Money is still coming in fast and furious to organizations that help those affected by Donald Trump’s travel ban. And a big chunk of change is coming from tech companies.
Airbnb, who already vowed to help with housing for stranded refugees and immigrants, is the latest to bring up the total amount of cash startups and tech companies are raising for immigrant and refugee advocacy organizations.
CEO Brian Chesky announced Thursday that the vacation rental startup was matching all donations up to $100,000 through the end of April. All money raised will go to the International Refugee Assistance Project, National Immigration Law Center and International Rescue Committee.
By Thursday evening, $7,258 had already been donated to the organizations through Airbnb’s Crowdrise site.
Twitter is also joining in on the mass donations to the ACLU to help provide legal resources for those detained at airports and kept out of the country. Employees at the microblogging site raised $530,000, while CEO Jack Dorsey and board of directors head Omid Kordestani matched that tally for a grand total of $1.59 million from Twitter to the nonprofit civil liberties advocacy group.
Keep that tech money flowing.
