14 Year Old Creates Non-Profit To Make Teddy Bears Out Of Fallen Officers’ Uniforms

When one becomes a police officer, they put their life on the line every day to serve and protect their city. This is not an easy job — not for the officer and not for their family either. Many officers are injured while on duty, or even worse, killed. The families that lose their loved ones to this job have to learn to go on without those most important to them. 14-year-old Megan O’Grady is doing something special to help the children and family members of fallen officers.

Megan created a non-profit organization that makes bears out of the fallen officers’ shirts and gives them to families that have lost their loved ones.

She calls her organization Blue Line Bears. 

Not only does Megan make all the bears herself, she also hand delivers them.

This was the first bear to be delivered and Megan handed it to Lt. Clayton’s son, Johnny Brinson.
