As we all know, ’tis the season to be jolly. But, sadly, not everyone is lucky or fortunate enough to be able to spend the holidays as they deserve.
One magician set out to change that.
, a London-based magician, took to the streets of his home city to spread some Christmas cheer by doing what he does best: magic.
In the above video, the magician approaches a homeless panhandling couple and asks if he can take the change out of their hat, where they’re storing money.
They agree, and Ryan shakes the hat, somehow turning the loose change into larger bills.
The incredibly sweet gesture left the couple nearly speechless; their gratitude is obvious.
At the end of the video, which was created in collaboration with The LAD Bible
, the magician begs viewers to do their part this holiday season and donate to those less fortunate if they can.
This is the sort of message we should be spreading during the holidays: not one of consumerism or greed, but one of selflessness and aid.
