Time Banks – spreading the community service love, one hour at a time…

Timebanks

Time Banks is a community site which is part of the international ‘social change movement’.  The idea is to help people exchange their community work with others so as to build up a network of committed volunteers doing good stuff everywhere.

 For every hour you spend doing something for someone in your community, you earn one Time Dollar. Then you have a Time Dollar to spend on having someone do something for you. It’s that simple. Yet it also has profound effects. Time Banks change neighborhoods and whole communities. Time Banking is a social change movement in 22 countries and six continents.
