When is the last time you used extra money to pay for something special? Maybe it was a fun family vacation. Or a new car. Or a surprise gift for a friend. While many Taskers are on TaskRabbit to earn extra money for a rainy day, others use TaskRabbit tasks as their primary source of income. While there are countless ways to spend (or save!) the money you earn on TaskRabbit, it’s up to you to decide how to use it!.
We’re always curious to learn more about Taskers, so we decided to ask: What’s the best thing that you’ve done with your earnings from TaskRabbit?
The answers paint an amazing picture of the Taskers on our platform—and showed us just how adventurous and compassionate you are. We wanted to share with you some of the standout stories so that you can be as proud of the TaskRabbit community as we are.
“TaskRabbit allowed me to help pull my fiancé, my dog, and myself out of a tragic situation. Last October, I lost my home and job during the California wildfires. I had no idea what to do, because everything we had was gone. If it wasn’t for TaskRabbit, I would have never been able to get out of our unexpected homeless situation. It helped me stay motivated and recover until I was able to get both a new full-time job and an ideal house. My mom showed the platform to me, and while I was skeptical at first, it started a revolution in my mind about new ways to utilize skills I never really thought I had. And I still task for extra money even though we’ve recovered.” – James L., Sacramento
“I am originally from Senegal in West Africa and more than 50% of my 2017 earnings helped kids in my old neighborhood and hometown go through high school—and some of them graduated this year. What a great feeling!” – Alphonse M.”, LA & OC
“We have been able to pay down some debt and save for our family trip to the Azores, Portugal. I was born and raised there and have not been back for over 30 years. I am very excited to finally be able to take this trip and show my family where I was raised.” Daciel D., San Francisco
“I’m an actor and singer, so my line of work isn’t always consistent. TaskRabbit helps me fill in the gaps when my performance life is slow!” – Erin C., Chicago
“Pay for everyday expenses! San Francisco is crazy expensive in terms of rent. My income gives my family a little wiggle room to indulge in non-essentials like dinners out or after-school activities for my kids.” – Savannah B., San Francisco
We’re proud of this growing network of Taskers who give Clients amazing service through our platform, and we love hearing all the different ways they’ve used their earnings from TaskRabbit to make their communities a better place.
