I would pay off my bills first then help out my parents, my brother and sister and my husband and mine best friends. I feel that helping out family is so important. My best friends have helped us out the last few months when we were struggling and if I can I would love to return the favor. I am hoping to find a job soon so I can get things done with the house that really need to be done. Our house is 27 years old and there are so many things that need to be repaired. I am not sure how much longer things will hold up.

Well for one I wouldn't give any to the people who didn't help me when I needed it. Those people aren't worth my time. Mmmm if I really needed to donate some money I would probably donate some to this friend of mine who wants to research a cure for cancer when he graduates. Mostly because I feel that he is a competent enough person for me to trust that my money is going to a good cause, and also because well, he's my friend.

I think that a few money should distributed those who are like you before. And then spent the left behind.

I would donate some of the money to the charity. I guess around 25% to 30%. The rest, I would invest it in a bank to earn an interest. That way, I would never need any help from others when I need money.

Are you asking if we were ever in the situation where we needed money but not many or no one offered, but then we suddenly won the lottery, how would we disperse the money or would we even disperse it to those who turned us down? Well let answer you in two different ways. The first way is emotionally. In an emotional sense, I would be very angry and hurt, and would want to get back at those who didn't help me by not giving them any of the money I won. I'd also think to rub it in their face because well, I have money now, enough to go around, but yet I won't do that because they didn't help me. Now for the rational answer. Rationally, I would think, 'did they give me a reason for not giving me money?' or 'Is it possible they are tight on money as well?' 'Did they offer any other way to assist me?' or 'were they downright dirty and rude to me?' I would distribute the money as I saw fit. Maybe $100 or so to each person I asked for help. If they gave me a reason, or even if they didn't but were nice about it, I would give them a bit. If they helped me in another way, I would might give them a little more money. Those are the two ways I think I would react. I would first be emotional and carry on the hurt I felt at the rejection of money, but then I'd get my senses about me and disperse the money as I think that it would be better to do that. Everyone is in such a econonmical upset as it is right now.

I would most definitely donate some of the money that I had received to charities. The charities that I would decide to donate money to would be the ones that help the people that are truly hopeless in this world. I would donate some to St. Jude's Children's Hospital for Children's Cancer research and I would also donate some of the money to a nursing home that is in our state called Home of the Innocents because that is the nursing home for children in our state. I feel that among all people in the world children are the most innocent and the most helpless.
