The Good Samaritan
Celebrating the humanity and decency exemplified by selfless acts of kindness at the grass roots level to elevate expectations and make the world a better place.
Good Samaritan Awards
We accept nominations from our community and seek to provide a positive message about the important effect a single good deed can have on the lives of so many.
Nominate Good Samaritans
Help us identify the Good Samaritans among us. Selfless people worthy of praise yet too humble to seek it for themselves.
Good Samaritan Awards winners of the past inspire our present actions and future dedication to worthy causes. Learn more about the wonderful people who inspire positive results and successfully spur changes for the betterment of all. Learning from others is often the best way to improve the person you see in the mirror.
Through our work identifying and drawing attention to the good works of others we also unearth many trustworthy charitable organizations that our community may be interested to learn more about. See the impact these groups are already having and learn how you can help them succeed even more.
Turn on the television, read any newspaper or go to most 'news websites' and you'll find they all follow the misguided adage that 'if it bleeds it leads' - making bad news the top story just to sell more advertising. Get beyond that distorted view and see some of the good news that quietly takes place in the world every day with little fanfare.
Our objective is a very simple one. We seek to shift publicity away from the negative news that sours the spirit and teaches people about the worst among us, in favor of positive news capable of uplifting the spirit and inspiring the best from us all. Please assist us by becoming a vibrant part of our growing community, spreading the word about our work via friends and social media or nominating worthy award winning candidates for their charitable activities and selfless acts of kindness.
