You are a samaritan
One act of kindness a month. It may not seem like much, but that’s what we’re asking for. Because when someone has 30 people on their team, that’s one smile a day to help them endure their journey home.
You’d be surprised, in this time of social and physical isolation, how simple acts of kindness can go a long way to help people take steps towards life-changing goals. We’ve seen it happen dozens of times.
Our data shows that most Samaritan members statistically improve their quality of life when they’re able to access ≥$50/month from a team of ≥5 samaritans for ≥6 months.
How can so little go so far?
Because it’s not just money that people lack.
It’s a team of believers; a social home of people who can strengthen someone’s fight to stay afloat. It is a lack of neighbors—a social poverty—most commonly leads people to the street to begin with.
So what could this monthly act of kindness be for you?
It could be giving $10/month towards their goals; it could be sending a message of encouragement or opportunity; it could be dropping a needed item at a tent city or at an organization; it could be bringing the person on for a gig like gardening or playing music at an event; it could simply be inviting others to join the person’s team. Give where you’re gifted. The rest will take care of itself.
Would you join the team of a Samaritan Member? We’d be thrilled to have you.
