Contributions to: Medical research, and peace studies. Folks have such a hard time resolving conflicts in a fair fashion which often leads to medical injuries...So put em together and see if we can find a cure for the hatred and distain that runs deep amongst humans.

 Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

     When the Bush adminstration gave huge tax cuts to the top income earners of the country, and told the rest of us  the extra income  the weathy will enjoy because of the tax breaks  would trickle down and benefit the rest of us.    I am curious to see if LP members, if they won the jackpot,  would share or not, and where they would place their money.  Please answer honestly.

                In SC the legal age to get married is 14.  Go figure.  Where were the mothers when that law was being written?

                  First no matter what I won I would pay tithes, then I would donate to various charities, American Cancer Society, Abused Elderly and children organizations, Homeless Shelters, Autism Foundation to name a few.  the reason I named these is because I already donate to these causes, it's not much but every little bit helps, so I know when I hit the big one, they will really get a serious increase in funds from my family.

                    If I won a large lottery pot, gifts to needy relatives and friends and charitable giving would be the main uses of the money, as I'd only want to increase my own standard of living modestly.  Several of my relatives are disabled, and helping them would come first.  Then, depending upon the size of the pot, would come donations for

                    new fire station for my small town

                    local library

                    world relief projects through my church

                    local Progressive Animal Welfare group

                    free or reduced rate spay/neuter programs elsewhere in my state

                    American Red Cross

                    Salvation Army

                    scholarship programs for local youth
