Penn Timebank's Circle of Reciprocity

cropped-tb-banner-screenshot-2013-03-10-at-1-58-48-pm


A newly formed group called Penn Timebank has a cool way of incentivizing you to help someone out. The idea is simple: it acts as an alternative currency where you give time to get time. So every hour you volunteer, you earn an hour of someone else's time in the network.

Penn Timebank was recently granted $1,000 by Kelly Writer's House and is hosting "an exchange afternoon" this Saturday. Drop by to learn how to make mochi and dumplings, dance, play guitar or ukelele, and more. You might just have a shot at being the next ukulele sensation after this guy (which is just as likely as you still having a perfect bracket).
