About 11% of the adult homeless population are veterans.
Roughly 45% of all homeless veterans are African American or Hispanic, despite only accounting for 10.4% and 3.4% of the U.S. veteran population, respectively.
Tyler Stallings was only 4 years old when he decided to help homeless veterans.
"Doing something special for veterans began after I started asking my mom why some veterans are homeless," Tyler said on his GoFundMe page. "After talking to my mom, I really wanted to help build homes for veterans but together we decided on a more realistic goal.
We came up with an idea to make hygiene and grooming kits with thank you cards to give to veterans in need. I call them Hero Bags!"
During winter, a hero bag could be packed with a hat, gloves, blanket, lip balm, a sweater, toothbrushes and toothpaste, soap and more.
In the four years Tyler has been helping veterans, he has donated close to 3,000 hero bags, his mother Andrea Blackstone told CNN on Sunday.
He has helped many veterans and has raised more than $50,000 over the past four years.
What an amazing way to help homeless veterans. What are your thoughts?
