I was going through some notes this past weekend and I came across a very special message dated last summer from one of our very special radio guests, Mary Kay Hoal.
In this FaceBook message I had a nice little surprise (see below) that brightened my day… but of course there is more to the story and the relationship we have been able to cultivate with Mary Kay over the past few years.
It has been really exciting watching the growth and level of experience that Mary Kay has developed and pursued on behalf of children everywhere!!
Recently Mary Kay has been featured in multiple media arenas and has some National Exposure as well that will make changes for all parents and advocates like Dave and Bill and the many others who have joined us on CHWR
I don’t think she will mind if I share this with you all, because we are on the same team, fighting for the same cause… and that is Keeping Our Children Safe!
Mary Kay’s message…
First of all, thanks for liking the story we shared about the incident with one of our members. The larger we’re growing, the more mistakes we’re seeing kids making in the site. I just wanted to say hi and thank you, and give you an update on what’s been going on in the site.
I know you won’t be surprised, Bill, that we have people purposefully lying and ignoring our terms of service. For example, we’ve had two adults join and try to friend kids in the site. Thankfully our technology and human oversight caught it, but it just underscores what you and I know already: that parents need to be involved and talking to their kids about online safety.
I see all of your advocacy for Yoursphere and what we’re doing, so I just wanted to say thank you so much for your continued support. This is a tough job that we have, changing things for kids and doing what’s right by kids.
Take care, Bill.
Best, Mary Kay
and my response, back to Mary Kay…
You are so welcome, you and your team do such a wonderful job of creating and maintaining an awesome social website!
My kids truly love your site!
Sorry to hear that you are being attacked, but when you become a highly visited site that happens, it happened on one of our sites a couple of years ago… and it took us months to get it back up and running! Apparently you have more than hit the Big Time!
Keep fighting the good fight, and if there is ever anything we can do to help, please let me know.
Mary Kay’s website is one of our TOP Three choices for parents who want the most fun, protection and safety for their children, while online!
Listen below to her past #CHWR interviews and you will understand why we consider Mary Kay one of our most favorites, and also because she is one of the leading children advocates here in the USA and world-wide!
