For This YouTube Prankster, Giving is Also Receiving

In today's edition of the Good Stuff, we see that giving may, in fact, be receiving. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

A YouTube prankster who typically makes people uncomfortable decided to use his platform to make a difference.

Dressed as a homeless person, he approached strangers with a cardboard sign and begged for change.

He was repeatedly brushed off, ignored and was even told by a few passersby to "get a job."

Yet, as seen in the video, a few gave what they could.

In turn, they received not only their donation back, but twenty dollars.

The experiment in instant karma perhaps teaches us not to judge a book by its cover.

If you have #GoodStuff news, let us know.
