Whenever I hear on the news about a lottery that is some ridiculous amount, I think to myself what in the world would I do with all that money. I figured it would be crazy fun to give it away. I would do some serious research to find some people who have lost their jobs, needed their mortgages paid, needed money to pay off medical bills, etc. and just put an envelope of cash in their mailbox or knock on their door, hand it to them and walk away - no strings attached, nothing....cash appearing free and clear. Could there possibly be anything more fun than that?! Wouldn't that be awesome?!
to answer your question...
"Could there possibly be anything more fun than that?!"
... and what para said too, I guess
Ok...but that is all temporary self-indulgences, at least until you realize there is more to life or you're dead, but helping others lasts forever and it is not only fun for you but also fun for others! To each his own, I guess.
$1,000,000 isn't that much nowadays. I love the idea of what you'd like to do, but I'd do it first when I have quite a few $1,000,000 all to myself.
I don't think a million is much. I reckon I could do a bit of good with 100 million though.
If I had 100 mil to share, I would go to Japan and Haiti, find the poorest and build housing using local labor, plant food, supply clean water with individual water purifiers.
Do you think it's safe to be in Japan? I was thinking of helping them all move out, and setting up a replica of Japan, without nuclear reactor, in Australia. There's enough space there. It would be called New Japan, just like New South Wales, you know ...
"What would you do if you had $1,000,000 you had to give away?"
I would find the best organization out there that fights our American medical corruption. And I mean the kind of organization that goes after specific hospitals, ambulance companies, and the worst of the individual thieving doctors.
A million may not be much. But it's $999,999.68 more than what I have right now, so I wouldn't complain.
If I HAD to give it away, I'd try to build up some of the local charities and spread the worth semi-equally for the betterment of everyone: kids, elderly, poor, and anyone else in need.
If I hadddddd to give it away, it would definitely be through random acts of kindness on the street such as handing a random person a $100 bill
If I had a million dollars to give away, I would find recent high school graduates who are bright but can't afford college and pay for their education at the college of their choosing.
Although Japan is in a terrible state, I think I would split the million between 40 different families here in the U.S.A. that are in need of food, clothing and a roof over their heads. We have too many American citizens that have been waiting for a leg up for way too long and the number of homeless is rising at a rapid pace. Not to dismiss or ignor the needs of the Japanese people, but they are getting millions of dollars from many countries including the U.S.A. already.
Give to church, buy my grandma sandals,put up an orphanage.Wise spending.

Why do people test you to see what they can get away with ?

I think we need a 500,000 views accolade! I think the time between the 100,000 views accolade and a million views are spread much too far apart. It seems so much more achievable and makes each author's achievement here a lot more visible.

Have been waiting to hit 5 million for a while, and today the views finally clicked over to 5,001,113 Unfortunately, there's no accolade for 5 million, but there really should be! It's a bloody long wait from 1 to 10 million.

Instead of giving US corporations bailout/loans the government should give each of its citizens $1,000,000 to spend on anything they want within the United States.According to the US Census there are 305 million citizens. $305 million dollar checks going out to people who will spend in the US is a...

Why are hubs suddenly copied by someone else?In the last two days I have ten hubs possibly copied by someone else. Does anyone know what's going on? Some are Editors Choice, some are not. It is difficult to find the duplicates.
