Over TEN THOUSAND hours West Seattle
Timebankers have exchanged in serving both individual and organizational members.
We are literally one of the most active timebanks in the world!
(#4 as of February.) So many awesome members. Here are a few "shout outs" from members to other members for much appreciated exchanges.
"A big shout out to Timebank member and my neighbor, Meg, for shoveling our sidewalk and stairs during Seattle's big "Snowpocolyse" snowfall of February 2019. Plus she did the sidewalk in front of the house next door. It was a real gift to us!"
- Grateful neighbor Tamsen
Hannah & Julie helped Elizabeth fix her faucet
Elizabeth says how grateful she is to Timebankers Hannah and Julie. They took even more time checking every detail than a paid plumber would plus now I have two fantastic new friends!
Appreciative Timebanker Elizabeth
Timebankers build resilient community!
A HUGE thank you to Julie and Hannah for hosting 2 exceptional parties in December and January which energized Timebank and has snowballed into amazing results already.
Hannah and Julie are terrific organizers and motivators. They create just the right ambiance to build friendships between neighbors.
Below are Hannah and Julie in their kitchen making delicious dishes for the Timebank party.
Notice how energized Hannah is! She's just a blur of community spirit! Julie is in the background, planning and manifesting neighborhood spirit and interconnection for the Greater West Seattle Peninsula.
Below, check out how thoughtful our hostesses are in labeling all the dishes to accommodate everyone with allergies or dietary concerns. We have delicious gluten and meat-free options. How thoughtful!
Below, check out our amazing Timebankers in action. Creative and practical folks generating even more fun ways to build community. Notice the active listening. Timebanking attracts cooperative, pro-active folks who care about their neighbors and love to contribute their talents. We can get so much more done with such resilient community spirit!
Below, more happy Timebankers enjoying our spaghetti dinner & lively conversation. I'm really impressed with the quality of people in our group. It's so nice to get off-line and partake in lively community in synergy with local community groups and individuals. Lots of folks in Timebank are contributing HUNDREDS of hours in local nonprofits and now can enjoy using their credit hours to meet more neighbors.
Lovely Elizabeth, on the left, wants to shout out her thanks to Julie and Hannah for fixing her faucet! More photos and details on that to come...
Below, Timebank Board Member Julie, at our December Party Meeting. To reward the most active Timebankers she and Hannah hosted a party. Everybody brought delicious homemade soups in Tupperware to trade with neighbors. Contributors got to choose from the many gourmet soups. Now we have deluxe homemade options on demand from the convenience of our freezer. Souper idea, Julie!
