airbnb logoOur country has certainly seen its share of disasters this year between hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and the California wildfires, and awesome people are doing awesome things for some of the victims. Airbnb activated its Open Homes program for those who have lost their homes in the California fires. The program waves booking fees for victims of natural disasters and other calamities. They ask for hosts to donate any spare space for those displaced by the fires to stay while they get back on their feet. During Hurricane Irma, Xeryus and Letroi Miller, a family with two children, and Xeryus’s brother all got an Airbnb for free while they fled Florida, according to ABC News. The family, from Jacksonville, FL, was looking for a place to stay during the hurricane. Everything was booked solid in the surrounding states. The group eventually found a listing for a condo in Indiana. And the owner of the condo, Brandon Thompson, decided to waive the family’s rental fee. He explained, “They said things were kind of tight with them not knowing what was going to happen, and he’s in the Navy, he’s military, so it just seemed like the right thing to do. I was in a position where I could do it easily, and I knew it would make a big difference for them. It just felt right.” If you have an inspiring story like that to share, we’d love to hear it at 888-Sonrise or click here. The offer from Airbnb for those who are displaced from the California fires will continue until Oct. 30.
