Magician Rips up a Homeless Veteran’s sign. Then Surprises Him…

A man who mocked and ripped up a homeless veteran’s sign on a Las Vegas street corner ended up leaving him with a nice surprise.

Rob Anderson, who works as a magician, heard homeless veteran Alan McCracken lived on the streets and just wanted to make people smile even if he did not receive any money.

McCracken was also given temporary housing with the help of Veterans Affairs in Las Vegas. He currently shares a room with three other veterans and is provided with meals and basic living necessities.

For those who are concerned, Rob says he stuck around and picked all the money up after the camera stopped rolling. He also set up a GoFundMe charity page for Alan, the homeless man.

  1. I don’t like videos and tricks like this. It seems unkind to play with people’s emotions and test them when we already know they have a challenging life. If he wants to be kind, do it directly, offer the man some magic, money, hugs or help.
