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

Be valued and appreciated within a large community
