The quality of the common good is shaped by the feelings of the individual. When citizens feel responsible for their neighborhood, they are willing to give back and help others in their community. To ensure a sustainable willingness of giving back to the community, givers need a feasible outcome for their “investment.” On the other hand, people in the community who may need help from others don’t want to feel guilty for receiving help. The matchmaking between offers and demands in a local community is not coordinated. Sometimes citizen wants to give where no help is needed and sometimes it is the opposite.
We are targeting local citizens who are open-minded and feel responsible for their neighborhood, who want to exchange knowledge, and who want to meet other citizens. We see this service well-matched to people who enjoy giving. Timebanks Frankfurt is based on the concept of timebanks.org. Timebanks USA was formed in 1995 by Dr. Edgar S. Cahn to expand the knowledge and field of time banking and its impact on individuals, youth, families, communities, the environment, and the world. It is an alternative currency. Users give one hour of service to another and receive one hour of time credit, which other members provide.
