Of course this is a crazy question to ask but just an "if". If you're lucky to win lotto everyday how will you spend those millions to help improve the Philippines?

i would fund scholarships for the poorest and committed children to get higher education from the best universities. This would help them achieve the best quality education and do their best to help improve our nation. This would help create the new generation of well educated people in the fields of politics, industry and business which will bring up the socio-econmic status of the country and help the standard of living the the generations to come.

you didnt get the point...THIS WOULD HELP CREAT THE NEW GENRATION OF WELL EDUCATED PEOPLE IN DIFFERENT FIELDS TO BRING UP OUR SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATUS...meaning that is the lacking factor in Philippines that needs to be boost up inorder for them not to go and work abroad....take china and taiwan for example...they educate their top students in top universities around the world and make them work for their country once they finish.

As crazy as it is, I'll have a crazy answer too. I'll use the money to improve myself first, I'll take the best college and masteral courses then work abroad. Once I'm rich, I'll put up a business here that will help employ people, in that way I'm helping people earn money for their families. And maybe buy some medical equipments for kids with cancer confined in government hospitals.

"take the best college and masteral COURSES"...you used plural to that...that would take you a lot of years to finish it...hope you get to finish it and still have time to be rich and help Philippines...not all degrees gives you big salary in the US...usually doctors now go back to school to take up nursing courses...you may be a doctor here but in US, you are not....there's my two cents on that.

Win the lotto everyday? That IS a crazy question. Well, I'd improve myself first and help all my loved ones before I help others. If I will help others I want it to be arranged so that I can personally see that the money does indeed go to those who need it. Also, I'd be saving it up. Imagine winning it everyday; If the minimum payout is 3 million psos, then in a month's time you have won 90 million!! Keep doing that for six months and you will have a bankrupt government!

How many millions for example? A house and lot worth a million nowadays is very small for a family of 6 members. An ordinary vehicle and incidental expenses is about a million also. A business capital from which the family could get a quite steady income might be a million also. The balato and other charity give aways especially to relatives might reach a million also. And there are still other miscellaneous expenses to improve the family especially for the education of the children. For the family and relatives, how many millions are necessary to lift them up? It's good if the community if helped. Will there be anything left to improve the Philippines in general? And how? GMA and the billionaires do not even care with their powers and money to really improve the Philippines. It's really nice to see the Philippines progress and people do their share towards the attainment of such dreamed progress.

Why would I spend those millions to help improve my country? If I can win the lotto everyday, I'd save up until I have enough to BUY the country, after which I'll abolish the PCSO (knowing that it's a hole in the country's pocket, imagine giving out millions to a random citizen), or at least tweak it so "the house always win." Kidding aside, there's a problem with how one should want to spend millions in luck money on improving his own country. I personally don't think the majority of the people deserve to be helped, especially those who depend on others instead of fighting the good fight and trying to live on their own. So, I'll be my selfish self and use the millions to improve my life, improve myself, and give opportunities in the form of work to only those who deserve it. No one deserves to earn something they don't pay for in the form of sweat and time. Unless there's some kind of flawed situation where one gets millions everyday from some sweepstakes office.

IF i was lucky enough to win the lotto every day i could eventually help out most countries in the world. Firstly though i would make sure me and my family are taken care of then i would help out people in third world countries and make sure they have the bare essentials and more to survive in this world.
