Last week was a lucky week for my family members. My brother told us that he won at the nearby casino, enough where he should have paid the taxes before he left. If he was supposed to pay taxes, that means it was over a thousand dollars. The very next day, my mom called me and said that she won on a scratch-off ticket. She said "I scratched it off and won $100, and then found out it was times ten." So she won a thousand dollars on a scratch-off ticket.
This got me thinking. What would you do if you won $1000? What if you won millions? How would you spend it?
I would like to think if I won big (like millions) I would donate some to a charity of some sort. I would like to donate some to the youth center that I spent a lot of time at when I was growing up. I remember promising when I was 16 or 17 that I would buy an air conditioning unit for the soup kitchen I visited with the youth center. It got far too hot in the summer, serving food behind the counter.
In the way of spending it, I would like to put some away for my son's future, as well as a lot of it in the bank for me to spend as I please. I would get more driving lessons and get my license, and then a car as well. A bigger house would be nice too.
So what do you think? What would you want to do if you won millions of dollars?
