Airbnb gives members $1 million to use on random acts of kindness

(pr newswire) Airbnb has invited its global community to help rid the world of strangers through personal and creative acts of hospitality through #OneLessStranger. Beginning today, the company will give approximately $10 – or the equivalent in foreign currency – to 100,000 Airbnb community members worldwide, totaling $1 million. Airbnb is asking members to use the money for a unique act of kindness with the goal of inspiring others to join in this global movement to help rid the world of strangers. Creative gestures of hospitality could range from using the funds to plant seeds or flowers in the community garden to buying items such as art and supplies for a local senior center, string to create friendship bracelets to share with strangers, or even ingredients for baked goods to hand out to those in need.
