100 Reasons To Be Hopeful – A Project Hope Update

These days, it’s rare to get much in the mail other than bills or flyers.

I know when I receive a little package, letter or card of a personal nature it really brightens my day.

For this project, I am creating a simple postage-friendly talisman that I can mail out to people who want a little more hope in their lives or want to share some hope in the world.

I will send out one of these clay creations to a person that requests one and an additional 1-3 of them for the receiver to send out to one or a few of their contacts. In this way, together we can send out a little brightness and hope all over the world, bit by bit.

The first talismans are now created and we are in the process of setting up a site where people can leave hopeful messages to the recipients. It will also include a map, so we can see where in the world hope has been sent (only the city would be used as the location marker on the map).

This project is totally free to participate in.

I plan to put in $100 for postage costs to kick off the project, and may even leave a few of the talismans in various places.

You can subscribe to our newsletter to receive more information in January as to how you can participate in Project Hope and receive some hope in your mailbox or share hope with others.

Thank you for reading and joining us in bringing more hope to the world!


  1. Hi there. I tried to leave a comment at the post asking for messages of hope, but there is no comment box available. Just letting you know that no one can leave comments even though you asked for them.

  2. Very sweet concept. I also love the idea of ‘paying it forward’ in life, when we’re not so engrossed in looking back with regret or looking forward with trepidation…
