Girl makes 'Thin Blue Line' bracelets for police

13News Now Chenue Her has the story

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WVEC) -- It's no accident that Angelina Hunter is spending Halloween night waiting for Portsmouth police instead of going door-to-door like most kids.

While they're out getting all the candy they can get, Angelina came to give.

For the last year, she's been making these bracelets for police and first responders as part of her "Thin Line Project".

Not only does she spend her time crafting, she spends her own money from chores to fund the project.

"It all comes out of my allowance," she said. "I started doing it after I saw all the problems with the law enforcement and everything so I thought that they needed something to make their lives a little better."

She's made and handed out bracelets to about 50 police officers. That's not even including the firefighters, EMS workers, and dispatchers.

In total, she's given out about 70 bracelets.

"I wanted to make a difference in all of the law enforcement and community helpers' lives," said Angelina.

The big difference that comes with these little bracelets is why Angelina is choosing to give, instead of get.

"Thank you all for your service," she said as a group of police officers headed out the door to start their night shifts.

If you'd like to know more about the bracelets or buy one for $3, you can get more information by emailing her at Angiesthinlineproject@gmail.com.
