Samaritanmag.com is the anti-tabloid, an online magazine that interviews people about the causes they support, in addition to highlighting the charitable initiatives of corporations and small businesses, and the charities themselves.

Samaritanmag.com is a cool unintimidating site that gives readers insight into a multitude of causes and hopefully gives them incentive to make a difference in the world, if they aren’t already.

Started by award-winning music journalist Karen Bliss (Billboard, RollingStone.com, MSN), Samaritanmag.com is a content- driven site with high journalistic standards; the stories are original — interviews are conducted with our writers for the online magazine — and not taken or repurposed from other sites, as is often the case in today’s media world.

Even short news pieces are only taken from the original press releases. Why is this important? Because Samaritanmag.com articles are fact-checked and comprised of information directly from the source.
Samaritanmag.com covers a range of causes; the list is endless from building wells in Africa to a line of clothing for people in wheelchairs to a toxic-free spa for people with cancer and mobility carts for sick or injured animals.

Among the artists interviewed for the site are:

Neil Young, The Who’s Pete Townshend, Rush’s Geddy Lee, Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora, Bryan Adams, Sammy Hagar, Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil, Drake, Nelly Furtado, One Direction, Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris, Cody Simpson, Ed Sheeran, Bruce Cockburn, Taylor Swift, P. Diddy, Rob Zombie, Peaches, Nick Carter, Simple Plan, Kate Nash, Danny Fernandes, Tom Cochrane, Buckcherry’s Josh Todd, 30 Seconds To Mars’ Jared Leto, The Tenors, Our Lady Peace’s Raine Maida and many more.

There is also a Charity Song of the Month, Cause Song of the Month, and Product of the Month.

This is a site for people who are interested in making a difference, either by finding the cause that speaks to them or by making informed buying decision based on companies’ corporate social responsibility platform.

Samaritanmag attracts the following identifiable groups of visitors:

1. the socially conscious in Canada/USA
2. the music/entertainment fan
3. the news junkie

Samaritanmag provides a forum for anyone looking to:
*Let consumers know about the good that you are doing *Your company’s corporate social responsibility platform *The products that are eco-friendly or have a charitable component

Does your company support a cause? Do you produce an environ- mentally-conscious product you want people to know about? Partner with Samaritanmag.com. Take out a banner ad or post a video that highlights the good you are doing at your company. Perhaps you are aligned with a certain cause or give your staff a day off to volunteer or sell a product with a portion of the proceeds going to charity? Consumers want to make informed buying decisions.
