Tiny Home Auction Will Benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
RE/MAX, LLC, (NYSE: RMAX) the Denver-based global real estate franchisor, is building a tiny home with the help of Dearborn, Michigan-based Henry Ford College (HFC) to raise money for longtime RE/MAX charitable partner Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals). RE/MAX agents have helped millions of kids and families through CMN contributions over the past 25 years.
RE/MAX enlisted the Architecture/Construction Technology program at Henry Ford College late last year to design and build the “RE/MAX Tiny Home for Tiny Tots,” which is almost finished. When complete, the fully outfitted tiny home will be sold through an online auction. The proceeds RE/MAX raises will be donated to CMN Hospitals, which provides care for more than 10 million children treated at 170-member hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.
“Our more than 26-year partnership with CMN Hospitals has shown us that miracles come in all shapes and sizes – and so do homes,” said Mike Reagan, RE/MAX Senior Vice President, Business Alliances. “In all dimension, style, and location of houses, RE/MAX agents are experts at matching their clients’ unique preferences to their perfect home. During the online auction, the highest bidder will not only achieve the dream of homeownership but also support sick and injured kids in their community.”
The tiny home movement has surged in the past decade, as more people vow to live minimally and conserve resources while still achieving the goal of homeownership. Many sources cite that a Tiny Home is 400 to 500 square feet, with some as small as just 80 square feet.
RE/MAX, a global network of more than 120,000 agents, and creative agency partner Camp + King saw the opportunity to build a tiny home as a way to raise money for CMN Hospitals while promoting the benefits of homeownership for all styles and budgets.
