No Hunger Oak Park

 

  • Donate Hours doing what you love   
  • Eliminate hunger in Oak Park in 7 years
  • Build a thriving, nourished community

 

Welcome!  This group works to have no hunger in Oak Park in 7 years.  Please donate Hours to No Hunger Oak Park.  Spend the Hours doing what you love.  The Hours you credit to us in our TimeBank account will enable us to build a thriving, nourished community.


First step is to form a Leadership Council of 15 people.  Their task will be to add detail to the following plans, guide their implementation, and then to inspire people about their potential to make a difference. 

  • Year 1: enlist 60 people to donate 8 Hours.  This means 480 Hours would be credited to No Hunger Oak Park.
  • Year 2: 120 people donate 12 Hours.  1,440 Hours credited to No Hunger OP.  The pattern continues, each year doubling the number of donors and increasing by 50% their donations of Hours.
  • Year 7: 3,840 people donate 91 Hours.  350,000 Hours (equivalent of 175 full-time staff). 

This means that if all goes as hoped, in Year 7 we will have eliminated hunger in Oak Park.  The 350k Hours donated (if valued at $15/hour) is equivalent to $5.25 million devoted to eliminating hunger in Oak Park, or $24/week for each of the 4,200 hungry Oak Parkers*.

In Year 7 the time donations will mean a value of $25/week per hungry Oak Parker will be spent to eliminate hunger.  This adds $5.25 million more in economic exchanges to the Oak Park economy, which will spillover to other local businesses and result in $7.9 million in Oak Park economic activity.  And this will likely mean work available for exchange Hours for Oak Parkers who had been chronically hungry.

* 8% of Oak Park residents lived in poverty in 2012.  8% x 52,000 residents = 4,200 residents lived in poverty and were chronically hungry.

Many of our big problems - locally & nationally - are caused by money. Eg, poverty, jobs disappearing, environment, and growing inequality.  

Money is also a simple, pragmatic solution, but a new (and ancient) money based on time.  

Here's how it works.  When I help you for an hour, I credit my account for that hour and debit yours.  The hour I just earned...

Watch the video to see a detailed description of how timebanking was used with remarkable results in a neighborhood where a Black gang and an Hispanic gang were at each other's throats.
