“Samaritan” in 80 seconds ⏰
Since switching from GiveSafe to Samaritan, we’ve seen an uptick in samaritans out there equipping this as a new response to homelessness (4,395 in Seattle now).
I was in Capitol Hill sharing this with a group of creatives. A tall fella approached me after– “Hey, my name is Mike. I’m a filmmaker that just moved from Denver. I want to create a film about this that’s worth sharing.”
Here’s the film, explaining the vision and concept of Samaritan in just over a minute.
Sharing the video helps raise the odds for homeless beacon holders — we’re aiming at 100 shares! Would you help us get there?
The video stars our very own Jessica Huffman, whose hair only coincidentally matches our colors, and Michael M — a beloved beacon holder. Michael is one of the most articulate people I’ve met, and I recently caught up with him about what your support through a beacon has meant.
Many of you have asked how to get someone a beacon. Drop a pin on this downtown map (samaritan.city/include), and we’ll head over there to see if they, or anyone else, would like one.
Lastly, if you’re in Seattle or Denver and need video, look Mike Sharon up at 6162 Productions. Thank you, Mike.
