BearheART Contact Cards

Message to Educators,


Your students can send a positive message to Indigenous students in remote communities through The Art for Aid Project.

This downloadable template can be printed by you, filled out by your students, then mailed to Art for Aid. Students are invited to draw a picture or write a positive message to Indigenous students in remote schools. The cards are shipped to Art for Aid and we include them in the art supply boxes that are mailed out. Art provides a vehicle for communication, regardless of language.


The BearheART Contact Cards serve to create a communication bridge between peers from very different communities, but also to let Indigenous students know that people see them, are connecting to them and care about them. A positive bridge between youth is a bridge that can carry the weight of great positive changes in the future.

We recommend printing the template onto cover or card stock. Once completed, the cards can be mailed to Art for Aid. The pdf prints two cards front/two cards back, then you cut the page in half for two cards.

We recommend using cardstock for this. Contact us for a mailing address.
