JOIN US IN OUR MISSION TO EDUCATE THE WORLD ON RIDESHARE SAFETY.
HELP US PREVENT ANOTHER UNIMAGINABLE
On March 29, 2019, Samantha Josephson, a 21 year-old senior at the University of South Carolina, was kidnapped and murdered when she was targeted by a person posing as a rideshare driver. Immediately following this unfathomable tragedy, Samantha's parents, Seymour and Marci Josephson, set out to educate others on the importance of ride share safety so that no other family would have to suffer this kind of loss.
The #WHATSMYNAME Foundation was established in honor of their daughter, Samantha Josephson.

Seymour Josephson took the stage at West Lake Park in downtown Robbinsville, NJ facing a few hundred silent onlookers and a dozen national broadcast cameramen. He collected himself for moment before speaking, as those moments had recently become scant.
Just four earlier, on March 29, Josephson’s daughter Samantha, 21, was enjoying her last semester at the University at South Carolina. A day later, on March 30, he was trying to grasp her horrific death at the hands of a stranger.
