After the reading the story I predict that those two people will be in the paper again within about five-seven years and they will be poster children for blowing through their lottery winnings within a relatively short time. I think it is great that they want to feed children and try to make sure that no one in the community goes hungry.
They were approached about starting a hockey team, that is something that can bleed them dry within a relatively short time. It reminds me of an English man who bought a football, might have been a rugby team. He ended up bankrupt quite quickly.
They need to learn to live off the interest of their winnings and to not spend the principal. That way they can have a grand old life and they will be able to help many more charities rather then needing charity in the future.
If I was down to ten dollars I would not spend on the lottery. If I could not work then I would go to the support systems in my area and ask for help. Once I was back on my feet, then I would go from there.
