|Beaches L.E.T.S. mission:
To improve participants quality of life by providing, managing, and promoting an alternative trading system and to facilitate a mechanism to encourage trading.
Beaches LETS is modelled on similar systems all over Australia.
LETS is a non-profit community exchange/trading system for sharing skills and services.
LETS is based on the idea that all people have valuable skills and services to share with their community, whether they are under-employed, self employed, elderly,currently unemployed, or retired.

Mary is a computer operator & she wants a participant to mow her lawn..
George wants a haircut. Jill cuts his hair. She wants gardening, which she gets from John, who needs house cleaning. This is how everyone can share their skills & help others.
Beaches LETS uses the term "SHELLS" to describe their units/points. Each participant can help others & receive (Shells) to use in sharing with other participants.
A debit in (Shells) is simply an acknowledgment that the participant has received goods & services from another participant & has made a commitment to return goods &/or services to the same value to other participants.
