Airbnb starts non-profit for those who need a place to stay during a crisis


Airbnb.org will partner with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE). It has committed 400,000 shares of Airbnb stock to support Airbnb.org, and co-founders Joe Gebbia, Brian Chesky and Nate Blecharczyk have pledged to donate an extra $6 million on top of that as well.

On top of the initial commitments, Airbnb.org will also commit $1 million over the next two years to cover stays for IFRC staff and volunteers and another $1 million to CORE to fund stays for COVID-19 workers who need to administer tests, conduct contact tracing, provide flu shots, coordinate quarantine support and those traveling to vaccine distribution centers. 

According to Airbnb, hosts who support Airbnb.org in this way will receive a special badge on their profile as a way to recognize their good deed.
