The powerball jackpot is up to 186 million dollars tonight 10/19/13. So imagine if you won what would you do then?Move to another country? Buy your own island???travel all over the world???
What would you do?
c'mon everyone go for it. Unleash your dreams and what you would do if you financially could.
None of you have hopes or dreams or are you all independently wealthy?
I would buy a car that doesn't break down on the freeway as often.
I would pay off my kids school loans, pay off bills, move closer to the town we work in, keep my job cause I would turn into a complete loser if I didn't have a job (which is a reflection of my flaws, not a comment on those who are not employed.) I would do some real good... as long as there are poor and destitute and parentless children in the world, I don't need a mansion. I don't know... the basic stuff you'd do with money.
Thanks Beth. You have a huge heart in wanting to help others.
Aw, thanks moneyfairy... but i doubt much different than most others.
Well some people can be very selfish where money is concerned. But having never had alot I know what that feeling is like so I would definitely help alot of people I know that are in dire need:(single moms stuggling,seniors w/no children to look after them etc... the forgotten people. It would be fun to be a philanthropist. There was once a newspaper article of a man who was incognito and used a pseudo name but people would write into his column and he would help them. This went on for about a year. One of my senior clients told me about it. I thought that was a cool idea, also being at the supermarket and gifting someone in need with free groceries, that would be fun, just to see the smiles on their faces.
That's awesome. Yeah, I think it's good to go thru hard times cause it can develop empathy. We always want to give our kids these "smooth sailing" rides, but sometimes they fail to develop character b/c of it.
So very true, until they know the actual worth of a $ they don't learn to save and respect how much effort it took to get it. I housecleaned,nannied and babysat from the time I was 9-19yrs. old. it definitely gives you a greater respect for your parents and all thier efforts towards you!!! My little brothers did a paper route and my sister worked in a nursing home ....so we have definitely learned a good work ethic. It is very important!!! you sound like an awesome parent.
I would travel all over the world indeed, and I would buy little cozy apartments in the cities and places I like the most. I would give money to my friends and family as well
Okay, here's the list:
1. Help out my father financially so he can retire and doesn't have to be stressed about money.
2. Buy a house with horse stalls, land, and direct access to nice trails. And an arena. And a truck. And a trailer. And at least two horses.
3. Book that 20k a head cruise to Antarctica I've been dreaming about for years.
4. Give money to a close friend so she can move to an apartment away from her horrid landlady who's behavior literally makes her sick.
Then I'd relax and enjoy my new lifestyle in which I only have to write what I want. With horse shows. And travel. And the partner able to quit his job.
I don't think I'd actually need the full amount, and I'd probably end up giving a fair bit of it away.

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...

If you could give away a million dollars at this very moment, how would you disburse the funds? Keep in mind you do not need it and cannot keep it for yourself?

I am in a situation where I am quickly running out of my savings, paying my bills, and, all that. So, I went looking for avenues to ask for donations at another website. And the result has not been good at all....
