FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) — A young kid walked into North Fayette Elementary in Georgia on the first day of school with a new shirt, but this shirt had a important message on it.

Blake Rajahn wore a shirt his mother made him with a very special message on it.

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

Blake's mother told him that she would make any kind of shirt he wanted for the first day.

He thought about it 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?"

His mother stated, "Never underestimate your kid's heart for others!"
