FORT WORTH, TX (KAUZ) -

A 10-year-old boy from Fort Worth is raising money for people who cannot afford hearing aids.

Braden Baker was born with a bilateral sensorineural hearing loss which forced him to wear hearing aids since he was a baby. 

Baker's dog chewed up his hearing aids twice which caused his parents to teach him an important lesson.

Baker's parents told him how lucky he was they were able to afford another pair for him and how other people in the world cannot afford them. 

Baker was on The Ellen Show on Tuesday and said it made him sad when he realized other people cannot afford hearing aids.

Below is the clip of Baker on The Ellen Show.

So, he set a goal to raise $1,000 to buy hearing aids for people who cannot afford them. So far he has raised nearly $26,000.

For his birthday, which is on November 14, he is taking a trip to Guatemala. Baker is planning on giving out about 100 hearing aids to children and adults who cannot afford them. 

Here is a link to his GoFundMe page.
