Campaign of the Week:
Airbnb helps visitors to New York City feel like they belong here, while simultaneously supporting Airbnb hosts and the communities where they live.
Why we like it:
A beautifully executed piece of content by the T Brand Studio that helped share information about Airbnb and educate on some of the original immigrants to NYC. One of our favourite pieces of native content this year.
