Samaritan Workz

1st Hope will collaborate with private and public schools to institute the Samaritan Workz program. Students and teachers will use mobile phones and the “Samaritan Workz” app to issue citations and award persons for doing Workz for the good of their communities. Examples of Workz include valor both physical or moral, and acts of kindness such as repairs, planting trees, picking up trash, etc.  Samaritan Workz recognizes its reporters and samaritans by awarding them with a citation certificate and Valiants, which they can redeem eGift cards for services and products provided by merchants.

Bad News


Too often, negative forces take center stage and get the most publicity. People lose hope when the negative takes center stage over the positive. We are being bombarded with negativity 70% of news channels open their coverage with a crime-related story! Almost 90% of all news media is negative! 91% of movies and 85% of video games contain violence! A staggering 99.5% of popular music refers to violence! A recent YouGov U.S. survey asked, “do you think the world is getting better or worse, or neither getting better nor worse?” Only 6% of Americans responded that the world is getting better! The world and its youth have become caught up in a self-fulfilling prophecy, a feedback loop of negativity! Despite the media focus on negativity, the Bible teaches us that we can overcome evil with good! “For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous” (Romans 5:19)


We propose to promote the positive and foster hope in our citizens by focusing on the “good” in our communities. The Good Book tells us that hope is the “anchor of the soul.”  Hope is a powerful force - a single act or phrase, even an image, can give us hope, inspire us to action, and lift the spirits of millions. Our communities will thrive on the positive… we need hope and Samaritan heroes.



It’s said that human beings can change the world through just one random act of kindness at a time. A series of studies in neuroscience at Stanford University have found that kindness is ‘contagious’ and that if you see an act of kindness or generosity, you are likely to spread it. One good deed will, in turn, inspire another.

Samaritan Workz aims to help bring Workz of valor and kindness to scale within the community.
