Grandma Pearl is having tea in her cozy kitchen, but something keeps distracting her. Can you help Grandma figure out what's happening? Maybe she isn't going Kaflooey!

What is Time Banking?
Time Banking is a medium of exchange. Like money. Except that it was purpose-built — designed in 1980 by Time Banking founder Edgar Cahn to reward "decency, caring, and a passion for justice.”
The idea is simple: I earn a time credit by doing something for you. It doesn’t matter what that "something” is. You turnaround and earn a time credit doing something for someone else. For example, an hour of gardening equals an hour of child-care equals an hour of dentistry equals an hour of home repair equals an hour of teaching someone to play chess.
Time Banking builds on the magic of "pay it forward,” one good turn leading to another and another and another. Through pay-it-forward, Time Banking joins unused resources in a community to needs that are not being met.
Time Banking encourages giving without measure and receiving with an open heart. People who jump in to the pay-it-forward exchanges that Time Banking encourages often report that the experience is life-altering. Their lives become transformed in ways they could not have begun to imagine.
Who can be involved in Time Banking?
Anyone can earn time credits by contributing to others.
Likewise, anyone who has earned time credits can spend them. Or they can pass on the time credits to others who may need them more.
