"ART WITH HEART: A Kid to Kid Campaign" is undertaken by CBS5 anchor Dana King and Nadia Tarzi founder of the San Rafael based Association for the Protection of Afghan Archaeology, a non-profit with 501c3 status focused on cultural preservation.

San Francisco Bay Area schools children are invited and encouraged to participate in a drawing competition based on educational, grade and age appropriate slide presentations brought to their schools and depicting beautiful archaeological sites, statues, objects and monuments as well as breathtaking landscapes of Afghanistan.

The San Francisco Bay Area 12 winners whose drawings will be included in our "2012 ART WITH HEART" calendar will learn about the heritage of Afghanistan and also learn about their own, through the prizes they will receive: local Museum guided visits, local historical landmarks visits, a lunch at their local Afghan restaurant with their teacher and the opportunity to meet with the Mayor of their town to give him or her a "2012 ART WITH HEART" calendar.
