Ben’s Bells is a project based in Tucson, Arizona, whose primary goal is to spread kindness.
The tragedy that started Ben’s Bells was the death of 3 year old Ben. After Ben’s death, his family found that little acts of kindness were what brought them through their tragedy. They started making bells and hanging them around Tucson with a written note to take the bell home and pass on the kindness. "Ben’s Bells symbolize kindness and its power in healing."
Ben’s Bells mission is "…to inspire, educate and motivate each other to realize the impact of intentional kindness and to empower individuals to act according to that awareness, thereby changing our world."
A little kindness goes a long way.

I heard the interview on NPR about Tucson and the benefit of Ben’s Bells. I am sorry to learn about the young Ben’s passing and about the tragic recent shooting. I pray peace for the people in Tucson. Keep up this interesting good work. Bless all involved. Cindi
