What is a Time Exchange?

hOurworld Knows

Time is an alternative currency.

hOurworld.org provides time banking software free for local communities and has over
44,800 members and more than 700 communities trading time instead of cash for needed services.

Their motto: neighbors helping neighbors.

Members share their talents and services, record their hours, then 'spend' them later on services they want and everyone's hours are equal. This is distinctly different from barter in that the exchanges are tracked in the time banking softeare and you can spend your banked hours ion any needed service. Time is a form of local community currency based on trusted relationships. To date hOurworld has logged over 2,280,000 hours of service received.
