A formerly homeless teen entrepreneur has closed his designer bath products business in order to focus entirely on making and donating soaps to people with nowhere to live.

Donovan Smith, 13, plans to make 600 soaps per month in order to give back to the shelters that helped him and his mom during a time when they would have been out on the streets.

"People helped us and now I want to help others," Donovan tells PEOPLE. "It's my way of saying thank you."
