  1. What a nice story. She was fated to win those. What were the odds of meeting you that night? What were the odds there were 5 loose tickets that she decided to keep for herself? What were the odds the 5 tickets were winning numbers? “Somewhere in her life or childhood she must have done something good”

  2. This magical blessing all started with Nhi & Bot’s episode from last week.

    So she hit 100x jackpot because tickets are vnd 10k. Ive never won more than 10x in my life.

    All five tickets winning 100x is a miracle. So happy for her.

  3. Dude, even though you may look like you’re strung out on drugs, or maybe the water buffalo came and walk all over you at a young age, or that you have this tough man image that you need to uphold… you have a heart of gold. You love much! Your donators too! (Just kidding about the drugs, water buffalo, and tough man part.)

  4. Man you don’t know what huge amount of good things you are doing to these people during tough times like this. You are the kind of person that all people should strive to be. Keep doing what you are doing and stay safe. Cheers
    Edit: oh and cheers to the donors too

    1. Yeah. He’s probably a billionaire who went back to his motherland to donate the income he earns from his investments. Seems like a good guy.

  5. Another great video coming from you Troy! As the financial gap widens between the rich and the poor, the poor people in VN are the ones who struggle the most during the lockdown. That small donation will help her get through the next few months …perhaps you remind me of the story below..

    “One day, an old man was walking along a beach that was littered with thousands of starfish that had been washed ashore by the high tide. As he walked he came upon a young boy who was eagerly throwing the starfish back into the ocean, one by one.

    Puzzled, the man looked at the boy and asked what he was doing. Without looking up from his task, the boy simply replied, “I’m saving these starfish, Sir”.

    The old man chuckled aloud, “Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?”

    The boy picked up a starfish, gently tossed it into the water and turning to the man, said, “I made a difference to that one!”

  6. What ever you want to call this, karma, good luck, law of attraction, budda , god or Angel’s doing their work , this is one of the best demonstrations of how life works and that great seemly impossible things can happen anytime.
    Great work.

  7. …..Nice lady….there’s a good soul in her. Well done THAO TRAN….and OUR MAN Troy too…a video with TRANSLATION…..I LOVE IT.

  8. Cam on Troy for making Thao Tran’s donation video, it is really fantastic to see her get out of debt and get help thru the lottery shutdown.
    This lady should be snapped up by some company, hired and made their spokeswoman at a comfortable wage. She would do a lot of good in many areas of a business.
    Keep up the efforts, they will be your highlights of your life; simply finding those and helping people and documenting it with your speech and raw humor breaks the total sadness of any situation so people see what others are going thru in life..

  9. wow I really like her she seems so genuine…Much respect to you troy .. so cool that it happened to her to win and then run into you again. One of my favorite videos by far

  10. Wow… you brought lady LUCK to her. Another soul uplifted by Troy… Good job bro. Hear what the lady said??? *Malnourish* … It’s time to puff up your face first, go gain some weight Troy… lol…

  11. — and this is Jang it’s not her real name but she’s in debt to some people living in district 7 where she’s living and she doesn’t want to be known and she was even scared to be put on camera so ummmm lets put her on the fu[edit]ng camera.

  12. Beautiful scene.
    And this, people, appears to happen to our society in the west as well with the whole ccrcna panic bullshit.
    Low class struggling families wind up on the streets. Mass layoffs.
    But the environmentalists and Soros dance on the tables..

  13. ….Incredible that the girl is out on the streets when even with a mask, you can tell she is nice- looking and young….No husband ??…..I tell you if she were in America they’d be lined up to have her……and she even knows when she sees a malnourished person !!

  14. Even Im from the North but i can hear U clearly so dun be afraid of ur Vnese pronunciation.
    Thanks so much for doing such meaningful things for those who are not as lucky as others. Ur stories’ve made me emotional.
    GOD bless U!

  15. She looks like she’s cute, and she has a nice voice as well. Someone said that one of the little girls sounded like a bird. This woman does too.

  16. Troy has the worst luck having some what decent Vietnamese plus a Ca Mau accent makes it difficult at times for me to parse out whether it’s your limited Vietnamese or that I can’t understand your Viet with a Call Mau accent. Haha keep up the good work.

  17. Troy my good man, you are building up your good karma points. I appreciate people like yourself who help others with compassion. ✌

  18. TROY. Call me crazy but have you got any uploads missing ? I’m sure you had an upload with “ she died “ in the title or somewhere ?

  19. Great videos Troy! Definitely going be tough for those people over there with this Covid situations! Over in U.S., we’ve safety nets. Lockdowns, we’ll receive stimulus checks. If laid-off or quit due to Covid-19, we have unemployment insurance checks to cover our expenses. Also during this time, landlords and mortgages can’t evict anyone nor foreclose any houses! P.S. Wish she didn’t borrow the money from loan sharks, those guys charge outrageous fees and if you don’t pay them, they can get nasty as I’ve seen in Vietnamese movies.

  20. Hi Troy,

    I’ve been watching a lot of your videos lately and feel very sorry for the hard working people in Vietnam who are affected by the corona virus shutdown. I am donating a very small amount to help out the next deserving person you see on the street. The only thing I ask is that person does another good deed to the next person he/she meets. Thank you in advance and stay safe out there. Leon

  21. I just stumbled across your channel the other day. It is nice to see a kind Aussie doing good deeds in Vietnam. Keep up the good work!

  22. Thanks for helping people that are deserving. I donated today using the link. I encourage anyone that sees these videos to support people in desparate need.

  23. The thing is, if these people made it to America, they would do much better.
    Why ???
    Because they are willing to work.
    Their culture teaches them to work.
    From childhood till old.
    Most Americans don’t work till they are out of school, or not even after they get out of school.
    But is scammers in every country.
    Have to watch out for those type.
    Those women would live like queens in America.
    Because they need very little to live on like American women.
    American women are spoiled, and they don’t even know it.
    These women would be crying if they had a yard of their own to grow a garden in.
    These woman have to go out everyday all day to scrounge money to survive.
    And they have been doing it all their life sense childhood.

  24. I think your eyes always look wind burned, to much wind from all the scooter riding.
    But i never thought you looked like you was on drugs.
    I always thought you looked like a movie star.
    And some people are just haters.
    Treat other people mean for fun.
    They just hate their lives and take it out on others.
    You are a good person, don’t worry about mean people making fun of your looks.

  25. Really nice touching story.i hope because of the virus we bring back humanity into this human world.compassion must be the new normal as a species

  29. thank you for doing this,,,but in the end the people need to rise and topple the ones doing this to them,,,,,,the people in power that is,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,sacrifice needs to be made,,,,millions are dying and not doing anything about it,,,,

  30. this woman brought tears to my eyes too; sometimes It just takes lifting people off the ground for them too fly again. Thank you too the donors and you as well Troy. You are touching others 1000s of miles away

  31. She said that we also human if we think like this so there will be no one poor in this world no one will cry my teachers says that happiness are hide in small things so help someone who is needy if we think like this so I think it will be the big Change to change this world
