Hello mobhomeir! If ever I win at a lottery draw (which is impossible because I never bet there) I would probably start a new business. Money is like water. It will eventually go away without noticing it. So we really have to invest it in order for it to grow and recycle. Of course, sharing to others are there. I will help those people who are in need.

He he he yes money can could really make us insecure specially if its going to be lots of money that's why some people go away to another place that nobody knows them and as what you said you also would go away...well of course for our own safety and the good thing there is you never forgot those in needs because I know you believe t in the tv commercial "Share your Blessings"...cheers

oh well, I even would want to stay here in the Philippines. I even told my husband that we live here but he said he can't leave his job there. I told him that I can teach here and he can teach too so we will be able to survive day by day..but he only laughed..he said we will leave here when we retire so we can have our monthly pension and we won't need to work anymore..

First thing I would do is quit my job and then hold a big party and invite all my fellow workers. I would tell my boss what I really think of him and would enjoy doing it. Then I would just enjoy the rest of the win and donate some money to charity.

the first thing that I would do is pay up all my bills and I would certainly move and get the things I want in my house. Once that would be taken care of I would have to sit down and think what I could do with the rest of the money as it will depend on how much I had

Depends on the size - but if it is really big I would probably quit my job...or maybe take a long vacation. I am a workaholic (I know I'm weird) and take a VERY long vacation. Maybe one of those world cruises. That would be awesome. I love to travel and that would definitely be my first thing to do. I would also take along a few family members that have always been there for me and maybe a friend or two that I feel deserve a trip for their great friendship.

I never bought some lotteries, but what if it happens, firstly maybe i will deposite a half of it to the bank. It can earns interest every month. And will use the remain to buy a simple home, help my family, and little bit have fun hehe.

First of all, I would lose half of it to taxes (lol). Then I would use some of it to pay off my college tuition, and put the rest in savings. I would put the rest in a tax sheltered annuity, but now-a-days, I trust NO ONE with my money except ME. lol

If the chance to win the jackpot prize in a lottery, I will definitely invest it wisely. I won't be spending much during the first month after winning so I can think wisely as to where will I invest my money.

The first thing I would do is pay off my debts. Then I would have fun with the money. I'd give some to my family, donate some to charity, and buy lots of great things! But you have to play the lottery to win and unfortunately I just don't play that often. lol I wish our lottery went towards the education system, maybe I'd play more? Since I am a teacher.

I keep seeing every day on the TV, newspapers, magazines, and other forms of media about people in different parts of the world who are suffering, lack of food , shelter, medicine, and so on. And, how the charity organizations are trying to help those people. It's so miserable ! If I win a big lottery draw, the first thing I would do is make donations to those charity organizations , share my joy with those people who are suffering !

What a good idea friend. If all the rich people in the world has the same idea as yours I think we don't need charity anymore...for what purpose then if all the rich men share their blessings for those people you said that needs help..thanks then my friend
