Butler 5th grader Jax Sealey began collecting aluminum cans a year and a half ago. 

He donates all of the proceeds to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. 

Last year, the 11-year-old raised $13,000. 

This year, he’s already passed $14,000, and hopes to make it to $20,000 by next April. 

Because of Jax’s generosity and big heart, he is in the running for a national humanitarian award from US Cellular. 

His mother Jara Parker is very proud.

“And the more he gets nominated, the better chances there he wins $10,000 that goes toward that charity, which would be St. Jude’s,” she said.
