Ben’s Bells

If you don’t know the story of Ben’s Bells you should click here.

I have wanted a Ben’s Bell since I found out about them.

Twice a year volunteers hang these signature bells randomly around Tucson for passersby to find and keep. They are in memory of a little boy name Ben (I have a soft spot for Bens) and serve as a reminder that we should be kind just for the sake of it.

I found one.  Not where I imagined I would, but at Goodwill. Though I have no idea why anyone would want to get rid of their bell, I was happy to snatch it up.  I may have even gasped, but that could also be because I saw it as I was tripping into the display of windchimes where it was buried.

Now it hangs happily on our back porch.

I love it.  I love it.  I love it.

    I love the Ben’s Bell store in Tucson on Broadway. I’ve bought lots of KINDNESS COINS there and other goodies too. I’m dying to find a Ben’s Bell. Maybe one day…..hopefully.
