Airbnb tries to help victims of Hurricane Sandy offering free accommodation

Airbnb tries to help victims of Hurricane Sandy offering free accommodation

is a service that allows you to find around the world. Grace is not about hotels, but houses ordinary people, for example, seek to rent their home to a visitor while they are on vacation, or have available an extra piece that can be leased for a tourist.

After Hurricane Sandy, leaving many victims in the eastern United States, the company launched a campaign to encourage people not affected, provide low cost housing to people who lost their homes or whose homes are not habitable at this time.

Going forward, the company announced today an agreement with the government of New York to provide free accommodation to those affected, with more than 100 places available. Airbnb says it has 20,000 properties in the area affected by the storm, and that 2,500 people have already rent in the area since the storm occurred.

Airbnb’s move not only helps people in need of housing, but also involves improving the position of the company, which is being reviewed by regulators due to the market that handles.
