Xavier Elliot, 10 years old, used to be homeless and spend a lot of time in different homeless shelters with his family. After he and his family found a place to live, Xavier started saving up his allowance to make clothes for kids who can’t afford them. Xavier got inspired by his mom, who runs a veteran support group, when he saw her sewing a purse.
His mom said she thinks the idea came to him from everything they have endured and wanting to make a difference for other people. Xavier doesn’t just want to make clothing but also wants to make tote bags for homeless kids, so they have something to keep their clothes in.
