Internet Ensures Disabled Vet Never Has To Worry About Putting Food On The Table Again

Disabled Vet Gets Life-Changing Thank You!

Earlier this month, a struggling Gulf War veteran with disabilities had to decide whether to give up his home or feed his family. Now, thanks to the Internet, this former serviceman won’t ever have to make that impossible choice.

But the happy ending for this story actually started with the kindness of another vet who had fallen on hard times.

Last month, Las Vegas magician Rob Anderson pulled off one of his greatest tricks.
He made piles of money pour out from homeless veteran Alan McKracken’s cardboard sign. Anderson then inspired the Internet to donate money too and eventually collected more than $40,000.
But McKracken only accepted the money he needed and asked that the rest be given to another veteran in need.

That’s when Anderson visited Gulf War veteran Johnny Hicks who said he was recently fired from his government job after taking time off to get surgery for a disability he incurred while serving.
Since then, money has been tight for the family of six, especially after they recently lost much of their furniture and clothes to a mold issue.

I want to be able to do good things for people,” said Hicks who served in the Navy for 20 years. “I’m just struggling right now.”

The family subsists on $1,200 a month from his military retirement, which isn’t enough to cover their food and rent costs.

But with help from complete strangers, Anderson had enough funds to pay those bills, and a little leftover for some extra frills.

"You deserve it -- for your service to the country, for allowing me to live the life I want to live,” Anderson told the shocked veteran. “You provided that for me and a lot of other people.”
Watch the video above to see this deserving and grateful veteran get a boost so he can get back on his feet.

Homeless Shelter Is Transformed Into 5-Star Restaurant, Hot Food And Warm Hearts All Around

Normally prankster Greg Benson of Mediocre Films is out getting the best of unsuspecting victims of his silly antics, but this day he did something different with his pranking power.
Watch him join forces with's "Prank it Fwd" campaign to turn the Ascencia homeless shelter in Glendale, Calif., into a five-star restaurant. The "Prank it Fwd" campaign aims to perform positive pranks for a change, and when you see the surprised faces of the 50 homeless people who got to experience the "Ascencia" restaurant, you'll be convinced that goal was achieved.
Benson, along with his team, turned a room in the shelter into a beautiful restaurant where participants got to enjoy a classy dining experience. Patrons were surprised to find live classical music, a custom-made menu and waiters in black tie serving filet mignon and desserts.
To top it all off, the video ends with a donation of $5,000 made out to the shelter. We'd take a second helping of this kind of feel-good prank any day.
