Congrats to Marie and family.

I think one way we could help her here is by collecting some advice for her in case she happens to stumble on the site. I'll start the ball rolling here:

      Q: If I should win a large top prize, do I have the option of remaining anonymous with regard to the media and the public?

       

       


      A: The NCEL will consider a winner’s name, city/county, and the prize amount a matter of public record, unless the winner produces a valid protective order or Address Confidentiality Program authorization card.

          Wow!, just Wow!! I really am having a hard time understanding what I'm reading here in some of these posts, especially in a forum such as this. Everyone of us has this dream, probably even more so than others since we sign on/create accounts and post in a lottery forum. One in which we share ideas, dreams, and humour, all with our fingers crossed hoping to hit it big one day. As we witness this new journey this young woman and those around around her are about to embark on, why not write messages of encouragement, hope, congratulations, and advice for her. Who knows, she might log unto the Internet to search for 'past lottery winners' and stumble upon this site (that's how i found it). Why is there so much vitriol towards someone who represents and is embracing in this very moment, the one thing all of us on here want, dream of, even crave for? I am amazed and truly disappointed, never expected this in a forum as this. On yahoo and other comment sections yes, i expect it there. Not Here. ENOUGH!!!

          do u really want the answer to this question.....

            26 years old, works at Walmart and has 4 kids. That money is as good as gone. After her friends, boyfriends and family, the church, lawyers and financial experts are done with her she'll be lucky if she has $50,000 left to her name when this is all done. When you win a certain amount of money your previous financial circumstances should really be evaluated a mandatory percentage of the money should be placed into an account that you can't touch for X amount of years and distributed gradually for your protection. This goes for pro-athletes also. You can't hand someone that was making $8/hr tens of millions of dollars in one fell swoop, like a monkey a loaded gun. The ones too that are eager to come forward right away and let everyone know they one as opposed to taking their time, setting things up and trying to remain anonymous are the ones usually prone to disaster. This is going to be a real sad story down the road. 

            did u mistakenly leave out that she was Black....????

              This post is soooo disrespectful.  What does Black have to do with it? Here we go with " racist " posting... In my humble opinion, it's her money and she can spend it any kind of way she wants and it's none of my nor your business. She doesn't need to have her money rationed. 

              Whether it was an EBT card that bought the ticket or not, she works two jobs and they take taxes from her also, just as any one else so enough with all the condemning. No one tells you how to run your household, so who are you to tell someone who can spend there money one a timely basis.  It's hers and she can do as she pleases. We all come to this site with hopes and dreams to win money, now it has happened to her.  She is 24, BLACK with four children and does works, bought her own ticket, what's your problem? You didn't win... Sounds like your hating on her... Don't judge....or condemn. Get over it and buy you a set of winning numbers cause she set for life.  I'm truly happy for anyone who is getting ahead in this lifetime. No need to tear anyone down regardless of nationality.  That's so wrong.

                              Congratulation to Marie Holmes, on her win. It nice to hear "tithes first" then a plan for her children.
