C/S Timebank Project - From each according t...o her/his ability to each according to her/his need.
- I will be initiating a Timebank for consumer/survivors in the New Year.
A timebank is based on an alternative currency - time. Timebanks bring people together and form a clearinghouse of skills and abilities that can be exchanged by the hour. People earn time dollars by contributing an hour of their time to someone and can use them to "purchase" a service. A service could be tutoring, help with tax returns, a walking buddy, a pet sitter, a hair cut, help with housework, a friendly visit. The possibilitie...s are limited to your imagination.
If you're interested in getting involved and learning more, please join the group. Membership is limited to folks who identify as consumers, survivors, mental patients, mad, crazy, lunatic, etc.
An information session will be held in the New Year, time and date to be determined.
if you know of people who may be interested, please share with your friends and networks.
