Ben's Bells in the news

Just wanted to pass along some links of how Ben's Bells is expanding. As you know, they are based in Tucson, where there were some tragic events last weekend.

This week, Ben's Bells did their largest distribution so far in the Tucson area, over 1,000 bells.

Please make sure to tune into NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams TONIGHT (Friday 1.14.11). Ben's Bells will be featured on national news during their "Making a Difference" segment!! If you missed it, the segment is here.

And an article on KVOA and also in the Arizona Star and the New York Times.

This is what we'll be doing in May! Contact us to get involved!

Distribution Date!

Thanks to the Ben's Bells team we have a distribution date for the very first Ben's Bells in Colorado!

The weekend of May 14, 2011!

Details will come later.

Also, we have a tentative spot to make Ben's Bells locally, at Bear Creek High School in Lakewood - as their art department has the equipment we need. Now we just have to raise money for supplies to get started. And, maybe we have to get some help with kiln stuff.

Fundraising is going well, we have secured a $1000 grant from CGI for the Colorado Distribution. Now we'll work on the rest!
