Fortunately a Sydney PWF reader advised that LETS (Local Exchange Trading Scheme) can put people in touch for this sort of exchange. One phone call to the Melbourne LETS office in Maureen’s area – Diamond Valley Northern Suburbs – confirmed this was possible and I discovered yesterday that a helper was able to move in with Maureen immediately…pretty impressive!
DVNS LETS – Community Based Skills Sharing In Action – says:
- Let’s trade
- Let’s save money
- Let’s build a sense of community
- Let’s have more time to relax
DVNS LETS has its own interpretation of LETS: Local Energy Transfer System!
Thanks also to Roy who is waiting to become a volunteer for the Peace Corp and offered to volunteer for Maureen while waiting.
Do you have some good news stories about LETS?
