Airbnb Creates Permanent Tool For Disaster Victims To Find Nearby Housing
The company turns it's temporary disaster relief into an ongoing effort.
During the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, many Airbnb users offered up their homes to those affected by the storm. This behaviour inspired the company to get involved as well, who have recently decided to make disaster relief a permanent part of their website.
This particular tool can be activated in less than 30 minutes and includes features such as making a booking in areas affected by natural disaster for free, connect guests to hosts that have space to offer via a dynamic landing page as well as provide general disaster response information.
