VIDEO: Josh Paler Lin Finds Out What Happens If You Give A Homeless Man $100
We all see those homeless people standing on street corners or at free way exits asking for some money. But home many of us actually give them some? I never have, why? Because we were told that they probably are going to find the nearest liquor store and spend our hard earned money on booze instead of some clothes, or soap or a toothbrush or at least some food.
Josh Paler Lin, known as the “craziest prankster alive” who has his own YouTube channel dedicated to his pranks and social experiments, wanted to know what would happen if he gave a homeless man $100.
Lin, found a homeless man named Thomas gave him $100 dollars and then secretly followed him to see where he would spend it. Watch the very unexpected outcome here. Its crazy how much people surprise you sometimes.
Lin says about his experience:
I wasn’t expecting to get this kind of footage… to be honest, I thought this video would be more an exposing homeless people video at first. But I’m so glad that I could witness and capture such a beautiful moment. This has to be one of the most amazing experience so far on this channel. I did not only just help a homeless man, but I actually met an incredible human being and a friend. We were following him for a couple miles for almost an hour or so. Later that day we took him out to eat and got him a hotel to stay. The more I talk to him, the more I sense how genuine he is…. I gave him my number and told him to call me when he needs help. This again proof that not all the homeless people are bad people. Never judge a book by its cover. One love! :)
If you fell in love with Thomas as much as Lin did, a fund raising site has been set up for him.
