An act of goodwill is going viral with nearly three million views on YouTube. The video’s author states he noticed a kind, respectful homeless man in his neighborhood for the past couple of weeks and wanted to help. He did so with what appeared to be a winning lottery ticket. Although the ticket was not a winner, the video’s author worked with a local cashier to seem as though it was a $1,000 winning ticket. The man “gifted” the money is obviously overwhelmed by the gesture.
