Legislation for the plates required a minimum of 500 plates be sold.


On Wednesday, 50 more licenses needed to sell to make 500, but by late Thursday afternoon, only five more plates needed to be sold.


The deadline was October 31st.


The plates raise money for child abuse prevention programs.


Sarah Peterson with Deschutes County Early Learning is cautiously optimsitic.


"I just want to thank the community that stepped up and bought plates via mail or at the DMV.  I have a lot of personal stories of people who rallied and extremely thankful for that support."


State Representative Gene Whisnant was instrumental in getting this license plate legislation passed.


It helps raise thousands of dollars for local child abuse preention efforts, but more importantly, it's a moving billboard to raise awareness about  preventing child abuse.
