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.

Jen Schmits Thomas said:

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.

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.

Jennifer Milliken said:

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’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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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)

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!

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.
