The Girl Effect Club has hung bells around the school. These bells are calledBen’s Bells and the mission of Ben’s Bells is to inspire, educate, and motivate people to realize the impact of intentional kindness, and to empower individuals to act according to that awareness.  Please take a bell if you find one and read the note. We hope it inspires you to perform an act of kindness. We encourage you to then keep the bell, pass it on to someone else, or hang is somewhere different for someone else to find. If you would like to be a part of the girl effect club, we meet on Thursdays after school in room 204.
