Thank you for this opportunity to express my views about AiR BnB. I am a mother of two college students, I recently hosted my first Air BnB user here in Chicago at my home while my children where away at College. The extra income came in handy, I put it right into the college tuition savings fund, which I continuously add to each week. I work as a housekeeper. I was so pleased to be able to provide a place to rest for my guest was here to visit his son [REDACTED] I have used Air Bnb for years so I understand the respect and thanks, I personally feel as I have been a guest in several cities across the US and abroad. I have met so many wonderful people, who are welcoming and helpful. As it is my intention to be a helpful and welcoming hostess as well. Air BnB is a wonderful alternative to the high cost of hotels. and it provides a personal touch for the visitor in a new city or country. Air BnB give its users a sense of safety, and its great for the economy. I hope you will continue to support Air BnB Thank You Sheila Ashby Schultz Chicago, IL
