You may have noticed those yellow ‘Thank You Jesus’ signs in yards all across the Piedmont.  Check this out: The ‘Thank You Jesus Movement’ has just planted their 100,000th yard sign.  BTW: Proceeds from the signs go to the Thank You Jesus Mission, designed to provide grants to churches and non-profits in rural areas of North Carolina. This can be for educational training, food banks, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and more.

Details can be found on the website: thankyoujesussigns.org.

FYI: The ‘Thank You Jesus movement’ along with those yellow signs was started by 16 year old Lucas Hunt, a native of Asheboro.
