Lawn Signs Say ‘Thank You’

It started with just a simple idea. While sitting in my house and making thank you signs with my 4-year-old daughter for the mail carriers and garbage pick-up service, I started thinking about all the people that are out in the world working to make my home quarantine with my family so much easier. From the medical workers who are working countless hours putting themselves at risk each day, to the supermarket delivery people who spend all day driving around giving us the food we need, to the people delivering packages, medicine and other necessities—they are all out there working to make our lives better.

I wondered how we could show gratitude on a larger scale, as a community as a whole. From there, the idea was born to make lawn signs to thank all the people who are making it possible for the majority of us to stay home, safe, with our needs taken care of. The signs read, “Thank you for being out there so we can be safe in here.”

The goal is to put them on front lawns all over the community to show our gratitude and support to those who are out there working for us. So far we have sold over 100 signs and delivered them to people’s front lawns, so there is no contact involved. Not only is it a sign of outward gratitude, but the funds raised from the purchase are going directly to local hospitals to buy medical necessities to keep our community healthy.

Our goal is to have signs on as many houses in the neighborhood as possible as a symbol of solidarity. If you are interested in buying a sign, please send 5$ (or more if you would like to donate more) to Zelle/QuickPay: [email protected] or Venmo: Jamie-WEiss-0. Then email your address to [email protected] and we will deliver your sign to your front lawn. It’s an easy and great way to show our gratitude and support to those around us and help our local healthcare community, which needs so much right now.
