Watch Heartwarming Reactions As Teen Gives 100 Hamburgers to Homeless

Homelessness and hunger are growing problems throughout the United States -- especially in large metropolitan areas.

The issue is so grand that it's often difficult to imagine that just a few people could make a difference. Lance Stewart and Adin Kolansky, however, decided to do their part in solving these issues, and they are hoping that their selfless act of giving will inspire others to spread a similar kindness.

The pair went into a Los Angeles McDonald's, spent $151 on 100 McDouble sandwiches, and proceeded to hand the burgers out to homeless people.

They didn't retire when the sandwiches ran out -- instead, they went to a nearby drugstore and bought even more food to hand out.

Stewart, 18, uploaded a video of the act to his Facebook, which soon spread and gained nearly 2 million views. The excited and inspired way that the Internet is reacting makes it seem like society as a whole might be turning towards a new leaf of charity and sympathy, slowly but surely moving towards solving the homelessness epidemic.
