Kids decide between helping the homeless or buying ice cream. What will they choose?

One of the difficulties of being homeless — besides being without shelter or reliable food — is the feeling of being invisible. So often we walk past the homeless on the sidewalk, avoiding eye contact and often pretending they aren’t there.

But what does this behavior teach our kids? And do their open hearts and trusting natures cause them to act differently? One group staged a social experiment to find out, giving kids a dollar and setting up hidden cameras to see what they would do with it once they saw a homeless man on the street near an ice cream stand.

Watch the video below to see how the kids reacted — and be prepared for a few heartwarming surprises…
