Suppose you were advised to take the cash option, paid the taxes and for the sake of simplicity, you designate about $10,000,000 to charity.

I would consider that the advice of some simpleton that didn't know his behind from a hole in the ground.

      I personally would donate to kid charities, i finds they are worthy of getting  my money

      thanks to child labor laws,  must  can not most earn themselves a decent living or for that matter help what family they were born into rich or poor

       

      either it be giving to food and clothing for kids. I'm all for giving to such charities .long as they  don't waste it on high administration costs

       

      giving to adults, however, I am completely against, because simply people should be responsible for themselves

      such  as a homeless person or someone who was just evacuated due to hurricane or earthquake

      you have to remember the homeless person put themselves there

      there hurricane victim build their house in a flood plane right on the coast

      and any earthquake victim knowingly lived on a ticking time bomb

      not only do I not care for these people I despise giving money to these people

      it's like getting a crack cocaine user a other dollar to waste on their own destructive habits

      what does a hurricane victims do?

      move back to the same place their house was destroyed

      what does the earthquake victims do

      they rebuild on the same ticking time bomb. That just reset itself

      what does the homeless person do when they get money

      they wasted it on drugs or drinks or anything that you may consider Junk

      and then there is  of a course worst charity case of them all

      the government:

      people think it's all right to steal money to give to a bunch of idiotic morons who frankly are not are not real producers of anything

      they have no understanding getting back up when you fall flat on your ass

      of course this stupidity is the cease of worst economy they have seen in a long time

      this makes it so there is less money in the world to give real charities

       

      that are much more deserving than some government Democrat,who voted on and a forced charity through taxation

       

      To be blunt, if I were to win one of the 100+ million dollar jackpot. I frankly would  start my own charity that would  grow fresh fruit  and give it away to kids who need it,

      because frankly serving kids the food that  is MSG contaminated and other bad stuff that the food banks give away to be eatan is frankly disgusting

      I frankly think  such people should be locked in jail for for the harm they cause kids who don't know any better

      kids don't know that they're eating poison that affects the brain

      ever wonder why Alzheimer's and such other mental diseases in old people are going sky rocketing up

      because the stuff in everyday food, junk food is contaminated with toxins are harmful to the body and brain

      people are too stupid, and frankly, we should make stupidity most painful thing it can possibly can be in order to limit its spread

      instead, we were like its okay. it's all right to be stupid, let someone else do the  thinking for you,we take care of you.

      it's the blind leading the blind

      so in my eyes must charities are harmful to society in general

      that's the point I'm trying to make here

      to make life comfortable for stupidity is in fact rewarding it

      and that is flat-out encouraging bad behavior

      so, look at kids charities, and for all others

      if there is even a slight chance stupidity is being helped by it

      do not donate to them. Give no money, or you will in fact be supporting stupidity

      and that's the last thing you want to be doing. If you want to help society

        I would donate half to the nigerian lottery. Those guys are always so nice sending me emails about how Ive won the Nigerian lottery. They are so generous, i would have to donate to them

         

        I must have won the nigerian lottery at least 10 times.

          and that's the last thing you want to be doing. If you want to help society

          You might as well just hoard any winnings you get and become a greedy miser. They all *waste* a portion of donations on administration costs.

          Better yet, get your walking shoes on, go out and find the people you see fit to get your money, that might be the best way. You can cut out the

          middle man....if you do it all by yourself. Now there's a life mission....hand deliver aid, you'll know exactly where it's going.

          A person who gives with reservation or prejudice might as well just keep it. Money with strings attached is not truly a gift. It's a tool. How long

          would it take you to regret giving anything? The day you heard the warehouse where they store the food was flooded by tides waters from

          Hurricane xxx? Or the day you heard they had to hire and pay more people to distribute the food purchased by donations? Or the day a 7.0

          Earthquake hit the warehouse and swallowed everything up after years of warnings it was coming?

          Conditional giving, that's nothing new. Something new and refreshing would be to give and forget. The best part about that is, there's no hard

          feelings involved...not regret and no resentment.

            You all great plan, but you have not win it yet. And remember your spouse will run you over if you do not discuss in advance. This lesson I've learned from the 1994 lottery movie "It Can Happen to You" played by Nicolas Cage.
