People generally don’t think of anything nice when they hear the word “prank.” Too often, pranks are dangerous or malicious in nature, and meant to humiliate and degrade those who fall for them. If you grew up with older siblings, you probably know what it’s like to be pranked yourself – and that you don’t want to be on the receiving end ever again.
Unless, of course, you’re being pranked by the Prank It FWD campaign. Since early 2014, the organization has been surprising individuals with life-changing “pranks.” From a housekeeper who was given her own house to an ice cream truck that hands out much more than cold treats, Prank It FWD has made a difference in many lives. However, their philanthropy doesn’t stop there. For every 1,000 views or single share of their latest video, they donate $1 to DoSomething.org, one of the largest platforms for social change in the world. How’s that for using YouTube for a good cause?
In this video, they decide to convert a homeless shelter into a spa. For the homeless men and women at this shelter, it gave them the feeling of finally being seen. It may not sound like much, but when you're basically treated like you're invisible every single day, it's a simple but powerful gesture.
Be sure to SHARE this touching video with your family and friends.
