These Homeless People Got a Surprise They’ll Never Forget
We live in a cruel and cynical world, everybody knows that. But some people manage rise above the cynicism and hardship to make other people’s day a little better. Take Youtuber Greg Benson for example. Benson, whose main Youtube channel is called MediocreFilms, has been known to do a prank or two, usually involving a hidden camera and him doing something outrageous. Yet, he also does a segment called “Prank It Forward: Pranks For Good,” which is part of an organization that does positive pranks in the spirit of the film ‘Pay It Forward’. So what did Benson do this time? Read on for a truly heartwarming prank!
1. Not all pranks are bad
Everyone at one point or another has either done a prank or has been the victim of one but the purpose of those are usually to embarrass, scare, humiliate, or even anger someone. Have you ever done a prank that would actually generate joy or make someone’s day? That is what Prank It Forward does but it’s more than just making people smile.
The Prank It Forward organization is actually a campaign for charity as they not only bring awareness to homelessness and poverty but also raise money for those causes. For every 1,000 views their videos get and for every share that uses the hashtag #PrankitFWD, they donate a dollar to charity.
