“Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything, That’s how the light gets in” – Singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen
Amid concerns and restrictions due to COVID-19, the Cosanti Foundation in Paradise Valley is hosting a special “Ring for Hope” virtual event via Facebook Live and Instagram on Friday, April 24 at 5:55 pm. At this time, participants are invited to join the virtual event as longtime Cosanti Foundryman Jeff Hildebrand initiates the bell ringing ceremony, reveals some of Cosanti and the bells’ unique history as well as shares some inspirational words of hope.
As the sun sets, participants are encouraged to ring their Cosanti bronze or ceramic wind bells from the safety of their own homes in recognition of those who have lost their lives to the — or are currently suffering with — the virus as well as for first responders, healthcare workers, grocery and delivery services members and all who are doing what they can to stop the spread. The bell ringing event serves to inspire hope and instill connectivity amid social distancing requirements that leave many missing their families, friends and loved ones.
Cosanti bells are not required to participate; however, Cosanti is offering an exclusive 15 percent off discount on the bells especially for this event; guests may use code RINGHOPE15
