4-yr-old girl takes piggy bank cash to police station—when cops learn why, they’re speechless

This little girl aspires to be a police officer when she grows up, and she is well on the way of realizing her dream to help others. Last year, she contacted a police officer to come search out “monsters” in her new house—this year she has gone one step further!

Four-year-old Sidney Fahrenbruch, from Longmont, Colorado, is friends with the local police department. Sidney’s interest with the police began one day when she and her mom were out in their car, and she suddenly noticed a policeman standing in the heat of the sun, directing the ongoing traffic. The little girl felt so bad for him, she got him a bottle of water.

Last year, she met Longmont police officer David Bonday, and the story made headlines in many newspapers when Officer Bonday went to her house to flush out the “monsters” she was convinced were there.

Sidney became familiar with the rest of the police in Longmont, and when she recently heard that Officer Kyle Zulauf was suffering from pancreatic cancer, the little girl decided to take matters into her own hands.

Many of Zulauf’s co-workers in the department began to help by raising funds to help him pay for his treatments. Learning all this, Sidney was heartbroken and wanted to save Officer Zulauf, so she carried the contents of her piggy bank down to the police station and offered the contents, which amounted to US$9, to help pay for ongoing treatment for Officer Zulauf.

Sidney’s mom said she had been saving her money up to buy a toy, but decided Officer Zulauf was far more needy. “To help people who has [sic] cancer because that’s nice,” Sidney said, according to The Denver Channel.

Officer Bonday was moved at her actions. “For a four-year-old that can step up and say at four, ‘I understand cancer is a bad thing and being nice is a good thing and I want to do my part to help out.’ It’s just super special,” said Officer Bonday.

Longmont’s Department of Public Safety wrote in their Facebook post, “Words are not available for what this means to us.”

“Thank you Sidney (and family) for your kindness,” they said.

Children thinking of others before themselves are indeed what our world needs, and with their innocent nature, they are able to leave an impact on adults around them that leads to a positive change of heart.
