Wow, interesting brain.  Odd example, as Mother Teresa never accepted monies for herself, she lived in poverty once entering her 40s during her daily 7-days-a-week "missionary" lifestyle years until death.  However, this male big lottery jackpot winner works for PAY.  He could probably talk to the nursing home's management to switch to some sort of daily or weekend non-paying volunteer work ... if WORKING and BEING with these nursing home residents was currently his goal/need.  Geez.

Well, new ideas regarding this topic of methodology are probably exhausted.Thud

Wow, you have a limited brain. I think some of us were analyzing the siuation on a more esoteric level...it is not a simple work for pay issue. And Mother Teresa was one of the biggest wheeler and dealers around in getting money for her organization.  Geezzz  And yes the topic is exhausted.

      Loneliness can be a terrible thing, regardless of how much money you may have. It's all in your head.

        Playing the lottery is a very social thing to do.

          Did Mother Teresa support the lottery?

            I hate to be the only one to point out an obvious fact.  But he is helping the elderly becauseHE IS elderly. (Well almost anyway)

            And besides, he should just quit, and perhaps just become a professional volunteer.

            Its all good.  Good Luck to the winner!  Go easy on that champagne.

            Is he a greedy lottery winner? LOL

              Indeed he is a good man, he definitely deserve this blessing. Some people once they have huge amount of money they just think about themselves. It is nice to know that there are other people who think of others first before themselves. I hope he will receive more blessings.
