I came across this video this morning and I really felt it needed to be shared here. It says so much in just 10 minutes. I guess you could say it is a little play on the Pay it Forward. Either way, it does slow one down for a minute and make one think.

Perhaps just little baby step changes can get us back on track. Frankly Im tired of waiting on the big guys to get off their butts. It really is up to us people.

Side note, some may want to get a box of tissues before watching. I guarantee you won't feel like you wasted 10 minutes of your life. That is if you have a heart anyway

Speaking of tissues, the homeless guy wiped the boogers off with his hand then proceeded to touch the coffee cups and machines. Then after placing money on the ground the girl with the kid picks up the money and kisses it. Gross, isn't she worried about getting herpes or hepatitis??

The whole video accurately displays how bacteria and viruses are transmitted in society.

I bet that man had accepted the fact that you don't need worldly possessions to be happy. His happiness came from making someones day.
It makes me want to go out and give a hobo $5 to help people out.

Definitely a tear jerker.
Makes you realize what is important in this world.
No good deed goes unnoticed.

This should be front page at ATS.

Somehow, I just don't really get the feeling that that was what the video was really trying to show. The lady he gave the coffee too dint look exactly like she just got out of the shower, nor did she appear that she was staying at the Ritz. As far as the little boy, well, I think little boys probably eat a good bit a dirt throughout the day anyway, one way or another..... shaking head....

I wish it would make the front page, but sadly it is not full of doom and gloom and actually shows a way to start making small changes, so I doubt it will make it there.

Thanks for sharing that. That's hope and change that we need definitely.

It was the woman who kissed the money she picked up off the ground. Instant herpes. The homeless guy who just previously wiped boogers off his nose placed it there, on a dirty hobo infested sidewalk where someone who has hep c could have spat on the ground just a few hours earlier.

There is a few more examples but this video has numerous instances of improper hygiene.

Thank you for this. It was beautiful and moving. In these trying times we all need to lend a helping hand to our fellow man. No matter our color, religion, or nationality, we are all part of the human race. Love all, serve all.

No troll comments here. Pointing out very serious flaws in the video that needs to be brought to the attention of whoever made it. They are promoting bad hygiene.

Oh and also if you notice before the bum goes to the coffee machine he steals something and sticks it in his pocket.

So, I am curious? Just exactly how would you produce this movie and get the same point across without all the imperfections you have chosen to point out here?

Damn, man.

That was .95 well spent, yes? Imagine what this guy could have done with a $20 dollar bill. Awesome.

Imagine if each of us that could afford to make it $20.00, broke it down and did 20 things? How much better yes? For now though, Im content if everyone started with .95 cents.

This is because we live in a super clean society. Try it from the other side, they are promoting a healthy and well-developed immune system.


ETA Forgot to comment on the video (it's not the 1st time I've seen it here but as things tend to disappear quickly it is well worth multiple reposts). For a short movie this is probably one of the most poignant and emotionally charged things I've seen in quite a while. And yes, a few tears did flow.
It makes you think about the bigger picture, that is always good imho. Thanks for posting.
