Here’s How We’re Celebrating MLK Day — Will You Join Us?

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired us to look beyond ourselves and consider the impact we can have on others.

Spring cleaning is simply really intimidating. Scrubbing your home from top to bottom, bestowing order upon a cluttered garage, and weeding a garden overgrown after months of frost — that’s a whole lot to take on, even if it is just once a year. The spring cleaning tradition is rooted in multiple cultures around the world — one of our favorites is its role in ushering in the Persian New Year, when it’s called “shaking the house.” Well sometimes you just can’t shake it alone. Maybe that’s why TaskPosters around the country are outsourcing their spring cleaning to-do lists to TaskRabbits. …
