Obvious Marie Holmes is a Christian and she is being obedient by tithing she is giving God all the glory when you win you can do what you want with your winnings as she is doing. There was a man in Missouri that won the Powerball at the store he bought the ticket from he did an interview the next day and he had multiple kids as well plus the kids his girlfriend had so far there has been no bad news stories about him.

I remember him doing the interview with co-workers looking on. He had talked about buying a lot of land or farm somewhere and I hope him and his family are safe and doing well.

    Odds that she is broke in 2 years?  Let's check how responsible she is:

     

    --26 years old and 4 kids

    --Giving TV interviews BEFORE you turn in the ticket

    --Planning to give the money to a CHURCH?  These mega-buildings that already have millions?  Why not flush the money down the toilet?

     

    Yeah, good luck.

    l am trying to figure out what concerns you the most..

    Her Age, having 4 children, her coming forward this soon, giving to her Church?

    Have you given it much thought that she could've been on welfare and has now been unshackled from it? Her moment of Financial Freedom has arrived! 

    She is getting North of $80 mil.. who blows through that amount of money but..some NBA players & Mike Tyson! Give Her some credit.

    People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

      Yep I remember he said he was going to take the family to Disney World Big Grin seems like he is being smart with his money he was a single dad raising his children with his girlfriend and her children he spent his last $5 dollars and won love stories like this. Smile

        Come on guys, ENOUGH!!! Enough with all this negativity, bad vibes if not malice. Be happy for her, for them. We ALL wanted to have that feeling, to be 'shocked', to be relieved, to be ecstatic, even overwhelmed. Please stop with all the hating and mean spirited comments. Would I have come forward so quickly?, no but more so because i have so many issues i would need to clean up before. So good on her, go get that money girl!! Go get that money!!! ITS YOURS!!!!!

        WAY TO GO Young Lady!!! Now go LIVE IT UP!!!! Be smart and careful and remember to ENJOY!! ENJOY!!! ENJOY!!! ENJOY!!!

        I Agree!

        I Love Pink & Green 1908

So lets not think its those who are poor or of a certain socio-economic background or just NBA PLAYERS or MIKE TYSON!!! But i get your point....i think!!

            Wow, some these comments are just so judgmental. What happen to being happy for others? Or is it that some of you are mad cause you did not win. I mean if you can try to predict how many years she will go broke, then how come you couldn't predict the numbers to win your share of the pot?

            Congratulations Marie! You are in a position to not only be a blessing to your family and friends, to many. God bless you!!!

              Agreed- l could have thrown in Bernie Madoff in there as well but l mentioned those who for the most part are/were front & center, those who are in front of microphones spouting off about this or that & what they earning.  These Wall Street guru's etc who lose mega cash keep a low profile until it hits the fan.

                Finally checked my tickets this morning and had 4 winners, $100, (2) $7 and a $4 ticket. The $100 and (1) $7 ticket was purchased in FL and the others were bought in SC and NC. I guess I will be sending the tickets to a friend in FL so she can cash them for me. I bought a total 27 tickets so I came out ok.

                Good luck to the 26 year old mother and hope she gets competent advice.

                Congratulations!!

                  Congratulations!!

                  Thank you! it was my biggest PB/MM win so far but to be fair I also went overboard from my usual 2 tickets when I ended up with 27 for the last drawing.

                        I hope she finds a group of attorney/CPA's who have some integrity and will do their best to look out for her best interest. Even if she only bought CD's, $70 million earning 1% annually would bring in $700k yearly.

                        She needs to keep a tight lid on her small circle of friends and be extra vigilante about who she helps.
