Beds for a Cause


Beds for a Cause is a project of the Rotary Club of Cheshire, Connecticut

A supporter of a nonprofit or community organization would offer accommodations in the home by signing up as a host on a vacation rental website such as Airbnb or HomeAway. A portion of the funds paid to the host would be donated to that organization.

Go to Airbnb, HomeAway or another vacation rental website to sign up to be a host. In the description box of your listing please write:
The hosts are participants in the Beds for a Cause fundraiser. They will send a check to a local nonprofit or community organization for a portion of the proceeds from your lodging. For more information, look for Beds for a Cause using your search engine.
