Encouragement Cards

Welcome to Our “Encouragements Message” Site


Please join our efforts to create and share “little encouragements message” globally. These are brief messages of support, courage, and love, from local people to global victims, given to the Institute for International Studies in Education (IISE), located in the School of Education at the University of Pittsburgh.

We began by trying to reach those in isolation in Wuhan. As the coronavirus spread globally, so did our audience, as there are many people in many countries who are experiencing the pain of social isolation created by the coronavirus. 

The project is simple.

Read and enjoy encouragement cards below. Create and share us your own encouragement card

Please visit our hosting page to view the cards composed by people around the world to support one another. Share your own original message, in whichever language or pictures you wish to use, at: encouragements@pitt.edu. IISE is simply the host and does not control the content of messages. 

Thanks so much
