Here’s your chance to help the homeless and get your own Jay Shafer/Four Lights Tiny House Company plans for just $250.

Shafer and affordable housing advocate, River King, have teamed up to build a 5-to-6 home community for the homeless in Sonoma County, California. Along with the houses, Shafer and King will create a common area and garden where children can play safely.

They are looking for $100,000 to complete the project, and in order to raise the funds, Four Lights is offering any of its designs for a tax-deductible donation of $250. This is really a win-win if you like Shafer’s designs and you support his mission to provide affordable housing for those in need.

Check out the video about Tiny Houses for Humanity below, and head over here to donate (and get your blueprints!). To see Shafer’s plans, go to Four Lights Tiny House Company.

I nearly started crying when I discovered Hailey Fort. She is an amazing 9 year old girl with a heart of gold!

With the help of her family, Hailey builds portable shelters and grows food for the homeless in her town. Her mom, Miranda Fort, says, “This was all Hailey’s idea.”

Four years ago Hailey started helping the homeless when she saw a homeless man on the side of the street. She asked her mom if there was anything she could do to help him. They bought him lunch and ever since then Hailey has taken it upon herself to start a garden to donate food and build micro houses for the homeless in Bremerton, Washington.

I love Hailey’s comment on growing food for the homeless, “Empty stomachs hurt. They break concentration and make the future seem impossible. Giving food is essential to creating health.”

Together we can make a difference. If you would like to donate to Hailey’s Harvest you can do so here.  Please enjoy and re-share below.
