If you watch HGTV's Home Town, you probably know a thing or two about Ben and Erin Napier’s hometown of Laurel, Mississippi. The small rural community is where they overhaul old homes for the show, raise their daughter Helen, and operate their businesses: Laurel Mercantile and Scotsman's General Store. Their love for Laurel is neverending. And now, they want to offer one lucky fan a chance to visit—all while supporting a good cause.

Erin took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that she and Ben had teamed up with Children's of Mississippi for an exciting opportunity. In her caption, she reflected on a tour they took of the hospital last year. "We will never forget what it was like to see first-hand the Mississippi kids’ lives changed by the care they received there," she wrote.

However, she noted that the hospital, which is the only children's hospital in the state, was cramped and desperately needed more space to accommodate children in need. "As parents to our precious Helen, we see the need to have the best care possible for all of Mississippi’s children," she said.

Fortunately, the facility recently opened the newly constructed Kathy and Joe Sanderson tower, which ultimately doubled the hospital's size. And Erin and Ben want to help the hospital pay for this new upgrade. "So we are participating in a fundraising effort to give away a chance for one lucky person to experience Laurel, MS, the town we call home," she wrote.
