What a wonderful story this has turned out to be. You may remember seeing a video back in March where a YouTube personality named "MagicogRahat" surprised a homeless man with a lottery ticket worth $1,000. The homeless man's name is Eric and his  reaction to  winning and his sincere desire to give back some of the money has inspired people from all over to donate to his cause. And now, w
