Bottles of Hope are small glass bottles covered with polymer clay and given to cancer patients. They symbolize a wish and a hope for health
This project was started in 1999 by a Rhode Island cancer survivor and has spread internationally. Bottles are made by artists, students, survivors, seniors and many more who volunteer their time and love.
This blog was created as a place to get information and to share your experiences with the Bottles of Hope project.
A word about the project: Our hope is that this project remains grass roots: a one to one sharing of art and love. The Bottles of Hope should NEVER be sold; they are to be given freely to cancer patients to bring hope to their lives.

This is a wonderful idea. I hadn’t heard of it before & I don’t know if anyone here in Australia is involved with such a comforting gesture. I do know that I will be taking up the cause. It’s little items like this that can mean so much to a person suffering from cancer. Where I live I know of a community group that assists cancer patients & their families so I’ll probably approach them & tell them of this wonderful project. I myself have just recently been diagnosed with a form of Leukaemia, & even though I’m only in the early stages, I can fully appreciate the thoughtfulness behind such a project. I’m so glad I came across your article on the net.
Glad you found this site!
There was a group in AU that made bottles of hope, but I can’t find their website right now. Was bottesofhope.com
Good luck spreading the word about the project, and thank you.
