An 11-year old Lansing, MI boy helped raise over $11,000 to throw an appreciation party for police officers this past week.

Jeremie Bordua opted to throw the party to show his support for law enforcement in lieu of throwing a birthday party for himself, saying he feels bad for police officers across the nation being “bullied.”

“It feels like they get bullied bad like I do. I just wanted to do this for them,” Bordua said.

Over 250 people attended the event, including more than 60 police officers, many from out of the state and as far away as Los Angeles.

Bordua and his mother raised the money by selling homemade cookies for $5 a dozen. They sold almost 300 dozen and will donate the rest of the money to the Lansing Police Athletic League.
