Everyone always has their own dream. Some people wish that they could win the lottery then they will use that money to buy a luxurious house or go to travel around the world.For me, if I had 2 million dollars now, I would use it to do a lot of things.First, I will buy a motorbike, so that I can go to study easily. Second, I would buy a big house for my family. Third, I would donate some of this money to the charitable organization in my country so they will use it to help the poor people. Fourth,I would buy the most up-to-date laptop in this world. Oh!It's very great to talk about it...How about you? What would you do with this money?

If I had two million dollars. I would buy a doublewide home for my husband and I, would buy two cars, some supplies for said home, and for the rest we would put it in our savings and give some to my husband's parents who have taken care of us for the last two years.

I'd buy myself a car and give the rest to my parents and keep a 1000 then the rest i'll give to my folks so they can just start a business and stop going overseas most of the time.

I'd give 30% of it to charity or to church as a "thank you" for giving me such blessing. The rest would probably go to payments for credit card debt, a new house and a car, I'll also give some to my parents and to my hubby's family. Save the rest of it for my daughter's future. Ofcourse we would also opt to travel specifically to US, Europe and Australlia since these are my dream destinations.

Well! I also dream of having lots of money.I actually really need lots of money,you know, as there are so many things I have to do .If I get two million dollars,the first thing I have to do is to decorate my beautiful house and make it more beautiful.Last year, at the end we have bought a good house and so now I want to do some interior designing in it.I have to buy a new dining table thats most important!I have to buy a good mobile of my own and good beautiful dresses for my parents, my brothers. Also,I need money to go to a beauty clinic,I think the whole of the money will be spent on all this,is that right, isn't it???

1. Get off this daggone mountain! 2. Buy at least 3 houses, one for hubby and me, one for his son and one for my daughter, we'd help the other two pay off their houses. 3. Buy new cars, hybrids for sure. 4. Help our kids, financially. 5. Start a trust fund for our grandkids college education, there's 15 grandkids. 6. Carefully look over charities, pick one or two and set up a trust for them. This has been a dream of mine for a long time, I just my husband would co-operate and WIN one a lottery!

I love to think about things like this. The first thing that I would do is buy a small place at the beach. I just love the ocean. I would set aside enough money to travel and to ensure that I would be financially comfortable for the rest of my life and with the remainder, I would set up a foundation to contribute to a variety of charitable causes. Let's just hope that our two milion dollar dream comes true!

If I have 2 million, I will definitely buy house and lot (for my whole family) and put up a business. Of course, I will help those people who are in need. I will definitely give some of this money to charities, or give some educational scholarships to deserving underprivilege students.

Thanks for your idea to give some money for student to apply for scholarship.

If I had 2 million dollars, I would give the 1 Million to my country's poor people~ :3 And the other million, I would buy my family a big nice house and a car. And I will travel around the world and make my own production company. i would travel to search talents and make them debut as a group of singing idols and I would make them wonderful music videos. Also, i would eat the most expensive food on earth and adopt all stray dogs. I think my money will be worth it :3
• Cambodia

Yeah!You have a wonderful dream. You said that you want to have your own production and hire some talents to be singing idols, but why don't you be the singing idol by yourself? I think you can:). So let try and your wish will become success!

I wish I had the 2 million dollars right now! First of all, I would pay off every debt I have. Then I would buy a new house and car. I would go every place that I had ever wanted to go. Then I would buy anything I wanted that I had ever denied myself. If there is anything left after all of this, I would help out family members who need financial help.

Ok, I hope it will come to you and help you solve all of your problem that you have currently. At least, you have this wonderful dream, and it will encourage you to struggle for your life.

I have plenty of ideas and plans with that 2 million dollars. My first plan is to buy out the ancestral property of my father and build a high rise residential for my parents, siblings and other family members who have no permanent houses, most especially, those who are old. It will look like a home for those who cannot afford to have their own house. Second, I will give 10% of that 2 million to the Missionaries of Charity. Thirdly, I will buy 10 cars to convert it in taxi for those people who wants to own a taxi but doesnt have the capital. I will hire them as driver, they will have to pay a certain amount and after 2 years they will eventually own the taxi. My fourth plan is for my 2 children, to have each a pension plan worth 500,000.00 each so that whatever might happen to me and my husband, they will have something for their studies. And finally, I will put up a convenient store wherein my employees are from the poorest of the poor.

You have a good business idea. Wish you can run a taxi business of your own.

Maybe if my Dad is still alive and I'm still in college or maybe even employed with a decent job then my answer would be to splurge the money on shopping for clothes, shoes, bags, etc. and traveling alone. But the situation has changed and I would like to think that I have somehow matured and with all my financial problems and worries about the future if I have $2 million I would buy a house (or build my dream house), buy a condo unit, buy 2 cars, invest on businesses and save some in the bank. How I wish!

So what kind of your dream house? Can you describe it to me and all of us?
• Philippines

its actually impossible, but if really given a change to have a 2 million dollars on my wallet??? OMG, I can do a lot of thing for that. First, i will build a house for my parents in our province and build a resort there. Second, i will be sure to make our business grow... Third, I will buy a lot of things i like which i haven't got especially a branded bags, makeup and lots of girly stuff :). Lastly, I will save some of it... ;)

Oh! Having a 2M dollar is a big money that you can buy anything you need and your want in life. But remember money is like a liquid that can easily melt like a cheese. Money can't buy happiness but it will add more happiness. If you have that money in life, be careful, it might be for nothing. Read my website it all about managing money http://malen11.webs.com/ and in know you can learn many things i handling money.

Why not buy only one big house and live together with your parents? Because you will have to take care of them, right?
