When a do-good prankster let Eric, a homeless man, think he’d been given a $1,000 winning lottery ticket, Eric tried to give it back. The video went viral, and the internet raised $44,000 for Eric. That money was then used to feed, clothe, and house Eric for one year.

For April Fool’s Day last year, prankster Greg Benson surprised a group of fifty people at the Ascencia Homeless Shelter with a 5-star gourmet dinner prepared by celebrity chef Jesse Brune, providing many of the shelter residents with a dining experience that they had never had before.
Greg: How did you like it? Diner: It was delicious. Was that filet mignon? I never had it before. We never get steak..homeless people. Thank you.
At the end, the Greg presented the shelter with an additional $5,000 and is working with Prank It FWD, a site which will donate funds through the sharing of its videos.

Went to Alpine yesterday for a sushi lunch with hubby and his friend. Cracked open the fortune cookie afterwards and found not one, not two, but THREE fortunes inside! They were all the same fortune: “The current year will bring you much happiness.” Does this mean I’ll get three times the happiness? Or I’m three times more likely for it to come true? In any case, I never save these things, but this time I did. The waitress said she’d seen two in one cookie before, but never three.

Seems like they messed with the wrong folks, eh? The Unist’ot’en Camp was founded by members of the Wet’suwet’en Nation to resist the Tar Sands Gigaproject, a massive oil and gas drilling operation in Western Canada that’s encroaching on First Nations land. There are lots of other smart, badass folks who are going to bat for indigenous people’s rights in Canada. You should give them a look and a follow.
