My name is Sheena, and I'm helping my son Tyler with his campaign - here's a message from him to all of you! Thanks for reading! 
Hello, my name is Tyler and I am 9 years old!

In August 2016 (when I was 8), I was at a local corner store when I saw 4 deputies. I told my mom that cops favorite drink was coffee and their favorite snack was donuts. She laughed!! Then I asked if I could buy them donuts with my own money. I DID and they were so HAPPY! When we left I asked my mom why they were so happy and she said cops were having a hard time right now and that sometimes people choose to judge a whole by a few, and its important never to do that!

I decided right then I wanted to cheer them up, so I told my mom I wanted to thank every cop in America and give them each a donut! Mom said maybe we should start local, but I knew I could do this! So far I have given out over 7000 donuts and am currently on a 6-week road trip thanking Officers all over the east coast of America.... I am giving out over 10,000 donuts on this trip alone!

I want to keep spreading joy to Officers and keep inspiring others to put kindness back into the world! I have been asked by many people if I have a fundraising page and so I have decided to make this one. I appreciate your support and even more so, your support of our LEOs!!
