Janie's FundI need your help!  Ever heard the song by Aerosmith, "Janie's got a gun"? It is a song about a young girl abused by her family. Unfortunately, this happens more than you think.

We all use our home as our place to reside- but it's much more than that.  It reflects our personality, our character, and our sense of style.  But a home is also a place where we can get very creative and express our talents.  It's an opportunity to go against the grain and not be so "cookie-cutter".

Here are some pretty amazing homes from around the world, where many of these folks have gotten very creative.

These were 70 dome houses built for villagers that lost their homes in an earthquake.  These monolithic domes can withstand earthquakes and winds up to 190mph!
