As Paris, France reacts to multiple terrorist attacks on Friday night, the people of the city are coming together by opening their doors to strangers.

Using the hashtag #PorteOuverte, which means "open door," Parisians are offering their homes as shelter to those who need a safe place to sleep. Due to the attacks, certain subway lines have been disrupted meaning some people may not be able to get home.
