I thought with my work and family commitments, there was no corner of my time free for providing services and with my busy life figuring out what I might use seemed like an additional chore. Now, I use the network often. I am grateful for a whole vast group of people whose skills and help I can draw on. I have had folks bake for me, made use of a truck and driver on a garden project, gotten help doing computer research and collaborated in the creation of a long musical playlist for a special event. My ability to consider solutions and brain storm responses to life’s challenges has increased because I have so many people I may be able to call on. And it turns out, my everyday work life is the place where I have benefited the most. Every week I unfold the laundry done for me by an ORE member, and when I travel to study an ORE secretary takes over the scheduling of my appointments for my massage business. In exchange I offer services in a way that fits my schedule and has become a delightful way to meet people I might never have known otherwise. ORE has made my life richer and easier and I am grateful to everyone who has worked to make it succeed.” - Rebecca Riley @ Onion River Exchange, Vermont http://ow.ly/B2Y630anmbW #timebankingis #community #50storiesin50days #timebanks #story #timeasmoney #worklife</a></p> <p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;">A post shared by TimeBanks USA (@timebanksusa) on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2017-04-02T12:19:35+00:00">Apr 2, 2017 at 5:19am PDT</time></p></div></blockquote><!-- [et_pb_line_break_holder] --><script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>
