I lived on the streets of LA for 48 hours

What would you do if you lost everything? Ammar decides to live on the streets of LA for 48 hours in hopes gain a better appreciation for the simple things that he takes for granted in life.
All proceeds from this video will go to www.safeplaceforyouth.org to provide care and support to youth experiencing homelessness.
* Ammar was by no means trying to simulate homelessness or pretend like he knows what being homeless feels like, he was just trying to deprive himself of everything and see how he'd handle it.

  • I'm just going to be honest, no one on this Earth takes anything to be greatful , we all do things and need thing that require someone to do something for as little as nothing. Take this in to context, rhino have went extint because of humans more specifically the black rhino and no one cares but all of sudden people care, and same with homeless people... At least they live in a place way safer than other country's think about we are not greatful no matter what u do. We came into this world with nothing and leave only with the memories we made. 🤔

  • My mom has been homeless in California for 15+ years this time around. I lived "homefree" six months so as to experience even a portion of the struggle she still faces. I often wish to help my mom. I have lived in North Dakota & Minnesota for over 20 years. I haven't seen my mother since i was nine. 24 years without her and not being able to talk to her much at all :( I did call the city she lives in around mother's day. They said someone saw her two weeks ago. So that is "good" news! I miss her. I wish she could meet her grandkids and get her life sorted so she can become safer and more protected. I love you Mom!

  • So I love this video because it has a great message about not taking what you have for granted but cmon, Ammar you are playing it up you spent a few hours in LA and you’re super lonely and being torn apart? You’re scared because thisnt isn’t a way of life for you, most of the fear you have is different than other homeless people’s fear. They’re probably more scared about when they’ll have there next meal etc

  • Everyone’s so judgy about why he didn’t walkes into an starbucks and asked for water. Truth is that even tho water must not be denied to anyone, when you’re real homeless you get cero special attention, sometimes you even get shut down so that’s the thing about this experiment. He wasn’t bad looking but a lot of homeless people won’t even try to ask in an establishment for water bc they know they’re being judge. So just contemplate the idea of this video, Ammar did great, the message behind this is so real. (S/o to the person who left the food almost full; Ammar was able to eat but you shouldn’t be wasting food)

  • on the roof was probably a good idea, I live in a rural area and one night I was at my friends place and left to catch the bus home, left his house , caught my first bus to get to the stop where I would change into a different bus to realise I had missed the last bus until the next day, 13 years old, Broken ankle, climbed my way onto a roof ( which I threw my crutches onto before climbing up, glad I could climb it haha ) and slept there the night, I am from Australia, we don't even live in a dangerous area but I felt way safer. I don't trust people enough to willingly loose consciousness in public haha

    • Oh and also once some guy wanted to fight me at my friends house, didn't want to do it and no one was sticking up for me so I ended up going to the local maccas as my options were basically fight, continue to get punched while not fighting back or just leave, it was there that I seen a bunch of cops eating food, I was only young at this point too probably still 13 but I had told them I had gotten lost and needed a lift home ( my house was over an hour away, I was a shithead kid and would travel from my country town to the city to hang around with people I probably shouldn't have been ) they told me they would help me, but once they finished eating they all just got up and walked out without saying anything to me, I ended up sleeping in a maccas play ground thing in some slippery slide until morning came around and I could catch the train to my uncles house a town away. didn't want to show up at his place in the middle of the night haha.

  • If I was homeless id either just wait for people to order take out and snatch it from them, or go to jail which im sure my food snatching would help me accomplish. Not very nice but if I was homeless the last thing id be worried about is a person that has a house and money missing out on his maccas dinner haha.

  • I went to LA a few years ago, it was the first stop on my gap year (from Aus). I remember just wanting to leave the whole city as I was so overwhelmed by the amount of homelessness everywhere you went, even in the day time, it broke my heart, and equally hardened it by being frustrated over not knowing how to help ALL the people asking for money/food/help :( Bless you dude! Hopefully one day I can come back to LA and see positive changes in the city

  • I'm actually going to Japan for college next semester in August, and this will be my first time away from home. so during this trip, I will learn what it's like to not have my parents with me all the time. and be surrounded by people who don't know a lot of English. I believe this will be an amazing eye-opener to just how much I rely on my parents for things like meals, etc. and just being there for me when I need them. But it also extremely excited!

    • Mythical Playz almost all homeless people aren’t born homeless. They usually have a jacket before whatever happens as well as a backpack. Some may actually carry a flashlight but that’s rare. Every single homeless person I have seen has had a jacket or blanket and a backpack at least.
