TASK OF THE WEEK: HAND-WRITE THANK YOU CARDS (I JUST HAD A BABY!)

When you’re a new mom, you have a great appreciation for the small things: the little one’s smile, a quick nap, an instant of free time, an extra pair of hands. Shara M. recently gave birth to a baby girl and realized she needed a second pair of hands to help out with various tasks that were piling up. Reaching out to TaskRabbit, she knocked out several errands that would have otherwise taken precious time away from the baby. Tasker Diane wrote thank you cards, returned gifts for store credit, and filed paperwork for Shara, helping return her New York apartment to a manageable state. New moms take note: we can also help out with laundry, house-cleaning, deliveries and more. Still no progress on outsourcing your naps to us, though.

TASK OF THE WEEK: SURPRISE MY BRIDE WITH A VISIT FROM OUR DOGS

Dogs are a big part of the TaskRabbit family, so we totally understand the sweetness of this task. Getting married at a hotel miles away from home, Andrew wanted to surprise his bride-to-be with a visit from their dogs. Tasker Mona frequently handles pet-sitting tasks, but this one was unique. The dogs, staying in the backyard of the bride’s parents’ house on the wedding day, were picked up and delivered to the bride for a few minutes of attention before being whisked back to the yard. The bride was incredibly happy to snuggle with her beloved four-legged friends at such an emotional time, and the dogs got to be a small part of the big day. We wonder if this task was posted under “Delivery” or “Pet-sitting.” Congratulations Andrew!
