SHREWSBURY, Mo. – A Missouri 11-year-old is mowing lawns in order to help support the Black Lives Matter organization.

Jack Powers recently started a lawn mowing business in order to give his proceeds to the movement, KMOV reported.

“I just wanted to make a change and I didn’t like how people were being treated,” Powers said.

Powers hung signs for his business and plan to support Black Lives Matter. He was overwhelmed by the response.

“There’s been a lot of change, flux and hardship so to see Jack’s poster and find a helper, it actually opened up a great conversation with my son about how he can be a helper,” neighbor April Strelinger said.

While Strelinger did not need her lawn mowed, she did donate.

He has raised $110 so far.
