Homeless Man Shares Pizza With Stranger, And We're Splitting Our Lunch With The Next Passerby

You don’t need to have much in your pockets to change the world, a big-hearted homeless man has reminded us.

While conducting a social experiment, YouTube prankster Sam Pepper approached a few diners in a pizza shop, expressed that he was hungry and asked if they could spare a slice. He was rejected each time.

The first person to offer Pepper something to eat was the last person he expected help from. A down-and-out homeless guy didn't hesitate to share his food.

Perhaps what was most inspiring about the experiment was that this was the first homeless man Pepper approached.

It’s a lesson about the essence of giving that we continue to learn from the people who have the least amount of resources to share.

YouTube funny guy Magic of Rahat had a similar experience back in March.

He bought a lottery ticket from a store owner and also gave the clerk $1,000, so that whoever claimed the ticket would think he won the jackpot. Rahat then handed the ticket to a homeless man in the neighborhood who was overwhelmed when he "won" the lotto.

But the first gesture he made after collecting his winnings was offering to split his money with Rahat.

Excuse us. We’re going to break bread with someone in need now.
