YouTube Personality Surprises Homeless Man With a HouseSubmitted by barracuda_trader on Thu, 05/08/2014 - 19:09
In March, YouTube personality Rahat Hossain pranked a homeless man named Eric by giving him a lottery ticket that ended up "winning" $1,000 at a convenience store in on the setup. It's a good-natured scheme, but it was Eric's insistence on sharing his winnings with Hossain that sent the video soaring to over 15 million views.
Due to the overwhelming response, Hossain set up a fundraiser for Eric that collected $44,000. This time, the prankster unveils his next surprise for his homeless friend, a newly furnished home with rent paid for a year and money for expenses.

The purpose of this campaign is to contribute to Eric, the man in my “Homeless Lottery Winner” video. A lot of you have given a tremendous amount of love and support for Eric and I wish to help even more, this time, with your help!
