When Russian forces invaded Ukraine Airbnb decided they were going to do something. They started asking Airbnb hosts to host refugees for free or for a discount. This is what they have asked their hosts to do and what they are doing:
- Provide a comfortable bed and basic amenities for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Learn more about hosting refugee guests
- Airbnb.org partners with nonprofits that check refugee guests for eligibility and assist them before, during, and after their stays.
- Airbnb provides Hosts with AirCover, which includes $1 million in liability insurance, $1 million in damage protection, and more.
- 100% of your donation will go toward connecting people with short term housing.
- Stays are completely free for guests of our program.
- Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed under your local tax laws.

3. Do Your Own Fundraiser
A friend of mine offered up one of his painting as a fundraiser. contacted everyone he knew online through social media to offer one of his painting for auction. He ended up raising $300 and matched that with $300 of his own. Pretty generous and thoughtful. Anyone can do this and every little bit helps the cause.
A group here in our city makes perogies and sells them for the people of Ukraine. They sell out within hours of making them.
No matter what you do, no matter how big or small, it all helps, and thank you!
