You Could Win the Tiny Home of Your Dreams While Supporting California’s Homeless Population

The winner will get a custom-made tiny home up to $100,000 value.

The tiny house movement is—ironically—very huge. Folks across the country are downsizing their regular-sized homes and immersing themselves in a different, more sustainable way of living. While some families pack their lives into one mini property, others get creative, like the Brinks, a family of four in Kentucky who created their own six-part tiny home village. If you’re a fan of FYI’s series Tiny Home Nation (available to watch on Netflix) or have been contemplating the idea of a smaller space, we’ve compiled a list of 40 of the best tiny homes to buy off Amazon right now. However, before you add a home to cart (what a wild thing to say!) you may want to give your luck a try with Omaze’s amazing tiny home contest, which also supports a great cause!

Omaze, an online fundraising platform for non-profits, is currently holding a contest where you can win your own tiny home completely tailored to you. Modern Tiny Living, a tiny home design and construction company, will build the winner his or her *ideal* tiny home. Whether this dream dwelling includes solar panels, a party deck on the roof, cozy sleeping lofts, a home office, or whatever else your heart desires, the team will work with you to make it happen. Basically anything goes as long as it doesn’t total over $100,000 (luckily, taxes are all included). As the contest description says, “it’s four walls, a roof and plenty of room for all your dreams.”

Omaze is currently holding a contest where you can win your dream tiny home designed by Modern Tiny Living. All proceeds will go to People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) in California.

what you’ll get

Are you ready to become the architect of the life you want? You are? Good. Because you just scored a fully custom tiny home! You’ll work with the amazing Modern Tiny Living team to create the perfect tiny home for you. That’s right—tiny, one-of-a-kind and all yours. Want to add a rock climbing wall? Go green with solar panels and a greywater system? Fill your “empty nest” with hardwood floors and all the shiplap? The sky’s the limit! Because a tiny home is about so much more than living tiny.

No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.

who you’ll help

PATH is on a mission to end homelessness, and now more than ever their work is saving lives. While the rest of California stays at home, those experiencing homelessness don’t have anywhere to turn, and PATH will remain on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis to help our most vulnerable. Simultaneously, PATH will continue their work toward ending homeless for as many Californians as possible. That’s why your donation to this experience will help transform the existing first floor of PATH into a hub of vital support services for thousands of homeless individuals. And to commemorate your generosity toward this life-changing project, your name will be featured on the wall inside the hub once the renovation is done!

The Omaze Community Hub will be a welcoming space that provides a center for employment preparation, placement assistance for those in need of permanent housing and so much more.

Thanks to you, this incredible organization can continue to meet the critical needs of those they serve, and keep those in their care safe and healthy.

Winner Confirmation Process:

Within 10 business days of campaign close, we’ll use an automated random drawing process to draw a potential winner(s) for that campaign. A confirmation process, which may include a background check, will then take place to ensure the potential winner meets the legal standards required. Winner and, if applicable, their guest(s) agree to cooperate fully with Omaze in Omaze conducting any background check(s), which includes providing information requested by Omaze including, but not limited to, full legal names and addresses. If the Prize includes meeting a celebrity, meeting a public figure, or attending a special event and any background check indicates, in Omaze’s sole discretion, that the potential winner or the potential winner’s guest(s) pose a danger to or may harm the reputation of any person or entity involved in the sweepstakes, Omaze may disqualify said winner and move on to the next randomly drawn potential winner. Pending a positive outcome of the confirmation process, an Omaze representative will notify the potential winner via email and/or phone. The potential winner must respond within the time period designated in the notification, or Omaze may move on to another randomly drawn potential winner. Before confirming a potential winner as the winner, Omaze may require the potential winner to confirm their eligibility. Once that’s done, the potential winner and guest(s) must execute and return all required documents within the time frame specified by Omaze. If you do not execute and return all required documents within the time frame specified by Omaze, you will forfeit the Prize and Omaze will move on to another randomly drawn potential winner.

Travel companions are also required to sign a liability/publicity release prior to issuance of tickets. Additionally, travel companions/guests of the winner may be subject to a background check, which may impact their ability to participate in the Prize.

NO PURCHASE, PAYMENT, OR CONTRIBUTION NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Contributing will not improve chances of winning. Void where prohibited.

Transparency:

At Omaze, we believe fundraising should be about impact, not percentages. Our model allows us, in partnership with Charities Aid Foundation America (we call them CAFA), to really make a difference and disrupt the way society traditionally thinks about charitable giving.

Here’s how it works: Omaze and CAFA work together to offer incredible prizes and experiences that anyone can potentially win. You don’t have to donate to enter, but if you do, your donation to CAFA is then used to make a charitable grant to a great cause, which we love. Omaze pays for everything that’s needed to run the sweepstakes, which means the only ones taking a chance are the entrants (you!)—not the Designated Grantee. The organizations can spend less time worrying about raising funds, and instead focus their energy on doing awesome work.

*Omaze also invests in securing the prizes for the typical Omaze Owned campaign, so for these, from every dollar you donate, 15 cents is used by CAFA to make a grant to the associated charity. If there are multiple charities, then grants of equal share are made to each charity. 70 cents is typically used to actually get the prize, process payments and advertise to awesome people like you (Omaze Owned campaigns require more significant marketing efforts by Omaze and do not rely (or rely to a much smaller degree) on the work and name of celebrities to help raise awareness and promote the campaign). The remaining 15 cents of your dollar goes to Omaze—it’s used to cover the cost of providing and maintaining the technology and team that makes this all happen.

The result? Causes get a guaranteed grant with no risk and no overhead or investment, our lucky winners get awesome prizes, and everyone else gets to help a great cause and spread joy!
