For a couple weeks around the shopping center he lives next to, YouTube prankster MagicofRahat noticed Eric, a respectable homeless man, hanging around. Being the prankster that he is, Rahat decided to trick Eric into thinking he’d just won the lottery – while donating $1,000 cash to him on the spot and capturing it all on candid camera.
As the video of the prank gains millions of views on YouTube, Rahat aims to raise at least an additional $15,000 on Fundly to help Eric improve his lifestyle. So far the campaign has raised over $3,800. You can watch the video below, and donate to Eric here.
