In times of uncertainty, remember these words.

This message is the first thing Couchsurfing employees see as they walk into work: it constantly reminds us of the value of diversity, the importance of building a global community, and why Couchsurfing exists.

Couchsurfing is about sharing your life, your experiences, your journey, and your home. In times of uncertainty and division, we take our commitment to connecting the world more seriously than ever. We urge you to do the same.

Remember, you do have an impact: your spirit of generosity has the power to profoundly change the world. If you are looking for ways to help, we believe that the best method is inclusion and a willingness to listen. Welcome a jetlagged stranger into your home. Invite travelers to share a holiday or family dinner. Learn about other cultures by making it a point to reach out to people who are different from you. When we open our doors, we build bridges to connect the world and start to tear down the walls that divide us.

And to the Couchsurfing community that lives and breathes generosity and tolerance – we’ve never been more proud to work for you. Thank you for sharing your lives and homes with strangers from every corner of the world. Thank you for helping to show others the value of doing the same.

Thank you for helping the world become a better place.
