They say it takes a village to raise a child, but in this case, twenty children are hoping to raise a village.

Students in Seattle, Washington, along with 10 adult volunteers, recently came together to raise almost $40,000 to build the “Impossible City.”  It’s an “eco-village” backed by the nonprofit Sawhorse Revolution to provide shelter for people living the homeless encampment called Nickelsville.

The money raised through Indiegogo will go towards the erection of personal and secure shelters that will feature composting toilets, a community cook space to prepare meals, and a solar-powered hub to power warm water and lighting at night.
