A caped figure is on a mission to rescue officers from hunger and brighten their days. It’s Donut Boy - A.K.A. Tyler Carach - a nine-year-old kid from Bratt, Florida who’s traveling the East coast this summer bringing sweet treats to cops from Florida to New Hampshire.
Donut Boy’s mission is simple: to thank every cop in the U.S. with a donut. “I wanted to thank them because they’re my friends,” young Tyler explains. “I want to remind them that people still care.” And he does it all wearing a superhero cape which reads “I donut need a reason to thank a cop” in sparkly letters.
He started his mission last summer, buying donuts with his own money for officers he saw in a store. And now, to fund his mega-mission, his family gets donations from donut shops and runs crowdfunding campaigns. During this six-week trip, they plan to give away over 10,000 donuts to officers.
In case you were wondering if all of this was really a ruse so Tyler could eat a bunch of donuts, Tyler says he's only eaten 2 donuts. “I don’t eat sugar much.”
Keep up the good work, Donut Boy!
