Magician Rips Up Homeless Man's Sign | Video

A Magician's Trick on a Homeless Vet Turns Into an Incredible Story

After magician Rob Anderson heard about Alan McKracken, a homeless veteran in Vegas who "just wanted to make people smile," Rob decided to make him smile. When Rob approached Alan on the street, he grabbed his sign, which read, "Homeless trying to get by, anything helps, God bless." He started ripping the sign into small pieces, and Alan, confused, asked Rob why he tore up his sign — and suddenly it's the magician who gets the real surprise! You'll have to watch the video to see what happens, but know that since the clip went viral, Rob has set up a GoFundMe page for Alan, and he's already raised more than $20,000 for the homeless vet to help provide him with an apartment, food, and new clothes.
