'I will be your friend:' Boy's shirt brightens up first day of school


FAYETTE COUNTY, Ga. (WTHR) — This week was the first day of school for many students including elementary school student Blake Rajahn.

And like most kids, Blake wore new clothes on his first day. But it wasn't the typical button-down shirt or sports gear; instead, he wore a shirt his mom made him.

The shirt is orange with green words that say, "I will be your friend."

Blake's mother, Nikki, owns a personalization business and told him she'd make him a new shirt for his first day, 11Alive reported.

According to her, Blake has experienced bullying at school before and wanted to make sure that other kids knew he's there for them.

"I want to make sure that kids that are are bullied know they have a friend already." he told his mom.

"Never underestimate your kid's heart for others! I love my sweet Blake!" Nikki wrote on Facebook.
