For three years Airbnb has hosted Week for Good globally, in which the entire company is involved in charitable local projects. This year, Airbnb supported 250 projects in 50 cities from 14-18 May, representing 11,000 hours in which 3,400 Airbnb employees and hosts were involved in charitable causes.
In 2018, the Berlin team supported ten different organizations. Projects and organisations such as Refugees Welcome or AIDS/LifeCycle were supported by active cooperation or specialist knowledge. Other projects were about saying thank you. During a regulars’ table with Berlin hosts in our Berlin office, small gift packages with books and handicraft materials were packed for the reading mentor project. Through the project, children in more than 300 institutions in Berlin are supported by volunteers in reading and learning.
“The regulars’ table is a great event where Airbnb brings its hosts together, informs them and gives them the opportunity to broaden their horizons. We were very pleased to present our reading mentor project at the Global Week for Good and that the hosts then put together handicraft packages that the reading mentors can use for their work. That was a great action!”
