  4. Dear Native Pakistan,
    We are reaching out to you with a cause in hand.
    We represent a portal for child learning and development. Our media is showing a lot of negative and violent news related to Pakistan lately which adversely affects a child’s psyche.
    Our portal is all about positive mental development of children, hence we have nursery rhymes, stories, fun learning games and videos, mom forum and parenting blog on our platform. We need your support to reach out as many mothers in Pakistan as we possibly can so that they may use positive, healthy content for their children rather making them watch news channel with them.
    We will really appreciate if you can support us in this cause and can either tweet or post a comment on Facebook asking others to start using or create a small post for the well being of their children’s mental health. This will take only 2 minutes of your time but will contribute in a great manner for the development of Pakistan Future.
    Best Wishes,
