The NJ PB Winner said he will help his family. I applaud him for that. I also wish he will be the first one to start a single charity fund that other lottery winners, past and future, can contribute to.

I think this fund can grow very easily and make a huge impact on the lives of many.

"...a huge impact on the lives of many."

You don't say who this money is supposed to help outside of "many."

I think that's a little too vague for anybody to want to get involved with it.

There's no shortage of charities out there if somebody wants to give.

    Yes I too struggle with that. But there is redemption for everyone, especially for him now that he has so much.

    The only reason there is a redemption is because he is a deadbeat dad.

    He's going to pay about $70 million in taxes and I wonder what percentage of that will be distributed in EBT cards.

       Uh...maybe we should abolish the complete welfare system?

        No, not all of it. Just about 95% of it probably.

        Cuz there's probably about 5% of the people on it who really need it.

        We just need to unload the ones who've taken our safety net and made a hammock out of it.

          I think I will help my family out when I win the lottery and not charity because family sticks together through good times and bad.  Forget charity!-weshar75
