Today’s Solutions: July 06, 2022

Airbnb wants to help people find places to live, whether it’s someone on vacation or someone who needs refuge. That’s why the home sharing company announced a new initiative designed to help displaced people find housing solutions. The company launched a new Donations tool that will let Airbnb hosts kick back a portion of their income to organizations designed to help people who are in need of temporary housing. Airbnb hosts will be able to select a percentage of fares that they would like to give, and 100 percent of those donations will give to nonprofits. Donors will get regular updates to let them know how their contributors have helped others find places to stay. Airbnb Donations is an expansion of the company’s existing Open Homes initiative, which launched in 2017 and encourages hosts to open their doors for those who need a place to stay. According to Airbnb, the program has already helped 25,000 people and it hopes to provide temporary housing to 100,000 by 2022.
