Putulik Qumak told BuzzFeed Canada he has been living on the streets of Montreal for almost two decades. He knew what it was like to be cold, so he thought nothing of giving away his jacket to help out someone else in need.

Qumak’s act of kindness was captured on a “social experiment” video. Montreal filmmaker Angel Azmeer enlisted his younger brother to hold a sign on a busy Montreal street identifying him as a homeless 14-year-old.

Azmeer told BuzzFeed Canada he was inspired to do the video because he spent some time on the streets when he was younger, and he wanted to see who would help a young kid in need.
