Ben's Bells has Come to Newtown, CT

Ben's Bells has come to Newtown, CT!  On Wednesday, February 13th, Richelle and her friend, Frances went to Ben's Bells in Newtown to help out.  What they were going to do and they were going to help was unknown to them.  Frances had found one of Ben's Bells and was very excited about.  It was so much fun and both Richelle and Frances left Ben's Bells Newtown feeling great.  It was contageous - just being there. 

What is Bens Bells NewtownBen’s Bells Newtown is a chapter of the larger Ben’s Bells non-profit out of Tucson, Arizona. Bens Bells Newtown was created to help spread kindness and remind everyone to pass it on. The smallest act of kindness may make the biggest impact on a person’s day. You just never know. So be kind!!!

Bens' Bells Newtown will begin to give the community opportunities to help make bells, starting in February. With everyone’s help, Bens Bells Newtown will make bells to hang in the community for people to find. There are many steps to the bells, and by coming to a “bell making” you can help make it possible. Each bell has the possibility to be a work of art from 10 different volunteers.

Photos are of the clay beads that Richelle and Frances made and finished Ben's Bells (sorry photos are sideways - couldn't get them to rotate properly).
