What happens when you open your wallet and give a homeless man $100?
While the overarching stereotype would have people assume the money would go to waste on drinking and drugs it isn’t always the case.
A group of filmmakers made a social experiment out of it – giving $100 to a homeless man on the street and the result was heartwarming.
The lesson did not come without hesitations when he entered the liquor store… but you will have to watch until the end of the movie to find out exactly what has helped restore our faith in humanity.
While this is only one example, it’s obvious that not all homeless people fit into the same stereotype and many people are just victims of circumstance.
As you wander the streets this Christmas hopefully we can all keep that front of mind when interacting with our fellow human beings.
