When Barnett Helzberg Jr. proposed to Shirley Bush in 1967, he thought that the love he sparked should be shared. He felt that everyone should be able to feel the same kind of love. This event is what sparked the idea of the “I Am Loved” pins that Helzberg until this day provides for free. You can pick up these pins at your nearest Helzberg location and give them to your loved ones. I will share my own “Why I am Loved” story today, and also tell you how you have the chance to win a $250 gift card by sharing your story.
Love can be defined in many ways. To me, love can be family, friends, a significant other, or simply just finding joy in the small things. But, love can be found in different forms. Since moving away from my home country at 18, I’ve had my ups and downs. The hardest part was finding a place to belong in a city as big as Los Angeles.
I have finally found a place where I feel loved by the people I surround myself with. They fil me with happiness, joy, excitement, and passion. They support me for everything I do, and I support them. There is nothing better than being surrounded by people who will do anything for you, no matter what. I am loved because I have a family. And family is the most important thing. Even though I am across the globe from my biological family, I have found and created my own Los Angeles family with my friends.
