The Ben's Bells Project is a 501c3 nonprofit community art project focusing on the creation of Ben's Bells- beautiful ceramic hanging works of art inspired by the spirit of Ben Mare Packard. Through the creation and distribution of Ben's Bells, diverse individuals are unified in a powerful network of mutual support. Each Bell is created by the hands of many, so that by the time one Bell is completed, a multitude of individuals has been involved in the process. Bell-making activities include sculpting and painting clay beads and centerpieces. Ben's Bells also offers innovative outreach programs for schools, workplaces, and organizations which serve to educate and insprie students, faculty, and staff to recognize the importance of kindness. These programs empower participants to create a culture of kindess in their communities and beyond.
