Take the Two-Month Time Trade Challenge!
Hello Time Trade Community!
We know you love the Brattleboro Time Trade! You love the potlucks! You come out for the annual meeting. You volunteer to bake for the annual I-91 Coffee Break fundraiser. We LOVE to see you at these events!
So here’s a question: When was the last time you had a time trade exchange with someone?
Getting to know our neighbors by exchanging skills and services with them is the very heart of our organization; it’s how we build and strengthen our community. So, we’re setting this two-month challenge to you. During the months of August and September, we challenge every time trade member to commit to responding to at least one time trade request per month. One for August, one for September.
As a board member, who attends meetings, and works monthly on this newsletter, and who is working on the grant writing team, I rack up tons of time trade hours. Mostly, I forget to log them, but if I did log them, I’d never have to do an exchange with another member of the time trade. But, I realize that doing trades is the whole reason this organization exists! And so, I am committing to this challenge myself; from now on, I’m going to attempt to respond to at least one time trade request per month for as long as I’m in the organization. I encourage you to do the same!! And when you do, let me know how it went! I’ll put your exchange stories into the newsletter!
