By hosting for Airbnb I have referred several hundreds of people to local restaurants, shopping centers, movie theaters, museums, cultural events and beautiful sites in my area of the country. There is a sense of community as people flow through the Airbnb system that brings our country back to some grass roots of sharing our stories and lives together. It reestablishes trust and friendship in our society.
