Be Kind Illinios Is a volunteer group from the University of Illinois Department of Special Education and the greater Champaign/Urbana community committed to supporting the mission of the Ben's Bells Project. The mission of Ben's Bells is to inspire, educate, and motivate each other to realize the impact of intentional kindness and to empower individuals to act according to that awareness, thereby changing our world.

The Ben's Bells Project is a non-profit community art project focused on the creation of Ben's Bells - beautiful ceramic hanging works of art inspired by the spirit of Ben Mare' Packard. Learn more about Ben's story at or like our facebook page at

Ben's Bells are not for sale. Every year, hundreds of bells are hung randomly in several communities throughout the country for people to find and take home as a reminder to pass on the kindness. Be Kind Illinois volunteers are busy creating Ben's Bells for our second distribution in Champaign County.
