Not All Heroes Wear Donut Capes

Growing up, I was always taught that cops were the good guys and they fought the bad guys. Unfortunately, a few “bad cops” have seemed to tamper the reputation of our men and women in blue. I’m not naive – I know that there are shady cops out there, but it doesn’t mean that we should disregard the fact that these people are constantly risking their lives to keep ours safe.
Luckily, through the innocent eyes of “Donut Boy” (also known as Tyler) we’re able to see that once we strip away the negativity and stereotypes, we’re left with compassion.
In 2016, Tyler asked a few police officers if he could buy them donuts using his allowance money. He felt so great after seeing their appreciation that he was inspired to buy donuts for cops all over the country and “show cops that people still care.”
Fast forward to 2018 and Tyler’s proudly given away over 51,000 donuts to deserving officers.

Tyler’s donuts are purchased with donations from supporters on his site, I Donut Need a Reason to Thank a Cop. Whether or not you support Donut Boy or your local PD, take a moment to learn a big lesson from a youthful boy in a colorful donut cape. Because at the end of the day, most cops are still the good guys.
