A western Kentucky boy is raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.

Gavin Howard, who will be 9 next month, told reporters( http://www.wdrb.com/story/24426969/w-ky-boy-raising-money-for-st-jude) that he has set a goal of raising $1,000 by his birthday. He is selling T-shirts and sweatshirts in order to meet his goal. Using this site, he is also collecting donations.

His mother, Jenny Howard, said her son first decided to donate to the hospital two years ago during a radio-thon fundraiser after listening to stories about his peers. "I was driving and looked over at him, and he had tears in his eyes," Howard said. That year he donated $45 that he had received for his seventh birthday. Last year, he donated $322 that he collected for his eighth birthday. He wanted to do more this year, so he decided to sell items. "He wanted to have a bake sale to give people something for their money, but I'm not the best cook, so we had to think of something else," Jenny Howard said.

The black shirts have the words "Peace, Love, Cure" written in gold on the front.

T-shirts ($10), Sweatshirts ($15) and Hoodies ($20) are available to order. Shipping fees will apply.
