As reported by engadget, will partner with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE). It has committed 400,000 shares of Airbnb stock to support, and co-founders Joe Gebbia, Brian Chesky and Nate Blecharczyk have pledged to donate an extra $6 million on top of that as well.

On top of the initial commitments of $2 million to CORE and IFRC, will also commit $1 million over the next two years to cover stays for IFRC staff and volunteers. CORE says that it’ll use the contribution to fund stays for COVID-19 workers who need to administer tests, conduct contact tracing, provide flu shots, coordinate quarantine support and those traveling to vaccine distribution centers. 

According to Airbnb, hosts who support in this way will receive a special badge on their profile as a way to recognize their good deed.
