‘I Will Be Your Friend’ shirts encourage kindness on the first day of school

A new trend is going viral across the country and it’s all thanks to a little boy named Blake who asked his mom for a very special shirt to wear on the first day of school.

Blake’s mom loves making custom T-shirts, so when she asked her son what shirt he would like for his first day of school, his answer surprised her. He wanted a shirt that said “I will be your friend.”

“I told him that as a back-to school-gift, I will make him any shirt he would like. It could have anything – a basketball theme, football, etc. which are all his favorites. 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?’” Never underestimate your kid’s heart for others!”

As soon as we saw this awesome shirt, we at Sweet Buffalo and Sweet Buffalo Rocks wanted to spread Blake’s mission so we sponsored 10 “I Will Be Your Friend” shirts for Western New York kids to wear on their first day of school. We received one last week and we love it!
