Join a community based on mutual support, in which time is the currency

Expand your support line by trading time

Get your time's worth

A TimeBank is an exchange platform that allows people to organize their time around a purpose and use it as currency.

Theoretically, you can trade a service for any other offered within the community. Also, exchanging time promotes self-growth and gives value to the time spent on working towards a reward -with the bonus of doing it in a fun, casual, no pressure way- so people achieve their goals and bring out the best in themselves.

Carry transactions with social capital

TimeBanks are based
on 5 fundamental ideals:

We all have something to give

We all have something to give

We all have something to give

We all have something to give

We all have something to give

“People get joy and strength by being able to help others and, while doing it, they increase their confidence and self esteem”

Luis Gallardo
