I am writing about this house I saw on the news,......In 2005 we moved here from Texas and began having grand mal siezures. I am a professional illustrator and need space to do my work. our place is small and far away from decent medical help, we'd love to relocate and we have the $20.00. All we want is a regualr house that is modern enough to not seeem like we are camping out. If I had the space I need, I might be able to re-start my business and get back into the red again. I's say "all we want for chriustmas is a decent place to live" but that would be cleche. but my spouse and myself really need a close proximity to good health care, and we would really love a house we could call our own, maybe have a little garden and the feeling of home.

I have heard of contests like this. So for whatever reason it is, I find myself ready to enter my first contest. Yes, I will pay the entry fee and write my reason for why I should win the home. Good luck to all of us as we await the wonderful results of this contest.

I heard not enough people entered the contest so Tran said he will divide the money between three charities: Habitat for Humanity, Best Friends Animal Shelter and Citizens for Health.
