          Can't blame her. Twenty bucks a draw is alot for someone without a paycheck. What if it rolled a few times.

            They are so sweet for being so generous and sharing their blessing to other people. I hope all winners are like them. :)

                I Agree! I just wish they had given her an equal share.

                  Being sweet and generous will get old if she doesn't come up with twenty bucks the next time a collection is taken up for the pool.

                      For all we know, they only gave her $20. bucks. What?

                          I hope not cause it'll be the most expensive $20 she ever received.

                            The story does say they put together "a fat pile of money" but that is a very subjective term, and considering "they wont say how much" I would guess its a small amount compared to the $80k+ they are getting.

                            I still think giving "a share" would have been BETTER. In fact, slitting the money with a 13th person would have given them around $77k each instead of $83k each.

                              That is very true RJOH......I think she will be in every future draw with "the team"........they probably decided to give her some of the winnings so she wouldn't be a "negative vibe" within the group.....maybe she will buy tickets on her "own" too as well........... and if she wins...give some to the co-workers.......beaudad
