How do I join?
We are so happy that you have decided to consider joining Little People of the World as a place to call home. It is really easy to join, and it's also free. Our memberships will never cost you a dime ever. Why take money from you for being you? To get started you simply need to go to our Members Application area. Fill out the form, and then submit.
Do I have to fill out an application to be a member?
Yes. We keep a record of each member for very good reasons. Members are the only ones that can have access to certain upcoming features, programs and much more.
Can my family fill out an application to be a member not in the household?
No. The only members we allow are those within a household or as an individual person with short stature under 4'11.
Do I have to be a “dwarf” in order to qualify for membership?
No. We are called Little People of the World for a reason. So many people even with a non-diagnosis that are under the height 4'11” also have many difficulties, but may not include all the medical issues that come with having dwarfism. There are many different types of short stature medical issues and we do not discriminate against that.
Is my information kept confidential?
Yes. Your information that you complete on any program application, membership forms or anything else including volunteer time is kept confidential. Our policy is very strict in the terms that we keep everyone as safe as possible. Our security system including with our 1and1 is top notch. No one will ever be allowed, even on request to have your information.
Why do we use Facebook to verify?
We use Facebook as a verification method with profiles to verify you are who you say you are. In some cases we do run into those that are “fake profiles”, or just made to try and see what they can do. Again, we ensure that all our members are safe and real before we allow them to join. From time to time we do investigate up to date on the profiles. However Facebook is not the only method we use. Our form you fill out during the membership application is extensive for a reason. So if there are any fakes more than likely they won't be able to fill it out correctly, or they will not complete it and try and submit. We do this for your safety.
Are there other ways to communicate with LP's?
Yes. We have a page called the Little Peoples Chat Rooms that you can go to and find the room you are looking for. You will have to create a profile in order to use the services we have provided. The chat rooms are free and we hope you will enjoy them. We do monitor them and have moderators to ensure a pleasant time while you are there.
What is the Youtube & Little People area?
The Little People Youtube area is amazing! Here Little People from all over the world can sign up as a member and also have their Youtube page placed on the website in that area. This allows to show all sorts of creative and amazing things you can learn from other little people from all over the world. When you sign up for a membership you can actually input your Youtube information and after we review it and deem it worthy (kid friendly and wholesome), we will then get your Youtube channel placed on the site.
Do we get paid for working with Little People of the World?
At this current point in time we are strictly a volunteer based program with everything we do together. In the later future we will have substantial pay programs for those who work a certain amount over time. We do encourage no more than 10 hours a week in working as a volunteer because we all do have outside lives as well.
Can I work with Little People of the World but be in another organization in the United States?
No. It is a conflict of interest with the programs and confidential information that we have to keep things secure we do not allow anyone that is part of any other organization inside the United States to work with us. This includes Canada or any other person whom has a membership with another company inside the United States. We do a background check prior before acceptance of your application.
How do I get my organization to be a partner of Little People of the World?
On the website you will go to the Affiliate Application area and fill out the form needed. You must be the owner of the organization or current leader of the organization in order to apply.
Can I represent my country for Little People of the World as an Ambassador if I'm not in a organization?
Yes. If you do not belong to a current organization or have been removed, or you left on your own terms for whatever reason you can apply to become an International Ambassador under the Career Area. Once you are approved you will then be the lead for your country under Little People of the World Organization.
As an Ambassador of my country can I recruit members?
Absolutely! Any members that you can obtain to becoming part of Little People of the World is a blessing and making the family even bigger. They will have to apply as a member to make it count and then they will be under your group with Little People of the World for _________ country.
What happens if I get banned from LPOTW?
If you are banned from Little People of the World and depending on the issue you can be banned for either a short term of 3 months and or up to 2 years based on the situation. It is not our goal nor do we wish for this to even have happen, but from time to time like any other company it does occur and we hate to even think of having to do this in the first place. We do not like drama and will not condone drama of any kind.
How do I report an issue?
If you feel that there is an issue that needs to be looked at no matter the reason you can simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible and we will investigate it right away. Keep in mind this can take up to 3-5 business days to conduct a full investigation and get back to you. We do try to make it no more than 72 hours but the 3-5 days is to ensure we have gone over everything we can.
Is being a Facebook group member considered a membership?

How do you feel about the word midget?
This company (Little People of the World Organization), ignores the word midget,.. in the sense that we have to teach our children to ignore it vs. letting it get to us. If we allow the ignorance of a person to abuse the word on us, then we are never going to get to the root of the real issues. The word "midget" is used more than ever in the entertainment world (which will never end), no matter how you protest it, no matter who you write a letter to it will never go away. It's been around for hundreds of years.
What the word can do is only defined by what you allow it to do and be to you. Teaching your child to hate when someone says it or get angry, only causes psychological issues later on of the child becoming more self aware, and less confident. We need to teach out children that the word "midget" is not the end of the world, or of their lives when someone calls them this. We need to educate our children to have pride in themselves while we also educate those around us that to some it can be very offensive while to others it's just a word.
The idea that we allow something to affect us like it has for so long must come to an end. Some use it to work with to place food on their families tables, keeping roofs over their childrens heads, and more (Do we really need to kill a person providing for their family or themselves?). MIdget is just a word used in so many ways now and it's not something important that we should be focused on as the biggest issue. However, if you want to know a person whom is short and has -dwarfism- of some type then get to know them as who they are not by what you don't know and use a word. Each person has a name, has a unique look about them no matter if they are tall, short, fat, black, white, brown, so on so forth. We need to embrace the fact that life is so much more important on than to focus on a word.
If you allow the word to affect you, then you are weak and never had the chace to be shown how to be proud of yourself. We teach kids who are bullied to ignore them, don't worry about it. We need to do the same here but educate them instead of turning a blind eye on someone who clearly shows ignorance. So midget [as it has just been typed] is just a word that you just read and thats as far as it should and can go. Up to you! However here at Little People of the World we do not protest, yell, scream, or get mean when someone uses the word we just teach and try and help others get to know who we are individually. Love Yourselves #BeYou.
