Fray it

A new way of sharing your talents and skills in your surroundings. Fray it, offers people the possibility to discover and ask services in the neighbourhood, with an application on your smartphone.

For example, if you are an expert in making muffins and you would like to do something with it.

I am thinking about a small fee but i would like to know for sure.

It might be an idea for radiostations to rent out hours, or give them away in a competition (in which listeners give either creative suggestions, or Continue reading Radio Rent-out!
