As part of Disney|ABC's "25 Days of Christmas" initiative, Freeform, Disney's young adult television network, kicked off "25 Days of Christmas" and the gift-giving initiative "Pop Up Santa" this morning, live, on "Good Morning America," by actress Aisha Dee ("The Bold Type") and "GMA" co-host Ginger Zee, announcing the network will be giving away a tiny house to a family in need this holiday season. 2017 has been a rough year for many with hurricanes to wildfires, leaving many people homeless and lives disrupted. Freeform wants to bring a little joy back into someone's life by gifting a custom-designed micro-abode.

Starting today and running through Sunday, Dec. 10, viewers can go here to submit a photo and tell why they are deserving of a chance to win their own piece of tiny luxury. On Friday, Dec. 22, the deserving winner will be announced, live, on "Good Morning America."

· "The Fosters" actress Cierra Ramirez returns to her hometown of Houston to help Covenant House, a shelter for homeless youth, who are in desperate need of supplies after the recent hurricane.
