Meet the 8-Year-Old Who Raised $100,000 to Help Vets and Their Families

“It’s been a lot but the reward is just seeing people get help.”

“Tyler Stallings was only 4-years-old when he first set out on a mission to help veterans experiencing homelessness. Since then, he’s raised an estimated $100,000 and thousands of supplies for veterans and military families in his community, according to his family. And Maryland officials have awarded him for his efforts.”

“Stallings, now 8, recently received the William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award for Baltimore County. The award, presented by Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot, recognizes someone in each county of Maryland who helps improve the lives of those in their community.”

“When Stallings was about 4, his mom, Andrea Blackstone, showed him a few YouTube videos about veterans and military service. Most of the videos were basic information to inform her young son about the military, Blackstone said, since they have several family members who are veterans. Blackstone then saw a few recommended videos about veterans experiencing homelessness, which at first she was hesitant to show her son. She decided to show him a video, which included imagery of those veterans with signs asking for help.”
