Airbnb and Hosts Transform Lives

Share Your Home with Wish Families: Give Back by Hosting

Open Homes hosts are invaluable in ensuring every child who wishes to go on a trip has a comfortable place to stay. As an Open Homes host, you can show your generosity by temporarily offering your space for free to wish families during their trip. We hope you’ll join this community of generous hosts today.

Make-A-Wish® partners with Airbnb's Open Homes program to provide housing for wish families who travel around the world for their life-changing wish trips. Together, Airbnb and their generous host community have given accommodation to thousands of wish kids and their families since 2017. 

For a child with a critical illness and their family, a wish trip is a much-needed escape from the unimaginable reality of battling a critical illness. Wish trips give these children and their families a chance to reconnect and create joyful memories that will last forever. Many families return from their wish trips feeling stronger and more hopeful. Airbnb’s Open Homes program is crucial to these experiences, because a temporary home gives a wish family a space to be authentically themselves during much-deserved respite.
