Art Trading Card Drive for Haiti

Art trading cards are little works of art that measure 2.5” x 3.5” in size. In July 2013, I’ll be traveling to Haiti again with Project HOPE Art, and would love to deliver as many of these cards as possible to children who have so much less than the rest of the world.  If you would like to take part in this drive, and send a message of good will, please follow the project requests below.

• Use any type paper that you like, but it must measure 2.5” x 3.5”.
• Create art on the front of the card that describes what your life is like. For example, I live in an apartment in CA, so I drew buildings with a palm tree out front. Add your city and state (or country) below.
• Add a message on the back and sign it with a first name only.
• Placing each card in a plastic penny sleeve would be great, but not necessary.
• Mail the cards to: Kathy Barbro, 12840 Moorpark Street #307, Studio City, CA by July 1st, 2013.

Please note that traveling to Haiti with extra luggage can get quite expensive, so donations would be very much appreciated. Visit to make a tax deductible donation. For further information, email To download a print friendly flyer, click HERE. Thank you everyone!

What a great idea! I plan to share this with my colleagues too. Thank you for all the wonderful projects you post here. I use them often and my fifth graders enjoy them so much. they have art every day for one quarter with a specialist, which is awesome. The rest of the year, I try to keep art in their lives. Thanks again!
