of the Month”), so kids could learn from each other, and be motivated to become achievers in their own lives as well. Alyse saw the incredible educational potential of the online environment, and envisioned what would soon become known as a premiere safe, fun, and educationally enriching online destination for kids, their families and educators alike.


And so, the Amazing Kids!’ website, amazing-kids.org, was born. Over the years, the website has become widely known as a positive and inspiring place where kids’ amazing accomplishments are not only recognized, but celebrated. We’re proud to note that the Amazing Kids! website has become recognized as a place where kids learn the values of respect for others and the importance of working hard to achieve positive and productive goals, including learning how to work well with others to accomplish their goals.


The Amazing Kids! website, amazing-kids.org, is used around the world by educators in their classrooms, as well as educational textbooks publishers who publish our content in their textbooks and other media. We are proud to be featured in the Renzulli Learning System, an educational enrichment tool for educators used in classrooms around the world. (The Renzulli Learning System was developed by researchers at the University of Connecticut’s Neag Center for Gifted Education and Talent Development.) In addition, we are a favorite online educational destination for many homeschoolers and students and teachers from gifted and talented programs.


The award-winning, kid-created Amazing Kids! Online Magazine is one of Amazing Kids!’ many educational programs featured on their website. The online publication is known for featuring quality, creative, thoughtful and often thought-provoking written and artistic work written and edited by kids and teens. As a result, the Amazing Kids! website was recently recognized as one of the Top 24 “Great Web Sites for Kids” for 2010 by the American Library Association (ALA) specifically in the content area of “writing by kids.”


Through the Launch My Dream! initiative, a growing national movement aimed at helping our kids better prepare for their future by starting now. Amazing Kids! is working with others who are concerned for and care deeply about the future of our kids, especially given the current tough economic climate, including other non-profits, individuals, schools, businesses, corporations, as well as government partners. We are working with our partners to establish collaborative “Dream Teams” in our communities across the United States.These Dream Teams are helping local kids, one kid or one group of kids, and one community at a time, to create a plan and get access to the resources they’ll need to launch their dreams for their amazing future.


The inspiring “Amazing Kids! of the Month” stories feature the amazing accomplishments of everyday kids in our communities. You can find 12 years’ of these stories in our archives at: http://amazing-kids.org/kids.


The literacy-based Amazing Kids! PenPals program (http://amazing-kids.org/penpals) gives children the chance to build new friendships while practicing their literacy and communication skills they are learning in the classroom, in a “real-world,” and consequently, quite meaningful way. It is used by both parents and educators both in the U.S. and internationally and has been featured in Parenting Magazine and other publications as a quality resource for finding pen pals for children.


The Amazing Kids! of the Month stories, and the other literacy and creativity-building programs for kids found on the Amazing Kids!’ website are meant to inspire kids and teens to discover and explore their own gifts, and in doing so, we believe our children will have a greater opportunity to one day realize their amazing potential and launch their dreams.


Amazing Kids! ultimately hopes to lift our kids’ sites up to see the amazing possibilities that life has to offer them. Every child deserves to have a bright future. No child’s potential should ever go to waste!

Introduction

Welcome to Amazing Kids! (amazing-kids.org), approved
a web-based children’s non-profit organization offering fun, injection
challenging, and self-motivating educational enrichment for kids and teens worldwide!
Founded in 1998, Amazing Kids!’ mission is to help inspire kids to discover their own unique gifts and to use them in positive and productive ways to make a difference in their lives and in the communities in which they live.


Amazing Kids! Founder and President Alyse Rome, a former educator and marketing executive, wanted to provide kids with a positive, uplifting alternative voice to the too-often negative and sensationalistic voice of the mass media and the news. She set out to create a safe and educationally enriching online environment where kids could read the success stories about their peers (the “Amazing Kids! of the Month”), so kids could learn from each other, and be motivated to become achievers in their own lives as well. Alyse saw the incredible educational potential of the online environment, and envisioned what would soon become known as a premiere safe, fun, and educationally enriching online destination for kids, their families and educators alike.


And so, the Amazing Kids!’ website, amazing-kids.org, was born. Over the years, the website has become widely known as a positive and inspiring place where kids’ amazing accomplishments are not only recognized, but celebrated. We’re proud to note that the Amazing Kids! website has become recognized as a place where kids learn the values of respect for others and the importance of working hard to achieve positive and productive goals, including learning how to work well with others to accomplish their goals.


The Amazing Kids! website, amazing-kids.org, is used around the world by educators in their classrooms, as well as educational textbooks publishers who publish our content in their textbooks and other media. We are proud to be featured in the Renzulli Learning System, an educational enrichment tool for educators used in classrooms around the world. (The Renzulli Learning System was developed by researchers at the University of Connecticut’s Neag Center for Gifted Education and Talent Development.) In addition, we are a favorite online educational destination for many homeschoolers and students and teachers from gifted and talented programs.


The award-winning, kid-created Amazing Kids! Online Magazine is one of Amazing Kids!’ many educational programs featured on their website. The online publication is known for featuring quality, creative, thoughtful and often thought-provoking written and artistic work written and edited by kids and teens. As a result, the Amazing Kids! website was recently recognized as one of the Top 24 “Great Web Sites for Kids” for 2010 by the American Library Association (ALA) specifically in the content area of “writing by kids.”


Through the Launch My Dream! initiative, a growing national movement aimed at helping our kids better prepare for their future by starting now. Amazing Kids! is working with others who are concerned for and care deeply about the future of our kids, especially given the current tough economic climate, including other non-profits, individuals, schools, businesses, corporations, as well as government partners. We are working with our partners to establish collaborative “Dream Teams” in our communities across the United States.These Dream Teams are helping local kids, one kid or one group of kids, and one community at a time, to create a plan and get access to the resources they’ll need to launch their dreams for their amazing future.


The inspiring “Amazing Kids! of the Month” stories feature the amazing accomplishments of everyday kids in our communities. You can find 12 years’ of these stories in our archives at: http://amazing-kids.org/kids.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?
The Amazing Kids! PenPals Program is a traditional, letter writing pen pal program, available to all children ages 5-17. The cost is $10 per child or student. Teachers and groups of 15 or more receive a 50% discount.

Why is there a fee?
We are a small, all-volunteer non-profit organization, and the fees help cover our cost of running the program.

How did the Amazing Kids! PenPals begin?
The Amazing Kids! PenPals program began as a way of reaching out to the children affected by the devastating hurricanes of 2005. Our hope was that by matching young hurricane survivors with a new pen pal (“buddy”), we could help them in their recovery from the trauma many experienced due to the hurricanes.
The program is now available to all children, worldwide. We continue to welcome teachers, youth groups or agencies who work with hurricane survivors or survivors of any trauma to register their students as well.

How does it work?
Parents, teachers, agency directors, etc. sign up their students using the appropriate links below. Amazing Kids! will match students of the same gender and age with other students who may share similar interests and hobbies, based on the information provided on the registration form.

I’ve completed all three forms and made my payment. What happens next?
Someone from Amazing Kids! will contact you once a match has been found. You will be asked to call the other parent, teacher or group leader of the pen pal Amazing Kids! has selected for your child or student. If both adults agree that the pen pal match is a good one, then the students may begin writing to each other. If the match is determined not to be a good one, Amazing Kids! will try and find an alternative match.

Thanks for being a Pal™!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?
The Amazing Kids! PenPals Program is a traditional, letter writing pen pal program, available to all children ages 5-17. The cost is $10 per child or student. Teachers and groups of 15 or more receive a 50% discount.

Why is there a fee?
We are a small, all-volunteer non-profit organization, and the fees help cover our cost of running the program.

How did the Amazing Kids! PenPals begin?
The Amazing Kids! PenPals program began as a way of reaching out to the children affected by the devastating hurricanes of 2005. Our hope was that by matching young hurricane survivors with a new pen pal (“buddy”), we could help them in their recovery from the trauma many experienced due to the hurricanes.
The program is now available to all children, worldwide. We continue to welcome teachers, youth groups or agencies who work with hurricane survivors or survivors of any trauma to register their students as well.

How does it work?
Parents, teachers, agency directors, etc. sign up their students using the appropriate links below. Amazing Kids! will match students of the same gender and age with other students who may share similar interests and hobbies, based on the information provided on the registration form.

I’ve completed all three forms and made my payment. What happens next?
Someone from Amazing Kids! will contact you once a match has been found. You will be asked to call the other parent, teacher or group leader of the pen pal Amazing Kids! has selected for your child or student. If both adults agree that the pen pal match is a good one, then the students may begin writing to each other. If the match is determined not to be a good one, Amazing Kids! will try and find an alternative match.

Thanks for being a Pal™!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?
The Amazing Kids! PenPals Program is a traditional, letter writing pen pal program, available to all children ages 5-17. The cost is $10 per child or student. Teachers and groups of 15 or more receive a 50% discount.

Why is there a fee?
We are a small, all-volunteer non-profit organization, and the fees help cover our cost of running the program.

How did the Amazing Kids! PenPals begin?
The Amazing Kids! PenPals program began as a way of reaching out to the children affected by the devastating hurricanes of 2005. Our hope was that by matching young hurricane survivors with a new pen pal (“buddy”), we could help them in their recovery from the trauma many experienced due to the hurricanes.
The program is now available to all children, worldwide. We continue to welcome teachers, youth groups or agencies who work with hurricane survivors or survivors of any trauma to register their students as well.

How does it work?
Parents, teachers, agency directors, etc. sign up their students using the appropriate links below. Amazing Kids! will match students of the same gender and age with other students who may share similar interests and hobbies, based on the information provided on the registration form.

I’ve completed all three forms and made my payment. What happens next?
Someone from Amazing Kids! will contact you once a match has been found. You will be asked to call the other parent, teacher or group leader of the pen pal Amazing Kids! has selected for your child or student. If both adults agree that the pen pal match is a good one, then the students may begin writing to each other. If the match is determined not to be a good one, Amazing Kids! will try and find an alternative match.

Thanks for being a Pal™!
