Imagine if you could bank your time! And imagine if later you could withdraw your time with interest! We learn about an exciting and simple community concept growing across America called Timebanks. Our guests show us the value and how to organize a Timebank in our own community.
Everyone has something to offer. Every skill, talent, and interest has value in a Timebank. When you donate an hour sewing buttons, you can call on someone else to rake your leaves. Give an hour reading stories, get an hour having your curtains hung. Neighbor helping neighbor is a simply powerful concept that is changing our aging towns into caring communities.
"You'll find this concept intriguing," says host Gregory Bator, "our guests are passionate about how all of us can ready our own communities in simple economical ways. This is a smile good program." Graceful Aging is pleased to share a movement that is changing America neighborhood by neighborhood. Would you like yours to be next? Find out how in this episode.
