three types of collaborative and cooperative communities.
MEMBERS FORM SHARING & COOPERATIVE COMMUNMITIES
The Community Build Program

- Group – Level Status:12 to 48 embers
- Cluster- Level Status: 48 to 144 members
- Storehouse Home-Level Status: 144 to 144,000 members
- When groups achieve the cluster community count of 144 members they can then begin to collectively collaborate with other cluster community members and form regional, national or global communities.
- Storehouse Community-When 1,000 clusters join together they form a Storehouse Community of 144,000 members. With these types of connections they are able to make great change in the world by their exchange of information and resources and concentrated focus.

The Community Credits Program
Community Credits or Community Time Credits are an all-electronic reward point system used for education and supplementing the purchasing of goods and services within the CACOON community. The Community Credits allow individuals to earn credits by attending participation in the Community Build Program.
How it works
- When members attend community building workshops, events, classes or other community building programs they will acquire Community Credit Time Points that can be used to supplement the purchasing, exchanging or sharing of items within the Creative Action Center.
- When members share information, goods/services and community credits within their local communities they strengthen their local economy by keeping the majority of this energy localized.
Community Credit Storehouse Program-This is our storing and distribution clearing house of the Community Credits Program. The program signifies a members commitment to learn how utilize use value resources and share sustainably.
- Members are allowed to store up to 12,000 points in their account called a storehouse.
- Members can retain more than 12,000 points at any time and are only limited to retaining the points at this level at any given time.
- A member can store up to 12,000 points in their storehouse for up to 3 months.
- Members are encouraged to use their points before the recycle date to help them facilitate use value exchanges and or to help others with needed use value resources or projects within their local community.
- At the three month recycle end date all unused community credit points beyond 3,000 points will be recycled back into the Community Storehouse for redistribution.
- Surplus Community Credit Points are recycled back to a members home community to support the development of Community Build projects, social businesses or social enterprise businesses in the members local community.
The Community Credit Program is an agreement within a community to use something other than currency as payment to solve a social problem.
Social Impact Community Funding
The storehouse Fund revenues and the community credits program both support the development of the 7 Creative Action Centers. Each center has been designed as an open source creation
space that supports the sustainability and self-sufficiency of local communities.
