SAMP is a silicon valley nonprofit organization that aims to spread and encourage unity by giving back to communities through various acts of kindness. I think we fail to realize how such simple acts of kindness can create a big impact on our communities! #SAMP is not only promoting empathy but is inspiring us to build a society filled with concern and consideration for others!
I initially received the idea to start #SAMP when I was scrolling through Instagram and encountered a picture of a healthcare worker exhausted and crying. At that moment, I realized how necessary it was to thank the people that are putting themselves at risk everyday and working endlessly to help others. That was when I came up with our first project- if there was a way for me to spread positivity in my community, then it would be through thank you cards.
So, I immediately got to work and to my surprise, many other students were willing to support my cause! I managed to gather a team of 30 aspiring high school students and together, we have delivered 3,600 thank you cards to 12 locations across the Silicon Valley. We also received quite a few thank you messages and cards digitally, which we have displayed on our website and Instagram page.
