It was the last month of summer, it has one entire day dedicated to love and it’s also the shortest month of the year. However here at Airtasker, February was the biggest month not only of the year but EVER. With more tasks posted than ever before and it’s no surprise that Airtasker played a massive role in playing cupid with loads of Valentines Day tasks posted. We’ve taken our pick of the bunch to share with you all.
Here’s our fave tasks from February…
1. Buy carton of Messina
Need someone awesome to go buy and pick up a carton of icecream from either Surry Hills Messina or Darlinghurst Messina ( i think you get to pick three or four flavours – definitely salted caramel and white chocolate, two of the specials on the board, and one sorbet- the choice is yours! maybe coconut and lychee) and deliver it to my boyfriend who will be in the CBD around 3pm. Exact location will be texted to you if you put your hand up for the job. I’m working 12-6 during the day tomorrow so i can’t do it. 🙁 THANK YOU KINDLY AWESOME PERSON.
