LOS ANGELES (WGN-TV) — What would a homeless person do with $100? Josh Paler Lin claims he wanted to find out.

So, he picked a homeless person at random — a man named Thomas. He gave him $100 and then secretly followed him with a camera to see what he would do.

How he spends the money will warm your heart.

Now some folks on social media claim that Lin’s video is staged, but only time will tell.  What isn’t staged is that warm feeling inside you get when you watch this video.

The video was posted to YouTube Monday, and it has been viewed more than 2 million times and counting.

A link posted in the description has information on how folks can help Thomas by making a donation.

The campaign had a $10,000 goal and after 24 hours of the video being posted online, it exceeded that goal.
