We raised $3,500 to help a family rebuild their lives after a devastating home fire through the power of baking sweets and man-on-the-street sales. But can we help a friend move across Anchorage?
We’ve slaved over ovens, sugar and flour. What about lifting with our legs?
‘Tasty Tweets’ volunteer, ‘Tweetup & House Concert’ art collector and all-around social maven @Mayor_of_Twtr is moving this weekend. She needs some help, just like we all do when moving time comes around. She’s already got a box truck from a friend and is madly packing even now. But when the day comes — Saturday, October 10 — she’ll need some help with those boxes and the furniture.
Remember the last time you moved? You and a couple friends did the job fairly quickly. But imagine how quickly you could move with 10 or even 15 people! It’d be over in a snap. And you’d still have plenty of time to get down to Humpy’s at 9:00 p.m. to celebrate @AKSiiri’s birthday.
Which job do you want?
Not every job requires big muscles. Some just require a smile. Or the ability to provide snacks. Or carry a simple box or two. Here are some of the jobs we need done during the move:
- break down, move, set up a bunk bed
- move a couple pieces of heavy-ish furniture
- move a variety of packed boxes
- cheer on the team / keep people’s spirits up
- take pictures or video for fun
- provide drinks, snacks — keep people fed and hydrated
