There are a lot of things I could do with a million dollars. I'd invest half of it on properties and starting a business and the other half on charities and foundations.
I don't mean to be the suckup here, but from what I've seen in my life, helping others out always gets you something in return whether mental or physical, especially when you're not looking for anything in return at all.
I am not like such person who gone mad looking to hundered million dollars as it is not big money like there are so many people in the world who dont have to eat, nor they have home and education ( i am talking about world level) so if i use this money for poor people education, food & home at world level then it is very less.
I'd go shopping, invest in local businesses, and start a charitable organization helping to prepare unprivileged youth for a happy and successful adult life. In just that order. I'd also buy a cabin in the woods and do some traveling.
First I would pay all bills to be able to say I owe not debt. Then I would ask my mother if she needed anything. Then I would take a vacation with her and enjoy for a week. I would then sit at home one night with a cocktail in hand and write down who should I help first. Of course I would invest some money too. A little bit of everything.

Here is a list of the world's poorest countries to the richest. 100 million dollars in the world's poorest countries could make a huge difference if you could get it to the people that actually needed it.
House at the beach. Log cabin in the mountains. Stable full of horses. Travel. Donate to charities - for humans and for animals. Create college scholarships for single mothers (I was one for a while). Share the money with my family and my best friends.
I can say alot of things here before I get the money, but if it happened, what I say here may be completely reversed out. Money tends to make people change, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worst. So, it is extremely difficult to pen down what I would do, until and unless the money is in hand. LOL!
A recent thread mentioned giving every US citizen $1,000,000 as a possible solution to the current economic crisis. I wonder, if by some chance you were given that amount of money, would it really make your life...
