In the spirit of Halloween, brothers and co-owners of Blessed Inspirationals, Steve and Robert Zimberg, gave special treats to all the ghouls and goblins.
Each time the doorbell rang to their homes in Oak Park and Huntington Woods, and after the threatening dogs did their yelping, everyone got a custom, glow in the dark, zipper pull with a special message.
The message said “I’m Blessed” and came wrapped with a card for kids that included the following "instructions":
- Be proud of yourself!
- Think happy thoughts.
- Be thankful for your family.
- Speak good words.
- Be a good friend.
- Be kind to others.
“Many think the phrase is a religious thing, but they are very educational and promote self esteem," said Steve Zimberg. "Even with the rain, we gave out about 300 zipper pulls and a few 'I’m a cool kid' pencils."
Several years ago kids got a Glow in the Dark, kid-sized Wristband saying, “I’m a cool kid”
“Kids love our simple products because it makes them feel special. Parents love them because of their educational message," Robert Zimberg said. "Together, we are making a positive difference in the lives of our youth.”
