Better Than A Coffee Mug: Task Ideas for Dad this Father’s Day

Forget the super generic gifts this year. We’re all about showing dad how much he means to you – but rather than reward his hard work with some socks or a tie (or the omnipresent coffee mug) – we’re pretty sure that quality time and really thoughtful gestures will win out every time. After all, our concept of #LifeAfterChores is about making time for memories and moments that will stick with you.  While cleaning and organizing can definitely elicit a palpable sense of accomplishment sometimes, chances are that scrubbing your toilet on your hands and knees won’t be the thing you’ll look back on fondly years down the road. But – carving out valuable hours to launch that side business you’ve been dreaming about, or spending some time with your dad while he reminisces, telling those stories you’ll remember when you get older – those are the things we’ll look back on, glad that we made the time. For Father’s Day this year, it’s all about giving dad that time to enjoy his special day. Let him go crazy doing whatever makes him …

#ATinyTask Recap: Building A Tiny Home in the Middle of NYC

Recently, TaskRabbit challenged a group of 10 Taskers to build a Tiny House in the middle of Manhattan in just 72 hours – all for a good cause. Building a fully outfitted tiny house in 3 days was a tall order – a build like this often takes months – but we set out to prove the power of collaboration, showing the kind of progress that can be made when people come together, bringing their best insights, skills and creativity to achieve something that seems impossible. It was quite a week. New York was wonderful (and quite lovely, despite a bit of rain), our Taskers were incredible, and TaskRabbit’s Tiny House came together in record time, due to the planning, dedication and hard work of all involved. A Symbol for Change The TaskRabbit Tiny House was auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to our partner, Community Solutions, a national nonprofit helping communities take on complex social challenges – issues like homelessness, unemployment and health inequity – through collaboration and creative problem solving. This Tiny House was envisioned as a …

Tiny House Day 1: Behind the Scenes

An immensely satisfying Day 1 of the Tiny House build is in the books. Our Taskers only have 3 days to make this magic happen, and they took the challenge in stride, getting right to work bright and early on Monday morning in a deserted Chelsea Triangle. We have amazing Taskers working on #ATinyTask, and the level of teamwork is incredibly inspiring to see as the house takes shape: Our build site went from this: …to this: (in almost no time!)
