Teacher Appreciation Week

Have You Appreciated a Teacher This Week?

We all have that one incredible teacher that made a big impact. Maybe it was the philosophy prof that opened your mind during your freshman year or the high school English instructor that made Shakespeare come alive. Maybe it was your daughter’s first preschool teacher. For Leah, it was Sarah Sabatini, her high school math teacher. Delivering a little love to the educators in your life is as easy as 1, 2, 3: 1. Think about a teacher in your life that’s making a big impact every day. 2. Choose something that would make her smile, like an awesome succulent plant, a box of snickerdoodles, or classroom art supplies. 3. Post a delivery task.

TaskRabbit Helps PopSugar Make Mondays (and Tuesdays) Sweeter

Okay, confession time. The ladies of the TaskRabbit office are a wee bit obsessed with POPSUGAR Must Have. To be honest, so are a few of our dudes. A monthly box full of a surprising variety of awesome (and full size) products for only 35 bucks? Sign us up. TaskRabbits in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York were tickled pink (seriously, right down to their sneakers) this week to help spread the word about Must Have. Outfitted in crisp white shirts and hot pink bow-ties and Converse sneakers, these TaskRabbits Must Have boxes and luxury gifts to select members in each city. They even passed out cupcakes to the office mates of each recipient. Now that’s how you make Mondays (and Tuesdays) sweeter.

Task of the Week: Cheer Up My Friend

Sometimes you just have a bad week. And sometimes you have a really, really bad week. That’s the kind of week a friend of Seattle TaskPoster Gayle M. was having, so Gayle decided to do something about it. She hired a TaskRabbit to cheer up her friend by delivering a surprise bottle of wine. Trish C. picked out a great bottle, dressed it up with a gift bag and card, and delivered it to Gayle’s buddy. Do you have a pal that’s going through a rough spot? Post a Task now to send that person a little cheer. We suggest cupcakes, chocolate, wine, or your friend’s favorite comfort food. Hey, that’s what friends are for.

Carpe Diem: Seizing Graduation Day

Is someone special in your life finally walking the stage? Maybe it’s the end of high school, maybe it’s the milestone of finishing college, or maybe it’s your littlest one’s preschool graduation. It doesn’t matter who’s about to get the diploma — what matters is how you choose to celebrate. You won’t be surprised to know that we think TaskRabbit is one of the best tools to help plan the perfect graduation day. Here are some of our favorite ways to use TaskRabbits to celebrate: Party Down You go to the graduation ceremony, TaskRabbits handle the party. You can post Tasks for cake pick-up, party decorations, and even for someone friendly to man the grill. Gift Shopping + Delivery TaskRabbits can deliver flowers, champagne, or other gifts to the grad in your life — even if they live in a different city. An awesome solution for that little sister who finally finished her BFA in New York. Plan a Trip There’s nothing like the tradition of taking a life-changing trip after graduation from high school …

Task of the Week: Show My Mom Some Love

You know who’s awesome? Your mom. Moms are superheroes that shape our lives, nurture our dreams, and make possible all that we accomplish. Yet when it comes to Mother’s Day, many of us still rely on generic greeting cards or overpriced, impersonal flower deliveries to say “Thank you.” As we traded stories about the amazing moms in our lives around TaskRabbit HQ today, we realized the solution to dishing out an amazing Mother’s Day has been right under our noses this whole time: Why not hire TaskRabbits? Not only can TaskRabbits pick out local flowers for your mom (at a way cheaper price than ordering online), they can help you make this Mother’s Day the most memorable one yet by building a totally unique and personal experience. Here’s what some of us on the TaskRabbit team plan to hire TaskRabbits for this Mother’s Day: “It’s hard living nearly 3000 miles away from your family (I live in SF and my family lives right outside NYC), particularly around holidays. As much as I want to celebrate …
