A young Oklahoman is on a mission to help under-privileged kids.

Tyson Baker is just 20 years old, but owns a clothing company called Reach. For every 250 shirts he sells, Baker donates 250 shirts. On Tuesday, Baker dropped off boxes of shirts at Citizens Caring for Children.

"This idea actually started when I was a senior in high school, when I heard about a 3rd grader being bullied for wearing the same shirt every day, and I admire the Tom's shoe business model, buy one give one and I thought why not with clothing," Baker said.

To start his company, Baker got a small business loan, bought screen printing equipment, and then taught himself how to use it, all in a garage.
