I'm a big supporter of purchasing products Made in the USA whenever possible. So when I heard about this bell manufacturer (Bevin Bell) that was the victim of a devastating fire that burned everything to the ground. This factory was established in 1836 and actually made the bell that rings at the end of "It's a Wonderful Life." ("Everytime a bell rings, an angel gets its wings!)
Please check out their website...it offers more insight in to their background and gives you a link to donate $12 and receive an actual bell that survived the fire! You're donating to help this company keep its employees jobs secure.
They also make the bells for the Salvation Army!
