We the People of the Earth-

Roanoke Valley Time Exchange

A service exchange or time bank is a network of individual, organizational and business 'members' that provide services, track and bank their hours and then spend those hours to get their own needs met. A service exchange is NOT a barter network, since nothing is 'exchanged'. One 'member' provides a friendly, neighborly favor to another and records the time they spent doing so.

This is a way to create equality in our community and bring us all to the same level. An hour is an hour to every one, let us value that hour and the service rendered above what society has decided it is worth.

It is time for us to come together as a people who cares and values the individuality, creativity, effort, and most of all time of each individual regardless of social or financial status, race or ethnicity, ability, disability, sexual orientation, or gender. We are all People of the Earth so let us learn and grow together as the community we are meant to be.

Many Blessings,

Roanoke Valley Time Exchange Team
