    If you had 20 million dollars what would you do with it?

    Just trying to figure out what people would do with their money because I certainly have many great things to do with it if ever I had that much. What would you do?

    Some people will think I'm just saying this to make myself sound good, but I really would end up giving most of it away. I'd find worthwhile charities to donate to, I'd give a bunch to my family, and help my friends who need the monetary assistance. Don't get me wrong, I'd also do a lot of things I've always wanted to do, I'd have a nice house, etc. I just can't see why I'd need to keep that much money for myself.

      What kind of charities would that be, Shiela?

      Mostly children's groups that support the neglected/abused, hospital funds for families who can't afford medical bills, that sort of thing. If I didn't give to a group, I'd go out and find the people and give the money right to them.

    I'd give most of it away asap to family/friends/charity, as anyone with more money than they could possibly need is greedy..I couldn't have millions in the bank when kids are starving somewhere, & i know that's easy to say but i do mean it, & only i could ever really know that i mean it (unless it happened of course)lol..I remember a line Joe Rogan said: "winning the lottery could, & probably would ruin a person"..Money isn't evil, but the pursuit of more money than we need is..Oprah has 3 billion in the bank!, how satisfied is she?, is she "content" knowing she's rich, or as i like to say "greedy"..Or would she be much better off, giving it all away to save the kids in Africa?..Which would give us the most contentment when you really think about it?..So a real person would have to give most if not all of it away, because it's not actually theirs but it's some starving kids money.

      If everyone did it, every one in the world would have what they need.

      Cetainly you can't help all the starving in the world, right? So how would you determine who's deserving to get helped and who's not?

    I'd get a apartment, fix my car, and run for U.S. senate or representative. I'd spend very little of it on the campaign, most would go to getting homeless people off the street in America. I would also start a non-profit business to add more jobs to my district.

      I'm afraid you'd have to wait awhile before running for rep. or senator. Minimum ages are 25 and 35.   smile

    First I would buy all my children homes, so they would never be homeless. THen I would go on A mission for God and I would buy a huge Motor Home, and travel all over the use helping anyone who needed it.

    We would keep traveling for sure ! I wouldn't give any of it to the charities that can afford to advertise on TV or pay bosses a lot of money but would oversee projects like building schools,wells and fund a project to help children who need life saving operations etc . I would also give my 3 daughters a decent amount each..
