Members send Thank-You notes, with attached Gratitude Points (GPs) equivalent to US dollars
We believe that a regular use of ThankYou Hub can bring us the following benefits.

Gratitude Points (GPs) are an online currency with which one can say, Thank you. GPs can be bought and redeemed for real money in US dollars.
To purchase GPs: 1$ = 4 GPs
The redeemable value of GPs is a bit less than the purchase value in order to discourage redemption and promote exchange of GPs among members as they seek and provide more and more help from/to each other.
To redeem GPs: 1$ = 5 GPs
See How/Why ThankYou Hub for more information about all that may be done with GPs on this site.
Giving GPs a monetary value expresses how grateful we are for help and friendship. When we give GPs, we are giving away something worthwhile to us. Giving GPs quantifies how much worth and value is put on a gratitude transaction. The more the worth, the more the GPs given.
Hiring a professional to help with a project can often be expensive, and paying in cash for non-professional help from friends and neighbors can seem cold and unappreciative. ThankYouHub.Com is about helping each other, not making money. So while we exchange GPs and keep accounts of projects, GPs should only be viewed as an intermediate currency, used mostly to pay it forward. Sometimes people need help with fairly menial tasks. This is why the GP currency is so beneficial. They can ask for help from friends and neighbors who are good at particular hobbies say sewing hems or painting furniture and can thank them without emptying their wallet. It also enables us to use your hobbies and areas of interest to help others in the community. The more we help in the community and the feeling of gratitude prevails, the better we become!
There are 2 ways we can get GPs in our account:
Once a member redeems GPs from their account, the cash equivalent of the redeemed GPs is sent to them through Paypal (http://paypal.com) to the email address used by them to login to their account on ThankYouHub.Com.
