Homeless "Lottery" Winner Gets A House!

by Kelly K posted May 9 2014 7:17AM
What started out as a friendly prank changed a homeless man's life. Magician prankster Magic of Rahat helped a homeless man in his neighborhood named Eric when he gave him a fake lottery ticket that he was able to redeem for $1,000. Eric was so touched that he offered to give Rahat back some of the money. The video of this whole exchange got over 15 million hits on YouTube and led to people wanting to donate more to Eric.  So Rahat set up a site that raised over $46,000 from nearly 3,000 donors.  Rahat took that money to buy Eric a furnished house, put $20,000 in a bank account for him and get him a job!!
