Boy sacrifices birthday party to thank officers

A Michigan community is praising an 11-year-old boy for raising $10,000 for a nonprofit run by officers in his hometown.
Jeremie Bordua, of Lansing, used his 11th birthday party to host a ‘Thank You’ celebration for police.
He decided he wanted to show his appreciation after seeing “mean things” about officers in the news.
Jeremie felt like he could relate to the officers after he experienced bullying at his school.
“He wanted to do something nice for our officers to make them smile and cheer them up, and just let them know he still believes in them and he appreciates them,” said  Jeremie’s mother Marcella Telling.

About 250 people, including about 60 uniformed officers from Michigan showed up for the bash.
During the party, the 11-year-old announced the funds from his cookie sale and GoFunMe page will go to the Lansing Police Athletic League. A nonprofit organization run by Lansing Police Officers for at-risk youth.
He was also given his own uniform by the Lansing PD and made an honorary officer. This was very exciting for Jeremie because he is an aspiring police officer.
