Rahat is a YouTube video producer that has made viral videos for the last few years, most involving pranks on unsuspecting drive thru workers. But this time he wanted to pay it forward and make a video that would help someone and change a man’s life.
Rahat had noticed a homeless man hanging around a shopping center that he lived near. His neighbors told him that the man was a nice, respectable guy. So Rahat decided to play a trick on him and make him think he just won the lottery. But unlike most pranks, the joke isn’t on anyone, and this video has an extremely happy ending. And what the man does after Rahat decides to pay it forward, might just make you cry.
Rahat hasn’t stopped there to help out the homeless man, named Eric. He’s also set up a fundraising page to raise money to help Eric have a better life. The original goal was to raise $20,000 dollars. As of March 2014, the effort has raised over $33,000!
