I had just started out on my run when I found a Ben's Bells hanging from a sign at the entrance to the park. I stopped to read the note attached to the bells and decided if the bells were still there after my run, then it was truly meant to be. So when it came time to exit, and the bells were still there, I brought them home to continue to share power of kindness.

I work in the ER up in Flagstaff, AZ, and came out to my car after a long shift to a "BensBell" hanging from the tree in front of my car. At first I couldn't decide if I should take it... but alas, after reading the note over a few times, decided this was meant for me at this time. It made my night, as it had been a long, hard day. I was so thankful for the reminder of what is important and why I do what I do. I'm hanging on to it for now - at least for a week or two - but plan to pass it on when the time seems right - anonymously of course. Thank you for your wonderful, kind, courageous efforts. Much love.

Greensboro's Center City Park hosted a New Year's Day Kindness Meditation. It was so rewarding to see 2 people find Ben's Bells at the event. One woman was so excited and she gave her bell to the yoga instructor who led the meditation. The other woman spent some time trying to decide if she should take the bell. She read the tag several times. Then she smiled and took the bell. What a great way to "ring" in the new year. Kindness Matters!
