About WeShare

WeShare is a Gift Economy community group sharing skills, knowledge, stuff & time, in a money-free environment – just for the love of it! We invite you to join so that together we can:

  • Give, swap, lend, teach, learn with each other - and all for free
  • Reduce the environmental impact of consumption by sharing the things we only use occasionally
  • Inspire, connect, support and equip each other to create local initiatives that strengthen ourselves and community
  • Create friendships and cooperative practices locally
  • Encourage random acts of kindness to become the basis of human interaction
  • Be part of a growing worldwide movement for a more sustainable and caring world
  • This and more —the possibilities are endless!

Who are we?

We are a group of people who live in the greater Dublin area. What brought us together is our shared interest in helping others where we can, finding new ways to satisfy the needs in our lives, and connecting with people who share our interests.

Why are we here?

We want to reconnect people in their communities, save money, be creative, provide goods and services to each other in a nicer and healthier way, and while doing so, have fun!

How does it work?

All you need to do is create an ask and explain what it is you are looking for. If another member can help then they can reply to your ask and you can work out the details. If you have something to offer then add an offer and other members can accept it.

Do I need to do anything in return?

No. The idea is to give freely to the group just for the love of it! Of course if you can do something for anyone else in the group then it would be much appreciated.

What kind of things can I ask for?

Just about anything! You can ask for an old sofa, guitar lessons or a lend of a book. You could ask if someone has a spare rocketship if you like. It doesn't really matter what you ask for. Just ask!

How much does it cost?

Absolutely nothing! In fact the entire Gift Economy is based on everyone giving freely without any money or barter needed.
