Why do you want to join the Orange County Time Bank? How did you hear about us?
i like to help people
Are you affiliated with any organizations in Orange County? If so, which ones?
Do you volunteer? Where? What do you do? Do you work a full or part-time job? Where? What do you do?
What services would you like to receive? What services do you and your family need from another time bank member? Are there things you would like to try out or learn?
What services could you provide? Think about what you like to do and what you do well. Details are helpful, for example, if you put down painting, is it painting a house, painting a picture or painting a room?
Think about something you enjoy doing and would love to do more of. That would be something you could offer to the OC Time Bank. Now think about something you don't enjoy doing, need help with doing, or would just rather someone else do for you. That is something you can request from other members in the time bank and pay the time hours you earn for someone to do that service for you.
As a part of the Orange County Time Bank you can help others while doing what you love. You earn a time hour or time dollar by providing your skill or service to a member. You can then redeem your hours from the “time bank” and use them for services of another member. Everyone’s service and time is equal. No matter what you have to offer an hour is an hour.
The website for the Orange County Time Bank (where you keep track of your hours earned and spent and can post OFFERs and REQUESTs) is www.octimebank.webs.com.
This group is open to all of those that live, work, or spend a great deal of time in Orange County, CA.
The purpose of this meetup group is to plan monthly gatherings where time bank members and potential time bank members can meet each other and find out more about the idea of time banking and how it works. Our goal is to find members who want to host these monthly gatherings in different parts of the county. We (the Organizers) will help you to plan, organize, and run these monthly gatherings for your city.
The Orange County Time Bank is a project of Catalyst Network of Communities (www.gocatalyst.org) , a 501c3 non-profit.
