Explaining Time Banking


     

       Time Banking turns time into money.  We all have needs and gifts to share! A Time dollar is a new kind of money based solely on time. You earn one Time dollar for each hour that you spend providing a service to another member. That one hour of service means one hour of credit toward purchasing a needed service from someone in your Timebank - the Time Exchange of Door County. You can buy an hour of a particular service, save hours, donate them to another person, or donate them back to the 'bank' so that all members have assistance at a difficult time.

       Time Banking means that we reward and value many types of work. It will allow, encourage and mentor everyone who lives in our county, to the realization that we can meet each other's needs without monetary exchange - we ALL are partners in our community, WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO CONTRIBUTE!
