What Makes A Good Samaritan?
This wonderful world is full of all different types of (good) people. Those who use their time to make the world a better place are on the top of the list. A good Samaritan is defined as a charitable or helpful person. Would you consider yourself one?
Laura Reiss of Boca Raton, Florida runs an organization called Samaritans365. Her organization teaches kids what it means to be a "good Samaritan". Samaritans 365 provides free, educational programs that teach children the fulfillment that comes from creating positive change in their homes, communities, and beyond. Laura's intention is to start a global conversation to re-educate humankind about the importance of giving to others.
Through various charitable events and activities children are taught how to make a positive difference. While involved in the program, kids will volunteer at shelters, help people in need and see how their acts can change the world.
