Founded in 2008, Airbnb’s mission is to create a world where people can belong when they travel by being connected to local cultures and having unique travel experiences. Its community marketplace provides access to millions of unique accommodations from apartments and villas to castles and treehouses in more than 65,000 cities and 191 countries.
Since 2015, Airbnb has been working with Make-A-Wish to provide accommodations for wish kids across the globe. In 2017, Airbnb expanded the partnership by pledging $1 million USD of in-kind support for travel accommodations and set an ambitious goal to grant a wish a day. Along with housing, the donation also includes transformational experiences for wish kids -- like Claire pictured below -- through the company’s new Trips platform.
With the help of its host community, Airbnb is excited to be one of the largest hospitality sponsors for Make-A-Wish globally. Their support will help bring us one step closer in our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child around the world!
