JP Time Exchange Launches

In a Time Exchange, members share skills and provide services for each other in exchange for time. These services range from, but are not limited to cooking, gardening, carpentry, pet care, and much more. When you provide an hour of service, you are credited with one “Time Hour” in your online account. You can use that Hour for services you need or want, that other members are offering.
