I am looking to form a time bank system in order to pay down our student debt. This will begin as an online representation of the unpaid work we do through internships, volunteer jobs, and work that is not usually defined as work (i.e. baking cookies for your neighbors). What will begin as a conceptual project will evolve into something more groundbreaking where Sallie Mae and the federal government may start to see value in our work and accept our time as a form of currency to relieve our debt.
What I need:
- A group of collaborators
- A someone who knows how to build an open platform website like this one
- Help with publicity
- Help contacting organizations/businesses that would be willing to give "timedebt" credits to their unpaid workers
- Help figuring out how to get our creditors to accept these time credit payments as debt payments
