"I like to give blue ones to the police officers."
One little 8-year-old girl from Illinois sits down at her kitchen table with a big box full of colored beads and makes crosses to send to police officers around the country. When asked why she does it, her answer was simple.
"I make crosses to spread God's Word and to protect the officers," Arianna Nichols said.
So far, Arianna Nichols has given out more than 6,000 crosses to law enforcement officers in 33 states. She has even shipped a package of 50 crosses to police officers in Sydney, Australia.
The little girl's mother, Laura Nichols, told Fox News that her daughter hopes to send crosses out to the remaining 17 states.
"I like to give blue ones to the police officers, and sometimes black for the fallen officers," Arianna Nichols said. “And for the firefighters, I like to do reds and yellows, because it’s fire colors."
When she's not giving her handmade crosses to police officers, she likes to share them with her friends, family and fellow church members. She even gives them out as gifts to restaurant workers.
