Holiday sale and silent auction Dec 2 offers unique gifts while addressing homelessness
Madison-area residents can be part of a ho-ho-homegrown solution to homelessness this holiday season!
The OM Build – OM Village Tiny Homes: Occupy Madison, Inc holiday sale and silent auction will run one day:
Sunday, December 2 from 11 am to 3 pm
at OM Village, 304 North Third Street in Madison.
Raging Grannies will perform holiday tunes at 1 pm and Mike Winckler will sing folk songs at 11:15.
The sale will feature a wide variety of unique holiday gifts made by OM residents and volunteers, including Wisconsin-shaped cutting boards, holiday ornaments, holiday trees from reclaimed wood, handmade rolling pins, jewelry, decorative magnets, potted plants … and more!
The silent auction will include fabulous items from local businesses and artists… and more!
Shoppers at the OM Village Holiday Sale will enjoy refreshments and take tours of the OM Village Tiny Homes, 98 square foot residences that allow formerly homeless community members to enjoy warmth, safety and privacy in a supportive community on Madison’s east side. OM Village remains the only village of formerly homeless people to be integrated into a residential community in the entire United States.
Since Occupy Madison’s founding in 2011 and OM Village’s opening in 2014, the nonprofit has gained support from neighbors and admirers across the country and around the world. The proceeds from the OM Holiday Sale will go towards completion of the village, which includes adding community space, a kitchen and four more Tiny Homes.
5pm (or so), 304 N Third St., Madison

On Friday, November 21, we got the Occupancy Permit for the Village. On Saturday, November 22, 2014, Betty and Chris who have been living in their house for nearly a year, on the street where they have to move it every 24 or 48 hours to comply with parking requirements and without running water or electricity, are moving to their new home! With running water, electricity, flush toilets, showers and a community. The move is a big change. They’ve been through a lot with Occupy, with no legal place to live for so long. They have also been the center of a lot of media attention being the “first” in our grand adventure. Join us in welcoming them home!
