5-star dining for the homeless

Sure, the homeless are incredibly thankful to have a fresh meal every day from their local shelters, but they too have emotional needs, desires, and aspirations just like everyone else. So wouldn't it be nice to do something uplifting for them? To treat them like like the wonderful people they are?

Well, that's exactly what prankster Greg Benson did as part of Break.com's Prank It Fwd campaign to perform positive pranks for good causes. He helped turn the Ascencia Homeless Shelter in Glendale California into a 5-star restaurant, complete with fancy decor, menus, waiters, delicious food like filet mignon, and even live classical music. And, to top it off they donated $5,000 to the shelter to help continue to feed those in need.

The looks on the faces of the patrons enjoying this wonderful experience are absolutely priceless. Totally a tear jerker.
