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.

This is “The Big Adventures of Tiny House,” a  story “about an old farmhouse that gets recycled into something new: TINY, a little house with a big heart – and WHEELS!”

In order to get this book on the shelves, the illustrator and author started a Kickstarter campaign that’s up for a few more days. They need just over $2,000 to reach their goal so they can print 2,000 copies of the book. Consider donating $1 or more here. Read an excerpt from the book below the pictures.

Plus, they will donate a portion of the book sales to Makes A Village, an organization that builds tiny houses for people facing homelessness.
