I bought these little glass bottles at Micheals for less than $5. I placed sand in them from the beach including some tiny shells. However, I didn't like the note I had placed in it. I went to New Orleans and there was a woman who was dressed in a colonial dress and spray painted bronze. Every time you would place money in her basket she would slowly move and take a message out of her basket and hand it to you. It was absolutely beautiful, and reminded me of a talented Artist/Singer/Musician named Amanda Palmer. The message she handed me said At the end of the day we can endure much more than we think we can. I placed that message in the bottle and left it on a table in a bar that I frequent. Later that weekend I cheated and asked the bartender if she noticed if anyone had picked up a glass bottle. She said You did that?! Someone placed in on the bar, and I opened it. I was having a terrible night with the patrons in the bar, and this helped me get through the night. I am going to purchase more bottles and placed them in various places throughout the city. The Universe will see to it that whoever needs the message will find it.

Sent a message in a bottle off the end of Saltburn pier with my class 4RB during my School Direct placement at Abingdon Primary School.
I put the message in the bottle and sealed it up back last March...I have no idea what it said any more or if I included any contact information, but I threw it as hard as I could off the end of a peer and hope it ends up some where exotic.
This was fun. My friends and I were on the Oregon Coast. I attempted to swim out into the waves and toss my bottle with note inside. It beat me back to shore. We went to sea in a chartered boat. I wasn't sure what the captain would think, so I tried to sneakily drop the bottle over the side. The spray from the boat tossed the bottle back onto the deck. Then, I realized that I would just have to throw it. Which I did. It made us all laugh for quite awhile. Here is the message I put in the bottle.

A Crazed Girl by William Butler Yeats

That crazed girl improvising her music.

Her poetry, dancing upon the shore,

Her soul in division from itself

Climbing, falling She knew not where,

Hiding amid the cargo of a steamship,

Her knee-cap broken, that girl I declare

A beautiful lofty thing, or a thing

Heroically lost, heroically found.

No matter what disaster occurred

She stood in desperate music wound,

Wound, wound, and she made in her triumph

Where the bales and the baskets lay

No common intelligible sound

But sang, 'O sea-starved, hungry sea.'

Wrote the letter and sealed the bottle - I intend to send the message while Michelle is in town.
Bought and prepared the bottle...just have to write the note and "send" it.
I look forward to send a message in a bottle in summer 2013 at falckenstein beach/germany.
take a picture, get copy of message
I thing a suitably adorned plastic bottle might be suitable in this day and age. I might (illegally) lob it out of the aeroplane into the North Sea. No idea what to say in it yet (although a reference to the Day Zero Project and my email address will definitely be in there).
Accomplished on August 14, 2011 at Cribbon's Point Beach.
8/5/11 Cast a bottle out into the big ol' blue from St. Andrews pier with Maria and Chloe.
