Julian earned the money by recycling cans, his mother, Stacey Cauble, said.

He donated the money to WSOC-TV’s 9 School Tools program.

‘My son is only 6 years old, and he works real hard to get enough cans so that he can buy for others. He sits in our garage every week stomping and taking tabs off his cans, and then once a year my husband takes him to get the money for them,’ Cauble said.
