After dealing with all of the financial issues that come with winning a large sum of money I would:


Top off DD's college fund.


Start a coffee shop for my MIL, she's been dreaming about having one for years.


Dump a bunch of money into panflu awareness efforts, there is a distinct lack of advertising on the subject. As a mom it frightens me to think of all the people who don't know anything about it.


Give most of the rest away (I would probably add a few thousand to the retirement accounts and pay off the rest of the mortgage.)


I'm actually pretty content with my life the way it is, I want to die in our house, our vehicles are in good working order, and we have everything we need (today and in the future.) That's probably why I don't actually buy lottery tickets.

I would keep my house, but I would build on to it and buy some of the property around it so that I could buy my daughter and I a horse. I would give money to church for sure. My fiance is great at investing so I'd have him help me there. I'd let him buy whatever antique car he wanted and I would buy myself a fancy SUV.


I'd buy my mom a home, and my oldest a car since she will be driving soon. I'd also adopt or become a foster parent. I think that with all that money, my fiance wouldn't complain too much about doing that. lol

I am from a very poor country. The rest of my family still live there. So most of my money would go to them. They are my reason for starting my own business.


Once they are leberated from poverty, I would start a foundation that cares for children in my country.


Then, my sister always wanted to have a christian clinic that cares for the poor who can't afford going to regular hospitals, so I would make that happen for her.


My next move would be to ensure that my nieces' futures are ensured by creating accounts for them, that they couldn't touch until they were 30 or something. This way they also get to experience hard work before they can cash in.


So many more things to say, but... I'll stop there! When I get there and achieve these things, I'll come back and finish.

I would of course take care of the house, car, college, etc. And then I would enjoy traveling and tithing. Helping people who just need a hand up not a hand out.

My husband and I would
give 90% of it to the 50 Missionaries we know.
5% of it to our list of household
and education needs,
and invest the other 5% in our business to
grow more money!

Hello everyone - this is my first post here! Looks like a great place to be!

If I won the lottery...

- Tithe
- Pay Off Debt
- Buy a new home on more land
- Give our old home to a family that is STILL living in a FEMA trailer from last year's hurricane season
- Save/invest
- Family vacation
- Kids future

I would pay off my family debt, go back to school full time, buy a new house, give some money to my church and charities, and invest.
