A Little Generosity Goes a Long Way for This Homeless Man

Last year, a homeless man named Eric was surprised when he was offered a winning lottery ticket worth $1,000. What he didn’t know was that the ticket was actually a losing ticket and YouTube personality MagicofRahat had given the store clerk $1,000 cash to give Eric and asked him to play along. What happened next was a beautiful display of generosity — not only by Rahat, but by Eric himself.

Watch it all unfold here.

Fans of MagicofRahat were so moved by Eric’s generosity that they wanted to chip in and help him out. And they did — to the tune of $44,000. Watch this video to see what Rahat did for Eric with that money. It will leave you at least a little misty-eyed. Promise.

We’re pretty confident the generosity doesn’t stop here. Can’t wait to see how Eric pays it forward.
