nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information
Greetings, everybody. In the wake of the hurricane, I feel there is a great opportunity to help bring together those in our community. One such tool for fostering community growth is SHARE Haven. SHARE Haven is The Greater New Haven area's Time Bank. With time banking, people offer their services and skills to one another, recording their time to be used as a currency with others in the network. With so many people without power and/or internet at the moment, it makes for some interesting challenges and opportunities for the network. If you currently have internet, I suggest signing up at http://community.timebanks.org/index.php and posting some offers and requests for yourself, and neighbors without internet, to your profile. Additionally, if internet is inconvenient at the moment, please call me, Adam Wascholl, at 860-216-7291 and I'll do my best to match you up with somebody complementing your offer/request. In addition to the SHARE Haven site, you can sign up for the Google Group (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/sharehaven) which will also be used to help connect people. Hopefully, we'll be able to learn a thing or two from this situation, and help strengthen the tools used to connect one another.
