An eight-year-old boy from Maryland is doing some amazing things by helping more than 3,000 veterans.

Tyler Stallings' mother said her son has had a passion for helping veterans since he was just four-years-old.

The eight-year-old initially wanted to build homes for veterans whom he calls his heroes, but he decided to come up with a more realistic plan.

Tyler began making "Hero Bags" for homeless veterans.

The bags are filled with gloves, a blanket, a sweater, soap, and more.

In the four years since he began making the bags, Tyler has raised over $50,000 according to his GoFundMe account.
