Airbnb helps Paris victims' families with free places to stay
With the horrific terrorist attacks taking place in Paris over the weekend, the world is reeling and some of the world‘s largest technology companies are trying to help. Airbnb has launched a portal that helps anyone affected by the attacks find (or offer) a free place to stay.
According to the accommodation listing company, if you’re determined to meet with a family member or got stuck in the city during border closures, you won’t have to pay a thing. Airbnb will waive its service fees for the time being. Your check-in date has to be no later than Nov. 17th, but that seems to be the only condition attached.
Technology companies are starting to do more and more is response to disasters. With everything from earthquakes to floods, these big firms that are bringing us the products and services we want, are trying to give something back as well.
