"I Will Be Your Friend."
Written by Hannah Apr, 13, 2020
At some point in life, everyone experiences the feeling of being left out. However, at the beginning of this past school year, sweet 6-year-old Blake from Georgia wanted to help make sure none of his classmates ever had to feel this way. When Blake’s mom, who owns an apparel printing business, offered to make him any T-shirt he wanted for the first day of school, she expected him to say one of his favorite sports like football or basketball. Instead, Blake asked his mom for a shirt that simply said “I will be your friend.”
Blake’s mom was so touched by her son’s kindness, she shared the post with her friends on Facebook, where it received over 10,000 likes. Soon she was inspired to start selling more “I will be your friend” shirts and donate part of the proceeds to a local non-profit. Now, Blake’s kindness is making an even bigger impact on his community.
Blake’s compassion has certainly not gone unnoticed and we can’t wait to see all the wonderful things he accomplishes in his life with such a caring spirit. Keep up the amazing work Blake!
