If you won the lottery in your state/country, what would you do with it? Not a little one, a BIG one, like US$30million....

If i won in a lottery, part of the money will go for a time deposit account. The monthly interest of which will be donated to any organizations i will support all my life. It will be a lifetime commitment for me. The money deposited will only be intended for that purpose and nothing personal much. Aside from this, as for my family, i want them to experience a convenient life...

I'd donate about a tenth to animal welfare organisations, give half to my parents and put the rest in the bank after a shopping spree. Lol..sorry for the predictable answer.

First thing I will run an Ambulance service free of charge for anyone in need. Then I have a list of thing under charity. I know after all these things also I will be left out with some amount which will be enough for my needs.

First of all I would pinch my self to see whether I am dreaming or not. Secondly I would use a part of them for charity purpose. I would love to donate some for cancer patients and schlorships for children who had become orphans due to a calamity like tsunami etc. Then I would buy gifts for everyone and give a party. I would also invest my money and form a trust for my parents

If I would win the lottery I would pay off all of my debts. Buy everyone of my friends and family members a new car. I would travel a lot. And I would definately donate some to charities. Something to rebuild some homes in New Orleans or Hawaii or cancer research etc...
