    Yes!  I most certainly would!  If I saw someone with tremendous need, and was sure that they'd use my gift correctly - and towards solving their problems.  I would certainly give them a boost.

    Also, if I saw someone that I thought had tremendous talent, but was having a very hard time getting noticed, or was otherwise struggling financially - I would also certainly donate to their cause.

    I would like to think that I would. I would make sure that my family was taken care of, set up a trust, and share with real causes that don't waste money. I would love to be a philanthropist and share my money so that I could help people with basic needs such as food, clean water, and an opportunity to learn.  Great question!

    I probably would as I believe in 'paying it forward'. You never know how a small amount to you means so much to another person.

    No, I'd give it to charity so that I'd get tax benefits and to help the poor. I'd probably would give most of that to my family, but maybe that's because I'm so stingy with el dinero!

    I would like to think I would do that - just randomly pull a Richard and Emily put someone through school. My entire family would be taken care of and dressed well - kept in coffee, food and water. I would also start a charity of some kind, perhaps save an animal or some poor children.

    Yes I would! Well, let me rephrase. I would give to those in need, predicatred on sound judgement. I would seek to empower others. I would set up  some form of a charity, and perhaps open up a business in an area where jobs are scarce.
    I have always wanted to start a free, community garden in an area where people don't have much access to fresh fruits and veggies.
    Alas, I have plenty of good ideas, but no dinero.

    Yes.  It is extremely difficult today for some to get bye.

    Well, no, if I was that rich I'd be throwing money at research programs to cure cancer, or stem cell research, or whatever rather than hand out cash to a random person. In short, there are people who need it more than you.

    I would not give money away randomly, for no reason, but I would not hesitate to give money to those organizations and people that I felt would put it to good use.  There are many, many worthy causes to which I wish I could afford to make a sizable donation.  I do try to help when and how I can, even though I do not have a big bank account.

    I sure would especially if I had money like Buffett.
