We all know the answer to this one...Try, try again! Well, I wouldn't exactly call our presentation at the first Delmar Divide St. Louis Soup event unsuccessful. After all, we did spread the good word of timebanking to an audience of 50+. We later found out that we came in second place, and by a small margin. So,we have applied again to present at the next event and will hear back mid-month. A little money in hand to go toward our growing lending library and some polished marketing would be pretty sweet!
In the meantime we continue to network and have connected to Gracehill, and M.O.R.E. and even found that we were chosen to be included in the Sustainable Neighborhood Toolkit for the City of St. Louis. We also received training on the software offered by hOurworld and are just weeks away from beginning regular orientations to grow our collective!
