I donated $25 for each decade that I have been fortunate enough to be able to afford my housing. I consider myself lucky to have had 30 years of uninterrupted residence in decent housing. Most people are but one or two very unfortunate events from being on the street. That should not be the status quo. Everyone deserves access to quality housing in this country.

I gave $81 because my 81-year-old mom just celebrated her first anniversary living at a retirement community. She's happy there, but it was hard to leave the house she'd lived in for more than 50 years.

I have been very fortunate to always have a home, and the address of the home I grew up in was 4302.

I learned about the HAND organization during HCLA Class of 2019! I am proud to support such an amazing organization!

HAND, Inc. has made a much needed impact in our community to make #housing4all possible. I am so appreciative that they are examining housing at many intersections including domestic violence. I chose to give a gift of $25 because I was fortunate to my buy my first home in Hamilton County when I was 25.
Aug. 31, 2019, 5 p.m.
I am donating $86 because that's the year that I first moved to Hamilton County (although parts of my family moved here in 1964!) #housing4all means that families can continue to thrive here, seniors can stay here, and employers can fill the jobs that support our community.

I chose this number in honor of the 106 households currently able to benefit from HAND's safe, affordable and stable apartments in Hamilton County. I am proud to work with such a great organization to help this number grow.

HAND and their staff do so much to ensure our community offers housing for ALL. I chose $46 as I get ready to celebrate my 46th birthday.
Aug. 27, 2019, 10:56 p.m.
I’m giving to this campaign because affordable housing is an important issue, and because my dear friend Andrea Davis is working passionately for this cause. I picked 40 because I recently turned 40 years old and so many people have supported me in getting to that important milestone!

From my grandmother I learned that respecting our elders should be a courtesy ingrained in every one of us. She was intelligent, interesting and fun to be with. If you are lucky enough to have or know an elder spend time with them, be polite, ask for advice, eat together, tell them how much you appreciate and respect them. Get to know them and honor them.
Aug. 27, 2019, 12:48 p.m.
I chose 19 because I have been married for 19 years wto my amazing husband and we have been incredibly blessed to have a home to share all these years.

The project in Sheridan makes me think of how important Anderson High School is to my hometown. The community has struggled to figure out how to re-purpose this icon since the school closed in 1997. If you add up all the numbers in the school's zip code (46011), the number is 12.

We need affordable housing for everyone, hopefully someday soon affordable housing will include solar to help keep utility costs down.

This is $10 for each of the 14 homes I have lived in so far and grateful for each and every one. I strongly support HAND and their tireless work to create #housing4all . Proud #BCE member, Jill Troha

23, favorite number! Everyone deserves a home of their own!
Aug. 23, 2019, 1:47 p.m.
So many people need a safe place to live 52 weeks in a year.

I am donating $34 representing the 34 units that the WOODA Group is building in the old Adams Elementary School Building in Sheridan. I am glad that someone has stepped up to develop the property and to put in affordable apartments for the community.
Aug. 23, 2019, 12:07 p.m.
I gave $11 because that’s how long I’ve lived in Hamilton county. I realize it’s a small amount, but this was a meaningful number.
Aug. 23, 2019, 11:11 a.m.
I purchased my first home 29 years ago. Everyone should be able to enjoy the place they live and be able to call it "HOME"!
Aug. 23, 2019, 10:57 a.m.
I choose to donate today because I am so lucky to have lived in my home for 32 years!!
Aug. 22, 2019, 2:06 p.m.

Our house number in Fishers ends in 17! As young professionals, my husband and I struggled to find a home in the area in our price range and hope that with the work of HAND and other partners housing becomes more affordable and attainable for all.

Housing is critical for happiness and on a basic level, security. So many of us take it for granted and are blessed with never having to worry about it.
55 is my age!

Appreciate the work you do! 4 kids so a favorite # indicative of how blessed I am!

Helping HAND means a lot to my daughter Brittany and she is determined to raise $10,000 by October 6th! I support my daughter and most definitely believe in affordable and safe housing for all. My husband and I were fortunate in that we were able to live and raise our daughters in his family's farm home for the first 23 years of our marriage. We were blessed in that we were able to build our own home in 2004 where we have lived the past 15 years. So for our 38 years of marriage (23+15) in the two homes on the same site, I chose to donate $38. Come on Hamilton County, support HAND in raising their $10,000!

Tiday, August 21, is my son's 21st birthday. My family is so blessed that we have had safe housing for his entire life. Everyone deserves to have access to safe and affordable housing!!

I’m giving $33 because it wasn’t until age 33 that I bought a house for the first time (with my wife) and the search to find a home in our price range was very difficult. Moderately priced homes sell very quickly in Hamilton County and I know there are many people out there much worse off than me financially who are having a very difficult time finding a home they can afford. We need a variety of housing options in order to help support our businesses who are looking for workers who live nearby.
Aug. 20, 2019, 11:31 p.m.
My wife and I are donating $27 because we have been fortunate enough to be homeowners for 18 years. We've owned 3 different homes during that time, had our three kids, and three pets. (18+3+3+3=27)
Aug. 19, 2019, 9:21 p.m.
I chose to give $53 because that is the number of years I have lived in Noblesville. From growing up in an old rental farmhouse, to a house trailer, to my family home, to my current home, I have always loved my community and all that it represents. Affordable housing is a topic that is important in my work with Family Promise of Hamilton County where we empower families experiencing homelessness to find safe and affordable housing. HAND is a vital partner in our work with families!
Aug. 17, 2019, 8:13 p.m.
No real magic behind the number I chose as it's what we had to spare. I just want to give back, so that others have can a comfortable, happy home.
Aug. 17, 2019, 2:39 p.m.
I chose 6 because it is the number of years I have lived in my home. HAND is about more than housing, it’s about building homes and community! Thank you for your support of HAND and all their wonderful work for our community!

I’m donating $16.00 to celebrate my birthday and the kick-off to HAND’s month long fundraising campaign #housingforall! Will you join me?
Aug. 16, 2019, 2:39 p.m.
I donated $82.89 today to honor the birthday of 2 of the most important people in my life -- my son Steve & his wife Kristen. Their birthdays are August 2 & August 9. They are a reminder to me of how important it is to have a safe, affordable place to live.

I have had the pleasure of working for HAND, Inc. for the past 10 months. I am so very glad to work for an organization that is so passionate about providing affordable, safe clean housing for all! The affordable housing and Home Repair Program are the most wonderful initiative Hamilton Count could have. I am proud to be part of such an impactful organization.

Being an affordable housing advocate in Hamilton County may be one of the biggest challenges in the state. I want to do all I can to help. My football jersey number was 51 in high school and college. Thus 102
Aug. 13, 2019, 4:23 p.m.
I picked 14 because I'm beginning my 14th year living in Hamilton County -- the longest I've ever lived in the same house! I'm supporting HAND, Inc. and #Housing4All because I believe that diverse communities are strong communities where I want to live.
Aug. 13, 2019, 1:42 p.m.
76 is the total of all of the ages in my household. We feel blessed that our family can all be under one roof with the safety and security to thrive. We know not everyone gets this benefit in life and appreciate that HAND is trying to change that with their Housing 4 All campaign!
Aug. 13, 2019, 10:52 a.m.
I am donating a dollar for every development HAND has, and one for it to grow on!

Aug. 12, 2019, 4:42 p.m.
We bought our first home in Fishers in '13 and our second home in Noblesville in '18. 13+18 = 31. In the words of my favorite farm girl from Kansas, there's no place like home!
Aug. 12, 2019, 4:33 p.m.
I have been a homeowner in Noblesville for 13 years. I was very lucky to find a home that I could afford, and mine required a ton of sweat-equity! I think it's vital that our communities make an effort to provide safe, healthy, affordable housing for everyone and that's why I'm supporting this cause!
Aug. 12, 2019, 4:22 p.m.
I am donating $26 to support #housing4all because everyone deserves a home to call their own, and I have had mine since I graduated from college 26 years ago.
