What would YOU do if you won the lottery?

We play the lottery here at work – a dollar here and there when the jackpot is over $100 million. I don’t think that any of us ever expect to get that lucky, but my philosophy in regards to this situation is that if my coworkers end up winning the lottery, I don’t want to be left behind.

So while my co-workers and I joke that we’re all going to make a mass exodus up to the north woods of Minnesota once we win our jackpot, I hope that if I ever won the lottery, I would have the grace that this Canadian couple had when they won over $11 million last July and went on a “$11 million dollar spending spree.” While they kept a portion of the money, they gave some to family and gifted the rest to charity.

Happy Friday!

  1. HA! That’s the same reason why I play here. Although, our jackpots never get that high up here in Canada. We have the Lotto Max that maxes out at $50 million, then starts having “max millions”, prizes valued at $1M each.

    Living in Canada, I wasn’t aware of the couple’s story that you linked to! It’s a great show of how generous people can be, even after going through a rough time. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’d quit my job and then I would travel the world looking for those who need some money. You know those human interest stories on the news or in the newspaper where someone needs $5k to save their house or a school’s band that needs $3k to go and perform at the Sugar Bowl. Stuff like that.

  3. I would take care of family first and a couple friends, one of whom has CF and a butt load of hospital bills. I’d put enough away for myself so that I wouldn’t have to work if I didn’t want to. And then probably donate the rest to specific charities that I like.
