What are some random acts of kindness do you think you would do if you won this money i.e. 550 million dollars?? These are a couple I have come up with.......

1. Go to local hospital billing dept. and ask to pay their most deliquent or close to collections accounts...of course without needed to know the person's personal info or even them knowing you did it..

2. Go to power company and do the same thing as above...

3. Go to an apartment building and pay everyone's rent for the year

4. Go to a car dealership and pay on some deliquent accounts for some people

5. Go to a daycare and pay up people's accounts for the year

 

These are some of my favorites I've heard....What are some of yours????

    Childrens hospital for cancer patients. It's so sad seeing those little kids with no hair.

    And some food banks

      That's an easy one, Sir, when I win the $550 million jackpot I promise to give the Federal government and the state of MI $295,518,700 and I will be more than happy taking home just $ 254,481,300. I think that's more than a generous amount to give away wouldn't you agree? Rather than me worry about where to give the money I'll simply give it to the government and let them see how they would like to spend it.

        A multi millionnaire may have fired his business manager in the middle of a world tour and will get around to catching up with his/her payments once he/she is back on dry land.

         

        On a serious note, I know a lot of wealthy people who are painfully slow in paying their bills. Especially if they're old money. They are certain the power company recognizes their name and won't be so foolish as to terminate service.

         

        Some have even threatened lawsuits for ruining their annual tea parties - lol.

          Obviously you don't think you have a snow ball chance in H*** of ever winning that jackpot or you would be thinking about how you would spend it to improve your own life.  It's easy being generous with money you don't have or unlikely to ever have.  Who's bills are you paying with the money you have now?

            There are all kinds of things you can do.

             

            Pay for someone's gas or groceries that you see at the store.

            Help an animal rescue that sends out calls for emergency funds.

            Put $100 in the Salvation Army's Christmas bucket outside Walmart.

            Go to the discount stores in August when school clothes and supplies buying time, and hand out $100 to random people with kids in tow.

            Donate a truck load of school supplies to a school in the poor section of town or a small rural farming community. Or both.

            Follow the propane truck making deliveries to rural areas and offer to pay heating costs for elderly customers.

             

            It's all in finding the most need and filling in the spaces.

              LOL   What if one of those child cancer patients, asked you for a couple of bucks, to help feed feed their poor starving dog "old faithful"?

                    Oh i definately believe I can win RJOH.....but obviously YOU haven't been paying attention.....First off there isn't a garage built for all the cars I'd buy and second there are too many cities to list of where I'd buy houses....but also you never saw the post where I asked people what's the craziest thing you'd buy if you won? I said i'd buy a $400,000 Rolls Royce Phantom....another post I said I'd go on back to back cruises on the "Oasis of the Sea"...largest cruise ship ever....another i also said I have my celebratory dinner of cristal rosea and wagu steak....So RJOH I've always take care of ME....there are so many other things you can do after you take care of you and yours.........and that's what this particular post was about son...think about someone other than yourself for once

                      I give to charity now, Childrens Hospital of Michigan, Salvation Army, Gleaners Food bank, Purple Heart, Wounded Warriors.

                      Would I give extra to them, yes, My main priority would be family and friends, college trust funds for every member of my family.

                        When I was in the hospital having a cancerous tumor removed from my leg, I never saw anyone asking if I needed any help.  As soon as I was home recovering I got plenty of phone calls from people collecting money to help cancer patients but when I ask where could I apply for some of that help since I was a recovering cancer patient, they either hung up or told me to contact the cancer society and then hung up.

                        I don't go to the hospital to visit people I don't know, so it's unlikely I wouldn't ever run into a child I didn't know or cared about.

                            I would definitely help out the schools I went to, as they helped me a lot throughout the years... My son had/has to see an endocrine specialist so I would like to try to donate for further research in the matter, or set up scholarships for those studying that field... Other random acts of kindness.... Pay it forward!!! There have been quite a few to help me out and I'd like to return the favor more than I am able to now...

                            I wish I may, I wish I might...
