Airbnb is sending four users on a New York City shopping spree with none other than Carrie Bradshaw.
A listing on the home rental site to buy shoes and feed froyo with Sarah Jessica Parker sold out Monday morning. The four available spaces were first come, first served and cost $400 each. The money will go to the New York City Ballet, where Parker is a board member.
Called” Sole of the City with SJP ,” the experience situated for Oct. 6 will start at Bloomingdale’s where the Sex and the City starring will help find people their perfect pair of shoes. The New York City icon will then take people to a frozen yogurt store and send them with VIP seats to the NYC Ballet.
It may seem unusual that Airbnb is facilitating the celebrity meetup, but this is just the most recent stunt following last year’s release of “Trips,” a platform that offers unique “experiences” to travelers in cities worldwide. Experiences were first offered in simply 12 cities, but are now available in 40 markets, with New York City hosting 150 alone.
Other celebrity charity experiences include a golfing journey with former NFL star and media personality Michael Strahan for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and a journey to Brooklyn with actor/ vocalist Ansel Elgort to benefit Americares.
