The task required a very specific procedure: Go to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on a Monday evening, purchase a game ticket, receive the promotional gift, and then mail it all the way to Washington, D.C.
For Betsy in D.C. this wasn’t just about baseball collectibles, this was about trying to ease the recovery of a partner undergoing surgery. Betsy’s partner is a lifelong Dodgers fan, and the two of them were planning a trip to Los Angeles for the weekend to see a game. However, when the surgery became more urgent, they had to cancel the trip.
Hoping to surprise her partner when she returned home from the hospital, Betsy was determined to acquire the Dodgers’ promotional items, which included a Tommy Lasorda garden gnome. That’s when she reached out to TaskRabbit for help and pure magic happened. It turned out that Tasker DaVette had been meaning to take her eighty-eight year old mother to see her first baseball game, and that the friends she was planning on attending with always get there early — just in time to comfortably pick up the promotional gifts for Betsy and her partner.
It was meant to be. We can only imagine the look of delight on Betsy’s partner’s face when she received the surprise.
Here’s wishing you and your partner all the best, Betsy.
If you need to pull a rabbit out of your hat, you know who to get in touch with.
