The mission of Ben’s Bells is to teach individuals and communities about the positive impacts of intentional kindness and to inspire people to practice kindness as a way of life.
As we navigate a changing world, the practice of intentional kindness is more important than ever. Kindness is an interpersonal skill; in order to make kindness a lifestyle choice, we first need to understand our social and emotional brains. Download our current calendar HERE.
What We Do
Ben’s Bells are colorful ceramic flowers hung in communities throughout the world as symbols of kindness for people to find and take home. Thousands of volunteers visit our studios and help us make bells each year. By the time each bell is hung, many hands have had a part in its journey, and it represents the efforts of an entire community coming together to make one person’s day a little kinder.
But that’s not all we do!
Ben’s Bells educates communities about the skills we need to make kindness part of our daily lives. Kindness is a skill set that can be learned, and a series of small actions practiced regularly makes a larger impact than a single random act. Our programs are designed to help us understand the human brain so we can develop our awareness and compassion – both for ourselves and others.
