Most kids plan weeks in advance about what they might do with their birthday money. Those same kids often use that money on the newest toy, or the video game that all of their friends are talking about.

One girl in Detroit used her birthday money in a completely different way. She bought lunch for local police officers.

According to the Huffington Post, 9-year-old Samya McLaughlin saw coverage of the Dallas shooting on TV, and wanted to show support for officers in any way that she could.

So she went out and bought food, and she went to the city’s 11th Precinct to bring the officers there bagged meals that included a sandwich, chips, fruit and a cookie.

Detroit officers showed their gratitude by honoring McLaughlin with a badge and an “Officer of the Day” certificate.
