This Christmas marks five years that the Slade family of Gilbert, Arizona, has been creating Christmas video cards. In 2013, the family built a rotating room for their video, but this year, they built an entire tiny house.

“This year we decided as a family to do something a little different, to help someone in need for Christmas,” said one of the Slade children. The family built the house so someone can have a home for the holidays.

To find someone to give the house to, the Slades have asked that people nominate someone they know who is in need of a home for the holidays. The entry fee is a $20 donation to Charity: Water, a nonprofit organization that provides clean drinking water to people in need. Submissions should include an essay about the person being nominated to receive the house.
