It should be a good thing that there are many ways to help the world and yet because there are so many ways, desensitization to such efforts is a common issue. So people who are trying to make a difference are getting creative -- take these refugee homes as the perfect example. London-based creatives Jason Scott and Joris Philippart recently listed them on Airbnb in order to raise money for relief.

Not only are funds raised, but also awareness of just how deplorable the refugee homes in Calais, France, are. Interestingly. Adweek writes, "We personally can't tell whether the amount of P.T. Barnum they've applied to this idea is just right or too much. Comfortable people must be hit where they live, but the long-term effects of encouraging pity for refugees, without controlling for paternal condescension, are ugly."
