Art Cards for a Cause
Art Cards for a Cause was created when we realized that young people and educators needed financial support to attend programs and training. We recently expended to support the Fairy Creek initiative to defend Old Growth Trees.
Take a look at how you can participate in the movement.
When you buy your Art Cards
You are sponsoring a child in Wild Craft Play, Igniting the flame for an Earth Guide and you are helping to protect the Old Growth Trees.
To contribute to the Don of Coombeck subsidy fund that supports families to attend Wildly Crafted Play, we are setting things up to help you sell art cards.

This book was created by founder Jamie Black and a child named Carmanah when she was 11 years old, nearly 9 years ago. Wild Craft Play The Game, has brought wild wonderment to hundreds of children, youth and adults since 2008. It has been played with groups of 16 or more children, ages 8 and up, designed for at least 8 weeks of engagement or more.
Initially this program was created with children, for children, to re-connect them with the Earth, now it is a multi-disciplinary experience that teaches about anti-bullying, as well as reaches all of the BC core competencies and is a model designed to meet some of the BC curriculum, namely, Grades 3, 4 and 5; physical and health education, math, financial literacy, science, socials, english, drama, environmental education, art and music. For anyone who facilitates the game, one of the core intentions is to help children play more gently on the Earth, making decisions for the Earth, and for our future.
When this book is published, it will become an educational resource to any adult who works with groups of children ages 8 and up. Join the movement. Become a Wild Craft Play Facilitator.
