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. As a nation, we honor his life and legacy in many ways — perhaps the most important of which is Martin Luther King Day. [pullthis]Most holidays were designed to give us time off, but this one demands we take it as “time on” to give back to our communities through action.[/pullthis][pullshow]

To celebrate Dr. King’s commitment to giving back, we’ll donate our service fee for all Donation Tasks posted between now and Tuesday to GLIDE. The San Francisco-based organization works tirelessly to bring about real change for people at the neighborhood level, and has served as a model for service organizations throughout the country. We’re very excited to show them our support. We hope you’ll consider donating items such as furniture, clothing, books, or household goods to organizations in your neighborhood. TaskRabbits can help organize, pack, and deliver all your donations. They can even go grocery shopping and deliver items to your local food bank. With every Donation Task you post, you’ll be helping GLIDE do even more great work. It’s like a double donation. It’s really never been easier to give back.

As another way to celebrate, we’ve commissioned this hand-illustrated wallpaper to celebrate one of Dr. King’s most memorable quotes. It’s our gift to you — please accept it as a beautiful reminder of the importance of giving back.
