Imagine you received 100 bucks? How would you spend this money? Before you answer my question, let me tell you a story about Thomas – a homeless guy who was secretly filmed by YouTube star Josh Paler Lin.

As a social experiment, Thomas was given a $100 bill and then followed with a hidden camera to see what he was going to spend it on. As we watch the video it is clear to Josh that the down-and-out guy will buy alcohol the moment he goes straight to a liquor store. A few minutes later Thomas leaves the shop and heads for a local park. But it isn’t booze that the man keeps in his bag. Instead, he shares foodstuff with other homeless folks in the park!

Josh approaches the man to ask why he decided to do that. Thomas replies „there’s things money can’t buy and I get a happiness out of what I’m doing.” What’s more, we find out how he became homeless and what happened to his mother and stepfather. He also explains how he lost the condo he used to have. Anyway, watch the full video to get more information.

It’s a heart-warming story which proves that appearances can be very deceptive.  But that’s not the end of this story. Josh Paler Lin created a page where people can donate cash and help Thomas make a fresh start. The good news is that people have been very generous so far. By the way, are you ready to answer my question now? What would you do with 100 bucks? Please comment below in English or Polish.

  1. Moja znajoma była świadkiem podobnego zdarzenia… Na dworcu obdarowała żebrzącego nie dając mu wprawdzie do rąk pieniędzy… Kupiła mu obiad… Ten… zamiast sam zjeść najpierw poszedł po kolegę i podzielił się z nim obiadem. Taki wydawałoby się zwykły menel…. Jak to pozory mylą pozdrawiam
