She promised to pay her tithe to the church which is 10% of her winnings. If she took home 88 million, shouldn't that have been about 9 million?

maybe she'll tithe yearly till she reaches her 10%.  I know I would never give to one church or any particular charity, millions of dollars, I'd rather spread it out. For $700000 I would rather give to multiple churches around my community that gives back to the community and not just pocket the $... or I could start my own church or charity and give my own donations to the church and write them off tax free knowing that the money would be put to use the right way.

    Marie Holmes pocketed around $70 million after all taxes are paid. So 700k is really nothing.
