I didn’t suggest we should ‘sell charity’ That would be repugnant.
Unlike you I am not suspect of worthy causes as I have dedicated my career to working in them.
I didn’t say anywhere that this should be used as a tactic to market your listing to a guest.
I am suggesting a mechanism whereby we can use the power of Airbnb to raise awareness of local causes in areas guests are visiting.
And whereby hosts and management companies and guests can donate a percentage of their earnings to the chosen cause.
Can you imagine what sort of support could given to address homelessness issues globally for example if every host and management company gave 1% of their earnings to support homeless issues. We could build hostels, build halfway housing, provide mental health support, set up feeding programmes etc.
