just in case you got lots of money. would you spend it to explore the outer space? or spend it to help the poor and the needy? which do you prefer?

I'd defintely spend it on the poor and needy. Its the unselfish option and would achieve so much more than going into space. To be honest the thought of going into space doesn't excite me- I think it must be pretty scary.

I don't think i will waste money exploring an outer space, when people from my own planet require so much help... I would spend that money to help the poor and needy people of my planet...

Of course I'd spend it on the needy and not the greedy.

i would rather spend it on the needy. its one of my dreams to be able to make someone smile because i gave help. i would love to be able to help people especially those who are in need/.

if i gained lots of money and i already uplift my family's situation as of the present i would probably build a foundation for the orphans or provide shelters for the street children and children of swampy areas. i would probably build charitable institutions that will provide foods, medical, emotional services to the needy....... it will be a real success and the greatest achievement i will have in my whole life........

if those are the only two choices, then i would spend my money helping the poor and needy. exploring space is good but i don't really want to explore space because i'm afraid of heights.

I already help the poor and needy as much as I can. I wouldnt want to go to space but I would like to travel. But I would travel and help the needy as I travel.

I would give it to the poor and needy, who cares what is out there in outter space? Earth and the people on it are what really matters.

I would spend it here on earth to make our world a better and fairer place. If there were other beings out there I dont think Id be proud to introduce them to our world the way it is a the moment. Its so unbalanced and un equal I dont think anyone would want to know humans who behave as some humans do. Charity begins at home.

There is a lot to explore in space but what good would it do when we can't even take care of ourselves. I would spend it on helping the poor and needy, definitely.

I already help the poor and needy. I imagine that if I came into a lot of money, I would continue doing the same. I'm not that interested in outer space. There is still so much for us to learn from what we have hear on earth.
