Charmers at work
A group of women in Sedona have been focused on a special approach to kindness for many years. The women have been making "Kindness" charms out of broken, recycled and surplus donated jewelry and dispersing them, not only around Sedona, but across the nation and world wide.
Each Charm had a tag that says "Take me home and spread kindness". To date the women have distributed over 8,000 charms to every state in the US and over 54 countries, in the hope that they are found by someone that needs to be reminded that they are loved.
This effort is carried out anonymously. Charms appear laying under a bench, hanging from a branch, draped over a rock or on some other object where they will eventually be found. The goal is simply to encourage acts of kindness, large and small, both in Sedona and around the world.
Our sincere hope is that your charm finds you and inspires you to spread kindness in many ways.
The original idea came from a woman we read about, who lost her son Ben. His mother, Jeannette Maré, began fashioning bells as a therapy at first and then as a tribute. Twice a year they are hung around Tucson, with a note inviting those who find them to take them and let them serve as a reminder to spread kindness. It was kindness, after all - simple, everyday acts of human kindness - that had helped Maré through the hardest days after Ben died. Read more: http://www.BensBells.org
