Airbnb’s $10M OMG! Fund to Finance the World’s Craziest and Most Unique Ideas

YourUpdateTV

From a UFO house to a giant potato hotel, the growing trend of flexible living encourages travelers to seek out more unexpected places to stay. This demand has created new opportunities for creative hosts with awe-inspiring spaces to share – and now, Airbnb is helping those with an out-of-this-world idea to bring their vision to life with a $10M fund. Recently, Kristie Wolfe, host of the Big Idaho Potato Hotel and member of the OMG! Fund judging panel, conducted a satellite media tour to talk about the OMG! Fund and her experience being an Airbnb host. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/XPKfKgzbCuk The first-of-its-size OMG! Fund is seeking original and offbeat ideas from existing and aspiring designers, architects, DIYers and makers from around the globe. The fund's $10 million will finance 100 of the craziest and most unique property ideas, giving 100 people the chance to turn them into actual Airbnb OMG! Category listings, which are Airbnb’s collection of one-of-a-kind, offbeat homes. Starting June 22nd, 2022, anyone with an out-of-this world idea for an OMG! Category listing can submit an application at airbnb.com/omgfund. One hundred people with the 100 craziest ideas will receive a grant of $100,000* each to make their fantastical creations possible and, ultimately, bookable. Ideas will be judged for their uniqueness, creativity, feasibility, sustainability and how immersive an experience they might provide for guests. The fund is shaped in part by the growing trend of flexible living that has emerged in the past two years. As part of this shift, Airbnb guests are craving more unexpected spaces that become the destinations themselves, and Airbnb Categories, which launched last month, provide a new way to search for these spaces. Over 30,000 unique listings across the world were added to Airbnb in 2021 and the OMG! Category showcases the craziest amongst them, making it easy for guests to discover these listings in places they wouldn't have otherwise looked. Additionally, Hosts of unique listings saw a 138 percent increase in worldwide earnings from 2019 to 2021, with nights booked at unique properties increasing globally by over 45 percent in the same two-year timespan. Applications for the OMG! Fund open today for a period of 30 days, through July 22 at 11:59 pm ET. The 100 grant recipients will be selected by the panel over the coming months, with the intent of having several newly-constructed spaces available for booking next year. To find out more about the OMG! Fund and how to apply go to airbnb.com/omgfund About Kristie Wolfe Kristie is a proud Idahoan who is passionate about living simply. In the winter of 2013, she fulfilled a lifelong dream of building her very own treehouse in Hawaii and sharing it with travelers from around the world. From the success of that unique stay, she has since been able to build a hobbit hole, refurbish a fire lookout and, of course, has transformed an over a 6-ton spud into a space guests can sleep in!

‘Ready for Ron’ Releases Research Showing DeSantis Favorability Growing

Ready for Ron

Today, Ready for Ron, a draft committee encouraging Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, released research it commissioned from Impact Social showing growing support for Governor DeSantis. Impact Social analyzed the online and social media discussion in relation to Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump among swing voters from June 1 to June 14, 2022. It will repeat this analysis for the next several weeks to determine trends of candidate support. The summary of findings states in part: “…Ron DeSantis is not short of love and support among floating voters. Many are attracted by his straight talking and political clarity which appeals to rightish voters living in more left leaning states. They see a leader who gets things done. People inside and outside FL applaud how he has led the state through Covid 19 and support his policy positions on issues like guns, abortion and CRT… The news is positive amongst liberal detractors as well: “…Despite this love fest there are many fence sitters who loathe DeSantis, though it must be stressed that this mainly stems from the left. They see the governor as Trump in disguise. They feel strongly that FL is no longer a free state and has instead turned into DeSantis’ Land, an authoritarian country which is free only in the eyes of its leader. In evidence they speak of the Disney related ‘don’t say gay’ law, the withdrawal of funding to the Tampa Bay Rays - allegedly due to their views on gun control - and the supposed bullying of the Special Olympics to lift its vaccine mandate. All of which leads those who oppose DeSantis to mark him as ‘dangerous’, a threat to democracy and freedom of speech…” “This initial research supports what we are already seeing regarding growing support for Ron DeSantis. “While misguided and false attacks from the radical left increase, his support does too,” explained Ready for Ron legal counsel and spokeswoman Lilian Rodríguez-Baz. “The radical left is risking our future, and DeSantis has the courage to fight back, which is why they fear him so much.” “Our country must change course immediately,” Rodríguez-Baz continued. With the economy, inflation, crime, and erosion of the American way of life, we need confident, dependable, and proven leadership like only Ron DeSantis can deliver.” The online and social media analysis Impact Social shows more conversations taking place about DeSantis and the focus and content are trending positive. “Under President Donald Trump’s leadership, the United States enjoyed record unemployment, economic stability, safety, and global respect. Many are yearning for a return to these policies and the prosperity good leadership can bring,” Rodríguez-Baz said. “The era of President Trump was wonderful, but now, since he isn’t currently running, we must get ready for a new leader, we must be Ready for Ron.” The Committee continues its TV and online advertising to engage Americans to sign the petition at ReadyForRon.com to Draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. Impact Social is a specialist social media, online monitoring, and analysis company. Using big data software Impact Social tracks over 60 million online sites including Twitter, Facebook, all blogs, forums, and news websites. While ‘Ready for Ron’ is completely unaffiliated with the DeSantis campaign per federal regulations, it has taken the novel step of submitting a formal Advisory Opinion Request to the FEC seeking to share its growing supporter list with Governor DeSantis if the Draft succeeds and he announces his candidacy. ### Contact Details Ready for Ron Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 dan@readyforron.com Company Website https://www.readyforron.com/
