Well worth three minutes of your time in my opinion. A homeless man is set up to win a $1000 on the lottery. His reaction is beautiful. I will not ruin it with further comments..



purp..

A true testament to paying it forward.

We know the media is a huge trap, it's only goal is to manipulate and control, yet we still believe what they say. Stop believing their lies.

Look around you. Most people are good. Most people are very generous and loving.

Sure. We have some a$$ holes, but they are the definite minority. Don't let them ruin the pot. Set them straight, or kick them to the curve.

People are amazing. We need to start realizing this and start being the best that we can be.

We can do this. I often wonder what would happen if we could teach people how to remove hate from their hearts and minds. It is doable, we just have to replace it with something.

Your post is ridiculous. Anyone can see that this man is NOT a crackhead. Good weight, good balance, eyes are clear.... I have been homeless before, albeit less than a month, but it was brutal. These men swallow their pride, and eventually they feel as if they are nothing. The look of humility on this mans face as he tries to share that money has touched my heart.
Not every homeless person is on crack, and I'm pretty sure that comment was racially motivated. For shame.

And you know hes an alcoholic or crack addict how?

You are stereotyping because he is homeless. You are a dick head, and that isn't a stereotype, you portray the type of behavior that is attributed with that name, dick head.


OP I watched the video last night and shed a tear, I'm a grown ass man and that video got me good when he tried holding back his tears.

I wish things like this caught on more rather than that neknomination bull# xx

The homeless are not known for their financial know-how and great decision making.
But yes. I must be racist.

It would have been more amazing if he hadn't filmed it and turned it into a youtube promo. I'm happy for the homeless guy. Hopefully he can get his life together and not piss it away.

How low can you go.
Your posts only speak about yourself, psychology 101, and are indications you are an addict of some type if that's the first thing to cross your mind.

I see I upset the tree hugging cry-baby patrol.

Shall I fetch some tissues?

S n F, friend... That was very touching.

I agree with the guy who said we are all generally good.

For the person here who stereo typed, ' You don't see things as 'they' are, you see them as 'you' are. ~Nin

Thanks for sharing OP.

I hope you don't judge yourself as harshly as you judge others...

How can you be an 'aging liberal hippie douche' when you make a comment like yours? The douche part I get but liberal? Aging? Your prejudice is astounding. And I don't necessarily mean racial prejudice. You're just ignorant and I can only hope that you have the privilege of being homeless at some point in your life so you can get some perspective. A mile in another man's shoes.

Yes, and the greedy just don't get it although most of them have been paid forward several times. Would be nice if big business in these tough times for the average person would understand how they have been paid many times over by the resources of the country and loosen up.

Which state will pay out more then 600$ on the spot? I can't seem to find one. With cameras rolling and following these people it makes it look stages. If not I praise the free hand out but this youtuber/liveleaker is looking for money through views and advertising.

Neither are bankers and politicians.

I'm glad that I got to see it.

It was worth filming and watching, even if I am the only viewer in the world.

The rabbit hole deepens...
I've lived in many states and have worked with lottery tickets. As far as I know, most require an establishment to pay only $300-500 at the most without getting in touch with the state lottery offices.
I guess I could troll some sites see what I come up with.

ETA: it didn't take long...PA retailers can pay out up to $2500 on site...but the man won more than $600 and must fill out a claim form and submit it to the state lottery office.

So yeah it could be a legit video.
