YouTuber Josh Paler Lindecided to test the theory by giving a homeless individual $100 and seeing how they would spend the money. He found Thomas, a hungry and homeless man on the side of the freeway in Los Angeles, down on his luck, with circumstances conspiring against him and desperately in need of help.
He was forced to quit his job for care for his sick parents, both of whom he tragically lost in the space of a few weeks, his step-dad to cancer and his mother to kidney failure. High medical costs forced him to sell everything he had which lead to him becoming homeless.
After handing over $100 and giving Thomas a few words of encouragement, Josh left the scene, but secretly started to film Thomas from a distance. It wasn`t long before Thomas headed to the local liquor store armed with $100 .
There are a lot of people that are victim of circumstance. There`s a lot of good people that are homeless.
Find out how you can help Thomas, by becoming part of the crowdfunding campaign to help him get back on his feet.
Together we can all make a difference, just like Thomas did.
