"After Hurricane Sandy left over 100,000 of New York City residents temporarily homeless, Mayor Michael Bloomberg's office partnered with Airbnb, an online travel booking site, to match those needing temporary housing with others who had space to spare. This unique initiative provided New York residents wishing to help those affected by the disaster with an opportunity to contribute their already available spaces across the city."
