Changing The World One Friend At A Time!

Meet Lance Justice Bradford! Read about his mission to change the world one friend at a time. Lance has created a heart felt and meaningful Friendship Shirt with a Friendship Pledge to share with you.

Your children, children you know, and you can all give the gift of friendship all year long! You can give the gift of friendship by taking the Friendship Pledge (included) and wearing or giving a Friendship Shirt. The shirts are worn as a reminder and pledge that being kind spreads love and joy to those you gift with Friendship Shirts.

Made by a kid – for kids – and all kids at heart! Lance (age 5) created the idea early one morning to paint his white t-shirt for his friend, Isabella. That morning, Lance said “Mommy, I’d like to paint friendship shirts.”

So, I asked, “What’s a friendship shirt, Lance?” I thought he’d heard somewhere about the latest and greatest shirts to wear. Lance replied, “It’s a shirt I paint for my friend and one for me to show my friend that she’s nice to me.” He then said, “I’d also like to paint a shirt for kids that have been unkind to me so they can feel what it’s like to be friendly and nice.”

Lance had been struggling with being bullied at school and was working very hard in trying to overcome his fears of making new friends. He was also learning skills to be brave and strong when someone hurts him.

Lance began painting his first Friendship Shirt the morning of August 25th, 2018. The pictures you see here are of him healing by being artistic and creating something that would spread joy one friend at a time.

Russ (Lance’s dad) and I, Cannetta, (Lance’s mom) asked Lance, “What is friendship?” He replied:

Stand up for you and others.
Honest and a great friend.

The Friendship Pledge was born.

Friendship Pledge directions:

When giving a Friendship Shirt to someone, please repeat the Friendship Pledge to them. After you make your Friendship Pledge, wear your shirt(s) proudly as a reminder that you are a kind and great friend.

I pledge to be kind to you and others.
I pledge to stand up for you and others.
I pledge to be honest and a great friend to you and others.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know our son and his heart.

5% of all proceeds will be donated to Lance’s school for their anti-bullying program.
