Illinois Girl Sends Handmade Crosses to Cops Across the Country

An 8-year-old girl is tapping into her creativity in trying to keep police officers safe across the country.  Arianna Nichols, of Illinois, started making crosses out of Perler beads she received for her birthday in August and has since made it her mission to distribute these crosses to police officers in every U.S. state. The first police department that Arianna provided her crosses to was the Madison County Sheriff’s Department in Illinois at the end of September. Since then, the little girl who wants to “spread God’s word” has sent 6,087 crosses to 90 departments in 30 states.
