Personal donation or massive lottery? Well? Just a thought.

If one chose to donate a portion of their earnings to another member of myLot is this even acceptable or recommended? I don't know but sometimes I feel like sharing and other times I am as selfish as the next person who finds that dollar bill on the ground while walking casually by. Some days I want the money for myself but other times I think about giving to someone who might need it more than me. Hmm. I tried to see if this was possible on two other sites but they went belly up before I got an answer. Have you ever donated your bank or a portion of it to another user at this or another site or do you think this form of charity better done so in the manner of a myLot Lotto? If there was a random drawing, say of one out of all those who chose to go for it, you have to give a dollar of your own earnings to the pot and then when the rest of the users at this site wanted to say, Okay I am done. Now lets spin the wheel of fortune and see if just one lucky dog gets the winning lotto ticket and reap the rewards of a myLot jackpot lottery?

It is a very good idea. I know I've seen several on here who it seems could benefit from my online earnings.

Well, it was just an idea of mine. Maybe one day it will happen but probably not because it was my idea not somebody else's. lol.

You can always donate from your pay pal account. You would have to run your idea by the admins first. I don't know if they would go for it.

I wonder why they wouldn't go for it. It would be a windfall for one or a few lucky people and if this was a monthly thing, more writers would want to participate in hopes of being one of these few lucky myLot lottery winners. The incentive to get a special lucky bonus for a few lucky of the draw would actually promote more activity here.

@lookatdesktop I know that in summertime people are off living life so it will be hard to get good conversations going. That might help.

I would give to one person in here who could really use the help.

That sounds exciting. It really takes me a while to get a dollar, so maybe 50 cents?

A dollar is a good round figure.

I have not done it on a site like mylot but some of us on another site a few years back got together by email and then Yahoo IM and each donated for a member who was in some deep financial trouble and we sent her a gift basket of fruits to eat for her and her daughter. She really appreciated that.
