Magician Surprises Veteran with New Car and Year of Rent

After he met the veteran, who always holds a SMILE sign to inspire passersby, Rob Anderson set up a fund so his fans on YouTube could donate to the smiling homeless vet. He raised $40,000, but the ever-humble Alan McCracken only wanted a portion of it, so he could move from Las Vegas to California, where, according to Rob, his is now living happily.

What should he do with the leftover funds? He surprised a Navy vet who was suffering with some health issues, lost his job, and was having trouble paying rent and providing food for his family of four. The beautiful family of Gulf War veteran Johnny Hicks was presented with rent for one year, money for food, furniture and new car, thanks to the humble Alan McCracken and generous strangers who donated to a veteran in need.
