Many people who win jackpots, or substantial prize money, donate a percentage to a charity. Were you lucky enough to win a tidy sum? Did you make a donation to charity?

    It been said before that once a LP member wins big and post a jpeg of their winning ticket, they're never heard from again.  That being said you're preaching to the wrong choir.  If you're really interested in knowing the answer to your question then you should contact the lottery sites for a list of their big winners and send them a letter directly.

      Agree with RJOh's comment if you are taking a survey.

      Regarding the subject matter, I don't think winning the lottery has anything to do with giving a percentage to charity. If someone never reached into his pocket to help anyone before getting lucky, I doubt if he'll be very generous when he wins a big jackpot (and vice versa)

          I haven't won a jackpot, nor even a big prize.

          I keep a case of Dinty Moore canned stew in the back of the truck and give a couple of cans to hitchhikers when I let them off, if I think they're hungry.  If I'm feeling flush sometimes I'll throw in a couple of bucks if they don't try to take it by force. 

          If they do try, or if they'd like to try, I don't give them the stew.

              It's one of those rare, endangered-species-of-opinion areas where conventional wisdom is correct.

              It ain't you never know.  You always know.

              I don't recommend anyone else do it unless they want to without any encouragement from me.

              I just happen to do it.

                If you want to make money                 open up a non profit co    and pay your self  your mom       have big fundraising events  put your office in a nice home    and so on          I seen sights that tell you what % goes to the charity and what goes to the charity          I can give a $ to a man on the street and get a better return                 take Mr B   a hard  working  street man would   give him $1       75 cents to entertainment (beer) and 25 cents went to food (chips)      A better deal then most charities  but what seemed to work best is when I paid him for odd jobs and showed respect and compassion           And as for the storms $$$$$$  some people are just waiting for checks and hand outs          the people in Biloxi and the gulf shores aren't waiting they  started moving forward when the rain stopped and ask for help and so thankful  for the manpower Volunteer's  2 homes down the street were hit hard  #1 had 10 people from a church $8000.00 in donations  10 days later it was perfect  # 2 is still wait for the big G to help
