This Guy Was Begging On The Street, But He Prepared An AWESOME Surprise for Those That Help.

This guy wants to make the world a better place. There is nothing he enjoys more than making a difference in someone’s day. He loves filming prank videos, but time after time he takes them to the next level. This young man came up with this idea after watching other footage of acts of kindness towards homeless. He never expected to have such emotional and meaningful experience. The stories some people shared with him astonish, they made it all worthwhile. That’s how a feel-good prank turned into a voice of those in need. We are quick to judge, but did you know that 40% of the foster children who age out after turning 21 (18 in some states) in the Midwest, become homeless? Please, share this video.


You never know what someone is going through. An estimated 100 million people are homeless worldwide. Approximately, one third of homeless are children and young adults. “Aging out” is the term used for young people that become too old for foster care and must live on their own. US Federal laws mandate that youths leave foster care by the age of 21, while many states, including Michigan and Minnesota make them leave at the age of 18. Very few services have been helping these young people make the transition to an independent life. Foster youths face a number of challenges during this transition. Many become homeless because they have no resources and no place to live. Others end up homeless because of the specific problems they had growing up, including psychiatric disorders. One out of every five “terminated” kids ends up homeless and two out of five have problems with the legal system, and often ended up in prison. These young people need training and preparation.
