Dawn Bowles-DreamBank

Beth,

Thanks so much for this post and mentioning DreamBank. It's been a couple of years in the works so we are pretty excited about finally being out there for our first Christmas season!

Also, I was really interested to see your post starting with info on "Gift Economy", something I stumbled on in researching a paper I was writing awhile back.Another movement I came across that I consider in the same realm of Gift economy is www.timebanks.org.

"For every hour you spend doing something for someone in your community, you earn one Time Dollar. Then you have a Time Dollar to spend on having someone do something for you. It's that simple. Yet it also has profound effects. Time Banks change neighborhoods and whole communities. Time Banking is a social change movement in 22 countries and six continents."

There are all kinds of TimeBanks you can start in communities, schools, etc. It's really inspiring stuff. Apologies if this is old news and it's been written about here 12 times already but it just jumped into my head so I thought I'd mention it. Again thanks. Dawn

Beth, thank you so much for highlighting my half marathon for Team Diabetes, as well as your support. I really appreciate it... I'm in the home stretch with $1500 more to raise before December 2nd.

Hugs...
