Bottles of Hope

We will be making Bottles of Hope this month. We are planning to create masculine themed bottles this time. Tom will be taking them to The Oklahoma Proton Center for patients being treated for prostate cancer.

There is no supply list this month as we will all be using our own ideas. So bring what you need to create a unique Bottle of Hope. If you need bottles, Tom will have some available. He has made many and will be able to provide guidance if you have never made a BOH. 

What are Bottles of Hope? “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”  Visit the Bottles of Hope website for more information and some inspiration!
