In talking with her I discovered that Elaine painted — not landscapes or portraits but beautiful pysanky eggs. And while Elaine brought out her beautiful hand painted eggs to show me, she also showered me with goodies to munch on. It turned out she was a fabulous baker as well! Elaine was essential in her community — she was able to complete all the baking for another member's wedding all on time credits. It just took the realization that she had the capacity to give to make it possible. She also held baking classes in her kitchen teaching members how to make kiffels. Unfortunately, Elaine has since passed away — but she did not pass away alone. She was surrounded by TimeBank members, who — through the process of TimeBanking — had become her friends and her family. And she continued the cycle of giving by leaving behind a painted egg for each person who had come into her life and meant something to her." - Kathy Perlow, Community Exchange, Pennsylvania . #timebankingis #community #50storiesin50days #timebanks #story #timeasmoney #life http://ow.ly/lNZF309xgcw</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="2017-03-05T18:23:16+00:00">Mar 5, 2017 at 10:23am PST</time></p></div></blockquote><!-- [et_pb_line_break_holder] --><script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>
