If you were given a million dollars what would you do with it? Would you spend it all on yourself, give some to charity, help out a needy person or animals? I'd like to know. Responses will be rated.

I would not change my life style much. I would pay off all my debts, and be able to help other people and animal charities, and my church. Blessings, M&M

I would first pay off my debt, set up an IRA for each one of my children for their college education, and purchase the christmas tree farm of my dreams!! I would make some real estate investments and form a nonprofit organization to help orphaned children in Africa. As a homeschooling mom I would plan a trip to a different country every year so that my children could learn more about the world around them and become empathetic to the global needs of others.

I would first start with giving to my immediate family, outside family then friends. After I would go to Africa donate to schools and hospitals. I would then invest into many differnet things. And last but not least plan a hell of a vacation to take once a year for me and my peps for the rest of our lifes. SisterLove

First off I would get myself out of debt. Then I would adopt a needy family and help them out. It's a really great program to get into. My cousin's family was adopted this last year at christmas time. They recieve alot of nice things and money for grocreys. The kids didn't have to go without a christmas. So that's what I would do.

I didn't realize there was such a program. It sounds like a great program to get into, is it all over or just in your area?

I would give part to Shriner's Children's Hospital in Philadelphia (My daughter is a patient there, and they have done so much for her) Some to The Ronald McDonald House charity (We stay there for our daughter's surgery) I would give money to my family, friends, set up money for my children to go to college. Invest some, do some repairs to the house, a truck for hubby. I would also spread out donations to medical research. Lastly, I would keep money on hand, and hand it out to people of need. (That is IF I ever had that money. :) No, no...Lastly, I would by the rights to The View, and fire them all. LOL

Very commendable that you would donate to charities. I've found that people who have had illnesses in their family are more likely to donate than those that don't. I'm not saying this is true in all cases but in many cases. Like the comment on The View, LOL.
