HONOLULU, Hawaii (WTHR) – An 11-year-old boy from Florida made a journey across the country with the goal of thanking cops in all 50 states.

Tyler Carach has been dubbed “The Donut Boy” for his good deeds, thanking cops with donuts.

He has given away about 80,000 donuts to individual officers in 49 states. Hawaii was his last stop.

On Monday, he visited Honolulu police officers and brought them 20 boxes full of pastries. Officers gave him a tour of HPD’s museum and shared some hot malasadas.

"After meeting 4 cops at a local store and buying them donuts in August 2016, I decided that I wanted to give donuts to all the cops in America," Carach wrote on his Facebook page. "My mom says that she doesn't know if I can give donuts to every single cop, but that she will help me give them to as many as possible and come up with other ways to say THANK YOU to our protectors everywhere. One day I want to be a cop and protect the world too, so this is very important to me!"

On Tuesday, he’ll travel to Hilo to thank Hawaii County police officers. Then, he’ll visit officers in Wailuku and Lihue.
