see stories of change

when you see someone in need, you want to help. it’s only human. but sometimes it’s just not that simple. often you don’t have the time, and sometimes you miss your opportunity.

but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a second chance.

the samaritan app gives you the opportunity to give the moment you see someone in need. when you pass a person in need, his or her beacon will send a story to your phone. you’ll learn a little bit about them. and then, when you choose, you can give a little money as an investment in that person’s journey.

you want to help a person in need. samaritan gives you the chance to do something about it.
