 If I win, I will never donate directly from the winning prize. I will set up the nest egg, then I will donate the portion of monthly investment income to the charity. Or, I will just set up my own. After seeing an Aston Martin with the logo of a school for blind, I stopped believing in ANY charity foundation.

Well if you ever had the opportunity to visit Haiti and see how the UN and NGOs are living it up, you would stop donating to any charities that go to disaster areas AFTER the disaster is over!  Charities execs and workers staying in apartments at Manhattan prices.  Night clubs packed every night with NGOs and UN parasites.  It just made me sick!  But let me win.  I believe that charity starts at home!

Oh and in case you didn't know, non-profit directors/CEOs usually pull in $500,000+ and the other high level workers make a nice living.  No they aren't getting by on social service worker type pay!  Non-profit just means the organization cannot show a profit.  It doesn't mean the top people cannot get paid for-profit type money.  Have you ever wondered why pastors and other high level church leaders drive such nice cars, live in nice neighborhoods, and wear new threads?  I think OWS should focus on those type of frauds and leave hard working business men and women alone.

Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

    I just luv to hear people say oh when I I win I will give large donations(which is b.s.) hoping this will help them win. Let me ask u this. If a stranger approached u while u were at say  a fast food joint and said " can u buy me. Sandwich because I'm starving"? Would u or have u? I. Didn't think so. Everyone says I will do this and that for others when I win but already have more than others but look down at someone if they asked for a #1 off the value menu. Keep it real.

    If a stranger came up to me and asked me for a sandwich, I would absolutely buy them a sandwich.  I donate wherever I can.  I just recently gave my Christmas tree away.  Yes, my Christmas tree.  This year, we splurged on a $50 blue spruce.  Got it home and I was covered in hives in a few days.  I put an ad up on craigslist, for a free tree.  My only stipulation is that I wanted someone who really needed it, not someone looking for a freebie.  the person who came and got it was so appreciative that they were going to have a tree.  It made me feel good that I could do something, however small, for someone. 

    Financially, I don't have a lot to give, but I try to give in small ways.  (I always make sure to drop off pet food at our local animal shelter and also 'buy a bag' to donate at my local grocery store for the food pantry.

    I know what it's like to need help.

    I would love to have a jackpot to be able to donate more.

              The key to winning a lottery jackpot is buying a lottery ticket with the winning numbers on it.

              Patience is a virtue when playing the lottery.Winning a lottery jackpot is all about PATIENCE.

              lol!

                Well once again those talking smack jinxed themselves.

                Question for you all, how many times have you claimed a jackpot like that - "This one is mine", and how many jackpots have you won?

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    Wow, bitter much?  Who cares if someone is claiming it and it doesn't happen.  I say let people dream.  If you constantly buy tickets, thinking 'it's never going to happen'... Guess what?  ITS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!

                    I thought that's why we ALL bought lottery tickets...to dream.  I FULLY EXPECT to win!

                      Everybody hopes they are going to win or there'd be no ticket sales.

                      But to brag about winning a jackpot pre-drawing is a jinx, and so far that jinx has worked every single time anyone has done it on these forums.

                        Yes, the 'jinx' works on these forums, but how many 'lottery changed my life' stories have we seen where they said they were going to win....and they did.  (robynn newton comes to mind...along with Cynthia stafford and another lady who told her boss she was winning a million dollars tonight and did)

                        Good grief, what a way to poop in someone's wheaties!

                          All things considered, not so many such stories. The one lady may have told her boss but did any of them get on a lottery forum on the internet and tell every one else not to bother playing?

                          I still say doing so is a jinx, and has proved islef on these forums every single time it's been done, bar none.

                            Do we really know for sure that no who has posted here has won?  After all the teaching on this site about remaing silent about your win, could someone here possibly taken that to heart and acts like they haven't won?

                             

                            Although statistically,you are probably correct by saying that, one can not jinx themselves by saying they have the winning ticket.  Legally, every ticket is a bearer bond and a winner until the drawing.  The ticket that I have for the next drawing is statistically not a winner.   I researched the number and it has already been drawn in a prior year.   But....I can still say I have a winning ticket until the correct number is drawn.Wink  Besides, most of the fun is in the dreaming of winning.   The work begins after the win......

                              zinniagirl,

                              Do you really think that anyone who would brag about winning a jp before the actual drawing could possiblly dummy up after winning it?

                              There is at leat one member here who won a Pick 5, twice in fact, but they don't brag about it.

                              As far as a MM or PB JP, doubtful.
