Appleton, Wis. (WFRV) - Thanks to a Fox Valley man, Wisconsin residents will soon have the option to get "In God We Trust" put on their vehicle license plates.

David Hinds brought the idea to Neenah Representative Dean Kaufert, who wrote up the legislation.

Hinds had to raise $9,000 for the Department of Transportation design and start up costs for the plate. 

Most of the money came from residents across the state.

All the proceeds will go towards Wisconsin's veterans.

Those plates are expected to be made available for purchase sometime in November.
