Rooster was started by a group of friends (that's us!) who wanted to see more sharing and human connections in the world. It is a place for neighbors to help, borrow, share, and get together with one another - all for free. Instead of money, we pay it forward.
The movement started from our living room and spread its wings to tens of thousands of members, as more towns continue to join us.

Rooster is my life’s mission. I want to see more connectedness, kindness and empathy in the world and hope you do too. That’s what we’re here for.
I love waking up every morning and working towards a better world.
