Tyler's mission began two years ago when he came across four deputies in a store. He bought them mini donuts with his own allowance money to say 'thank you' for their service. 

"Police officers risk their lives - for me, my family and friends," Tyler said.

Tyler said he has visited 31 states to pass out over 60,000 donuts.
