Nikki Rajahn I Will Be Your Friend T Shirt. I Will Be Your Friend First Day Of School Youth Kids T-Shirt.
The first week of school can be difficult for a lot of children, especially younger children or those new to a district, who are faced with the daunting prospect of having to make news friends. Developmentally, a child’s ability to socialize and build friendships is just as important as reading, writing, and arithmetic.
One Fayetteville, Georgia elementary student, who has experienced bullying, realizes the importance of having a good friend to offer you moral support through growing pains. So, Blake Rajahn, six, wanted to make sure everyone at North Fayette Elementary knew that he would be their friend.
In honor of Blake’s first day of school, his mother, Nikki, offered to make him a custom shirt.
“It could have anything — a basketball theme, football, etc. which are all his favorites,” Nikki shared on her business’s Facebook page. “He thought a while and said, ‘[Will] you please make me a shirt that says ‘I will be your friend’ for all the kids who need a friend to know that I am here for them.'”
Without hesitation, the mother-of-four got to work creating Blake’s orange T-shirt with green text that read, “I will be your friend.”
