A formerly homeless young man has taken to his mother’s sewing machine to design special pieces for those who are still struggling.

Inspiration first struck as Xavier Elliott, 10, watched his mother, who runs a veteran support group, sew a purse.

“I think the idea came to him from everything we have endured and wanting to make a difference for other people,” Stephanie Elliott told the Huffington Post.Ryan-Czech-Jerylyn-hug-WTFX-video

Xavier, who previously spent some time in a homeless shelter with his family, started out by using his own allowance to foot the cost, and has since received a number of monetary and material donations—along with several offers of new sewing machines—after his story was broadcast by local Phoenix television stations.

According to the Elliott Family Charity Facebook page, he is being treated to a fashion camp where he can learn how to design clothing from professionals, and may even get an invitation to appear on the Ellen Degeneres show.

In addition to clothing, Xavier wants to make tote bags so homeless kids have a place to put their clothing.
