Once again, the internet is proving to a YouTube prankster that they will get a lot more Shares and Views if the video can inspire a nation.
This video, from Josh Paler Lin, is a fine example and puts a beautiful exclamation point on the reminder, “You can’t judge a book by its cover.”
Watch what happens when Josh gives a homeless man $100. The man is so kind and humble and surprised — and articulate.
Click on the link near the end to see that Josh, after high viewer demand, set up a fundraising page for Thomas. It has raised $20,000 (which is double the $10K goal that was set) — and in just 24 hours. [UPDATE: By December 25, the fund has raised $85,000 to help him get his mother’s condominium back, if he wants to.]
And, by the way, as I’m posting this, his YouTube clip has racked up 3.1 million views in a day, and it probably will double by tomorrow.
