Results Information

Program Name: USA for UNHCR
Problem

The world now has the highest levels of displacement recorded, totaling 65.3 million people worldwide with 21.8 million refugees. 40.8 million people have also been forced to flee and find refuge elsewhere within their countries. Every day, 34,000 people are forcibly displaced due to conflict and persecution.The humanitarian refugee crisis continues to grow and demands more funding to meet needs.

Strategy

USA for UNHCR and Airbnb both leveraged their network of supporters, donors & partners, and guests & hosts, respectively, in addition to reaching out to the general public for this campaign. By tapping into their respective networks of supporters and clients, they are able to maximize donations and its matching component within an audience that is pre-disposed to supporting humanitarian causes and/or are already strong financial supporters and advocates.

IF:THEN

IF USA for UNHCR and its partners, such as Airbnb, are able to successfully raise awareness and funding through projects such as the “Belong Anywhere” campaign for refugees...

THEN Refugees receive additional funding of at least $1 Million to support humanitarian efforts in providing core relief items such food, shelter, medicine and protection services. This saves lives, provides stability, and allows them to rebuild lives.
