The Brownie Points concept is inspired by the 'Pay it Forward' concept but is quite different. This idea allows anyone to donate their time or skills services no matter how small. Brownie points are earned and can be redeemed within the app/website. For instance a Piano Teacher could give 5 hours of lessons to the Brownie Points website and earn 5 brownie points. These points could be used to redeem 5 hours from a landscape gardener or take 5 hours of art lessons in the community. All the services would be on a local level and no money would change hands. This service encourages community involvement and allows individuals to receive and give services for free.
