  2. Hi Yashika,

    I came across your blog, Virtual Kidspace through IndiBlogger and was impressed with the quality of content.

    I am writing to you because we recently started a youtube channel to showcase free kids educational content. You can see the channel at http://www.youtube.com/kidsvideoshow

    Since our channel is putting up content for kids, we thought it might be of interest to your blog to showcase it in some way. It will go a long way in helping us create more interesting content for children which can be uploaded for free viewing on youtube and our website. As a small gesture we can also promote your blog on our website.

    We look forward to hearing from you as to whether you will be willing to showcase our YouTube channel on your blog.

    Regards,
    Vikas
