A social experiment was set up by the SOS Mayday action network in Norway to raise awareness about the thousands of children suffering in war-torn Syria. It involved an 11-year-old boy – an actor – sitting alone in the freezing cold telling commuters his jacket had been stolen to see how they would react. Check out this experiment:
A hidden camera captured the entire experiment.
What happened over and over is awesome. Almost everyone that passed by would ask the boy if he was alright.
ometimes it took people a few seconds to realize he was alone.
Several people would look around before talking to him.
Some people would even offer their own scarf.
This man let him borrow his coat.
Another random stranger offered her gloves.
his woman gave him her coat even though she was wearing a short-sleeved shirt.
No one hesitated to help this young boy.
This boosted my faith in humanity 10 fold.
It’s not in english but it is very easy to understand. You will notice when you start tearing up.
