A couple months ago the internet was taken by storm when a homeless man named Eric was given a lottery ticket that turned out to be a $1000 ticket. The man then tried to give the person that gave him the ticket some of the money as thanks.

This act went viral and people wanted to know how to help Eric. Rahat, a man who is well known for doing pranks and the man that gave Eric the lottery ticket set up a fundraising account for people to donate money to help. $44,000 was raised to assist Eric and when Rahat went to surprise his friend with a new home, Eric shared good news of his own.
