Magician and YouTube sensation Rob Anderson surprised Alan McCracken, a homeless veteran, when he approached him and started to tear up his sign. McCracken did not seem to be upset as he watched Rob destroy his sign, even asking if he could keep the magic marker to make another sign.
But before too long, McCracken figured out what Anderson was up to. Rob was a street magician performing a magic trick that ended up with the sign being intact and full of money.
Anderson’s generosity did not stop there. He set up a GoFundMe for McCracken that as of noon eastern had raised over $7,600.
