Back in March, YouTuber MagicofRahat pranked a homeless man name Eric by giving him a scratch-off lottery ticket. Although the ticket was fake, Rahat had the store owner give Eric $1,000 in cash.

The whole prank was filmed and the video went viral as the internet fell in love with Eric’s tear-jerking humility after wanting to share his winnings with Rahat.

Now, unknown to Eric, Rahat launched a crowdfunding campaign and managed to raise $44,000 in 17 days. Using the money, Rahat got a house for Eric and he is about to surprise him with his new home. Watch Eric’s heartfelt reaction.
