After Bouncing From One Shelter To Another, This 10-Year-Old Uses His Allowance To Help Homeless Kids

Truly inspirational.

Meet Xavier Elliott.


The 10-year-old from Phoenix, Arizona had it pretty tough. His family ended up homeless after Xavier's dad experienced post-traumatic stress disorder upon returning from serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq, Huffington post reports. As Stephanie Elliott, Xavier's mom, explained in an interview with USA today, they bounced from one shelter to another, six different ones in all.

Now that his family is back on their feet, this little kid is changing the world. One outfit at a time.

"We have so much stuff," he told USA Today. "I think we should give stuff for homeless kids."

Many children would spend their allowance on popsicles or soda, but not Xavier. 

This little designer decided to spend his own allowance to buy fabrics and, with his mom's help, make clothes for kids in need.

"I think the idea came to him from everything we have endured and wanting to make a difference for other people," Xavier's mom said in an interview.

After she started sharing her son's story on social media, donations started coming in.

"He may become a designer," Xavier's mom said. "That would be awesome."

Well, to be completely honest, he looks like one bada** humanitarian designer already. Way to make a difference!

If you're interested in helping Xavier help others make sure to follow the official page of the cause on Facebook. Any donations of fabrics, needles, threads or even a sewing machine are welcome.
