Last February, at the same time Rescue’s CEO was making the media rounds, AirBnB announced that they would contribute USD 4 million to the International Rescue Committee to support the world’s population in critical situations of displacement.
This is not the first time AirBnB has stepped up to help those in need, and they have created a public statement about their interest in helping with people who’ve been displaced. Airbnb reports to have provided temporary housing for evacuees “in 54 global disasters,” often through partnerships similar to the current one with IRC.
Reuters recently reported on Airbnb’s plans to house 100,000 people for free, and their embraced social media campaign #WeAccept.
