Deputy Chris Johnston & Tyler ‘AKA: Donut Boy’ Carach
Tyler’s Story and now Mission to Show his Support for Law Enforcement began with a local act of kindness.
From Tyler’s Mom, Sheena Carach: Tyler began a mission to thank every Police Officer in America in August 2016. While we were at a local store, he saw four deputies and asked if he could use his allowance money to buy them their favorite snack...donuts! After doing so, he asked why the Officers were so excited over a snack and I explained that unfortunately a lot of people choose to judge a whole by a few and because of that some people were not very kind to Officers and even tried to hurt them. I explained that you can never judge a whole by a few because there is no group that is 100% perfect and the Officers were super excited about the snack because they were happy to be appreciated. It was at that moment, Tyler decided he wanted to do more for the Officers. He told me he was going to thank every single Officer in America and give them each their favorite treat...DONUTS...or power rings as some may call them! Tyler was passionate about his idea and we agreed to help him by starting locally and seeing what happened...
Fast forward to 2018, 22 months into his program, 34 states and 65,000 donuts later and this little donut boy is still doing what he does best...thanking his heroes and best friends for the sacrifices they make daily for total strangers. (Tyler is a resident of Florida and has been featured on ABC, CBS news national, Steve Harvey and 60 second docs.)
Thank YOU Tyler!!
