There are a whole lot of reasons to love tiny homes, from the practicality of minimalist living to their downright cuteness. And there’s one more big reason to love this one in particular: Buying it could help save millions of sick kids.

The Tiny Home for Tiny Tots is a collaboration between Re/Max and architecture students at Henry Ford College in Michigan, who designed and built the charming Craftsman cottage from the ground up. Now, the tiny home is being sold through an online auction, with all proceeds going to provide care for the more than 10 million children treated at CMN Hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.

While this more-than-worthy cause is reason enough to throw in a bid, it doesn’t hurt that the prize is a total tiny house lover’s dream. On the outside, blue painted tongue-and-groove pine siding and natural cedar siding make a charming first impression. Inside the 200-square foot cottage, vaulted ceilings and a lofted sleeping space make the home feel roomy, while cottage-inspired details like butcher-block countertops and a farmhouse sink bring on the coastal vibes.

And the best part about this pint-sized paradise? It’s on wheels, so no matter where you envision your tiny escape—along the breathtaking bluffs of California, perhaps? Or the quiet shores of the Chesapeake Bay?—this cottage can easily roll with you.
