Share time, not money - build community - thrive together!
Timebanking is a way of giving and receiving services to build strong support networks. Services are exchanged using time instead of money. Equality is at the heart of all we do. An hour is an hour, regardless of the service.

Selected Exchange Stories
I attended the timebank's Kitchen Swap in April and found a set of napkins and placemats from World Market. I grabbed them, thinking they looked like the same size as my outdoor pillows which have faded from the sun. I put the Request on hOurworld to have someone re-cover my pillows with this new fabric. Connie answered my request. She sized them exactly, and they were much nicer than they would have been if I had done them myself. In fact, one of her friends saw them and tried to buy them from her! I'm so happy with my "new" pillows, and I love that I got to upcycle items from the Kitchen Swap. -- Kathy J., 6/27/17
