(Scroll down for video) Several people have reported that a homeless looking man has been giving out rent money to random people in the streets of Canada.

The mysterious looking man seen on the streets of Vancouver, is rewarding random acts of kindness to those in need.

The man has been giving away hundreds of dollars to people who offered to help him.

Yogi Omar said that he offered to help the man, who was sitting on the street corner, when he asked for some change. As the two men talked, the homeless man revealed that he is not really homeless.

“I was like ‘what?’” Omar said.

Omar said the man told him that he and his family are involved in the Random Acts of Kindness Project. The project aims to help people who are kind to the homeless.

The man asked Omar how much he pays in rent each month.

” I said: ‘$469 exactly.’ He just took out the money and gave me $469 in exact change,” Omar said.

The money could not have come at a better time for Omar. Several weeks ago, Omar learned that he would need to fly to China, in order to visit his father, who is suffering from terminal cancer.

There is no way to find out who this wonderful stranger is. Omar has only one thing to tell him, “thank you.”

Omar is not the only person who received one month’s rent. Similar stories have been popping up on social media sites over the past several weeks.
