How TaskRabbit Helped Dragonfly Cakes Handle the Holiday Rush

Soon, the orange and black cellophane-packed aisles of your local drugstore will be replaced by the red, green, and glittery gold of another holiday shopping season. Shoppers from around the country will begin seeking out the perfect gifts for the special people in their lives, and small businesses in New York and LA, Chicago and San Francisco, Seattle and Austin, will face their busiest months of the year. That’s exactly the situation Dragonfly Cakes found themselves in last holiday season. The Sausalito bakery, which specializes in petits fours, faced a massive rush that required bringing in extra hands. That’s when TaskRabbits swooped in to save the day. Working with TaskRabbits meant Dragonfly didn’t have to spend time searching for the right people — there were many friendly, reliable, and pastry-loving TaskRabbits available.

How TaskRabbit Helped Amy D. Help Others

When Amy D. walks to work from her home in San Francisco’s Union Square, she inevitably has to pass through the Tenderloin, one of the city’s toughest neighborhoods. In addition to a high crime rate, the Tenderloin contains a particularly large homeless population — nearly 6,000 homeless people pass through it each day. Amy wanted to help these people in whatever small way she could, so she decided to begin making wrap sandwiches and passing them out. The only problem? It was hard to feel safe in such a tough area. Amy didn’t want to stop helping out, so she decided to hire a TaskRabbit to accompany her on her food delivery journeys through the Tenderloin. Having a TaskRabbit with her made her feel comfortable enough to travel even deeper into the neighborhood and help feed the people who needed it the most.

Introducing TaskRabbit Tales

We’re proud to present the very first installment of TaskRabbit Tales, a new series designed to showcase some of the best stories in the TaskRabbit universe. Our first episode is about how becoming a TaskRabbit helped one Austin, Texas woman get her life back. Jennifer G. has spent the last few years recovering from a devastating car accident. Her injuries took away everything she knew about her life  — her career, her memory, her ability to understand the world around her — and helping people through TaskRabbit gave it back to her. “This was the first firm footing that I had after the accident to know that I could get back out there and help people,” Jennifer told us. Watch the video for more of her story. If you’re a TaskPoster or TaskRabbit with an amazing story, you could be featured on the next TaskRabbit Tales. Give us a shout at tales@taskrabbit.com.
