Welcome to the West Seattle Timebank
We just launched last summer, and we're among the newest of some 300 Timebanks in the country. Our next meeting is Feb 26th, see the activities listing. Bring a dish to share at the potluck & even bring a friend.
What Timebanks everywhere have in common is this: we're local, we're Internet-based, and our members can list skills or services they want to exchange without money changing hands. You get the things you need -- house repair, yard work, child care, dog walking, haircuts, piano lessons, etc -- directly from other members. And time is the currency. So for every hour you give, the time is credited to your online "account" to be redeemed for another member's skill or service.
Timebank is a system that has been working well for more than 30 years!
Do you have some spare time on your hands? Do you have some small jobs that need doing? Do you want to get involved, keep busy, help others? The new West Seattle Timebank could be just what you're looking for.
By joining, you not only widen your circle, you help build a network of neighbors who are ready to take care of each other. Bottom line, it's good to know you're not alone, and there are people who will help you ... and to whom you can return the favor. And now West Seattle Timebank is part of the new Timebanks of Puget Sound (ToPS), which means you can exchange services with members in other neighborhoods.
