Video Camera, Forms, Yarn, Crochet Hook, Worker, Dimensions Variable, Duration Variable

Contact Regarding Availability

The Television Viewing Offset System (TVOS) allows participants the freedom to enjoy their favored TV viewing habbits while simultaneously arranging for productive labor activity to occur on their behalf. Participants can choose to purchase hour-long segments of chrochet-labor, which will go towards the construction of blankets that will be donated to premature infant care facilities.

Each hour purchased will offset the participant's own hour's-worth of TV viewing. Therefore the price for each offset increment is determined by the participant's own hourly wage. As a document of the arrangement, each participant will recieve a DVD featuring their allotment of crochet-labor equal in duration to his or her purchased time.
