The Courtesy Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to seeking out and rewarding courteous behavior. Through positive reinforcement, our goal is to make life a little more comfortable for everyone.  

Our concept is incredibly simple: being nice to one another can do more than making others and ourselves just a little happier, it can actually pay.    

Here's how it works: 

Our carefully vetted and trained volunteers spend their time in malls, on busy streets, in parks, and almost anywhere else where lots of people gather. We quietly people-watch, observing the behavior of others and looking for courtesy.

When we see a courteous act, we instantly reward it with $100 cash.

In some cases, we may do more. If the courteous person agrees, we may take photos to publish on our website and even in the media. We may even offer an official certificate along with the cash. Everyone appreciates courtesy, everyone appreciates recognition, and everyone appreciates a little unexpected cash. We combine all of these wonderful (and quite powerful) things to make society a little more pleasant for everyone.
