The L/A (Lewiston/Auburn) Time Bank

The L/A time bank is a wonderful gift to the Lewiston/Auburn community. How does it work? "Time Dollars are a type of community currency that anyone can earn by using their time, energy, skills, and talents to help others. One hour of service provided to another human being or to the community earns one Time Dollar. You can spend your Time Dollars on any number of services." To join or to learn more about the program, call 207-782-5783, ext. 1607.



You can also pay a visit to The Hour Exchange in Portland to learn more about Time Dollar programs in general

Jct: Best of all, when the local currency is pegged to the Time Standard of Money (how many dollars/hour child labor) Hours earned locally can be intertraded with other timebanks globally!
In 1999, I paid for 39/40 nights in Europe with an IOU for a night back in Canada worth 5 Hours.
U.N. Millennium Declaration UNILETS Resolution C6 to governments is for a time-based currency to restructure the global financial architecture.
