Q. What is eBlessings.us?
A. eBlessings.us is a website designed to
proactively assist you in blessing someone else – whether through an
International Children’s Pen Pals Program -- by reading spiritually enlightening
books -- or by exchanging goods and services with somebody else. The idea is
simple. Each one blesses another!
Q. I want to start an International Children’s Pen Pals
Program in my community. How do I do it?
Just send us a note by clicking the
button and we’ll help you get started. We’ll send you a free information packet.
Q. How do I get Pen Pals names?
A. When you join the International Pen Pal Program,
eBlessings will provide names of students in Africa who would like to be Pen
Pals. We will administer the receipt and dissemination of letters to ensure each
child receives a letter each time letters are exchanged. No child will drop off
the list unless you tell us.
Q. Can I choose the country of my Pen Pals?
A. eBlessings has Pen Pals in Rwanda at this time.
We will be expanding into other African countries soon and into other continents
in the future.
Q. How do I introduce a Pen Pals
Program in my community?
A. When you are ready to start, eBlessings will
provide you a teaching packet which provides age appropriate information about
the country of your Pen Pals and the daily life of your Pen Pals. We do all the
research for you and provide you easy to use teaching materials. All you need to
supply is enthusiasm!
Q. Will the letters be in English?
A. Yes. Some letters may be written in other
languages, but all will come with English translation. Your students will enjoy
reading other languages and may learn a few new words themselves.
Q. Is there a fee?
A. Yes. We too must pay to operate this program. Fees are based on the number of letter exchanges per year and the country in
which your Pen Pals reside. We send all of our letter packets via FedEx
International. This ensures your precious letters reach the Pen Pals and the
destination can be tracked on line. (We will send you the tracking number – it’s
fun to track the route!) We do all that we can to keep our fees as low as
possible to make it easier for everyone to participate. All teaching packet
materials are $29.95 with free periodic updates.
Q. What about safety?
A. eBlessings is very much aware of safety issues,
particularly with children. This is why we never release any personal
information about any Pen Pals, and require that a responsible adult read the
letters to ensure no personal information such as home address is included. All
letters are mailed and received from one location through eBlessings. Your
students will not be provided an address for their Pen Pals so that no “one off”
letter exchange occurs. This keeps everybody safe.
Q. I have more questions. Is there a number I can call?
Not at this time. You may contact eBlessings by
button, or you may mail questions to: P.O. Box 601,
Stone Mountain, GA 30086. Feel free to include your telephone number if you
would like us to call you directly.
