TimeBank founder to visit Wairarapa!

Professor Edgar Cahn

This is an amazing opportunity for people in Wairarapa to meet Prof Cahn.
TimeBanking is a way of giving and receiving to build supportive networks
and strong communities. One hour helping another earns one TimeBank Hour
TimeBanking builds on the magic of “pay it forward,” one good turn leading
to another and another.

Widely known as the father of timebanking, Professor Cahn is in NZ for The
Lyttelton Harbour Timebank's 10th birthday - which is celebrating the start of
Timebanking in NZ and making a special trip to the Wairarapa!

A self declared humanitarian from birth, Edgar Cahn has dedicated his life to fighting injustice and
poverty.   Timebanks are now found in more than 34 countries, with over 600 Timebanks
operating in the US and Britain alone.                                
When:  31 August 2015                                      Where: Frank Cody Lounge, Masterton Town Hall
Time:    10.00am to Midday                                Contact:  helend@contact.net.nz  
Wairarapa Timebank, supported by Masterton District Council, is delighted to  have the        
opportunity to share Edgar Cahns story locally.
