LOS ANGELES — Josh Paler Lin wanted find out what a homeless man does after he’s unexpectedly given $100.

After picking the random man, who said his name was Thomas, and handing him $100 in cash, he followed him with a camera — and what happened is pretty neat.

The video was uploaded Monday. As of Tuesday morning it had nearly 3 million views on YouTube.

The description of the video includes a link to an Indiegogo page that encourages donations to help out Thomas. A $10,000 goal had already been met by Tuesday morning with $13,600 in donations.
