Just when you thought the amazing story of Homeless Lottery Winner was long done and gone from the headlines, today the uplifting story was taken up a notch. A very BIG notch.
Back in March Eric was given a fake winning lottery ticket as a handout. When he cashed in the ticket, he was told he won $1,000. He tried to give most of it back to Rahat, that man who provided the cash.
Well, Rahat then setup a donations account for Eric the homeless lottery winner, and the amazing people of the internet donated. A lot. Over $44,000!
Rahat proceeded to rent a home for Eric, pay for it for a year, fill it with new furniture and appliances, and give Eric access to the remaining $20,000 + in a joint checking account.
Rahat picks up Eric at the motel he’s staying at now, and Eric tells him the great news. He has a NEW job! Well, Eric is about to give him some better news…Watch it all unfold in the video. Faith in humanity, restored, for now.
