I overheard that from someone in line to buy a PB tix. Do you believe he meant it ? How much would you give away if you win the Big One ?

    I'd definitely give it all away.

    Some now, to friends and family, current land owners, building contractors, auto dealerships, etc. Some later, to airlines, resorts, and who knows what. Then I'll give away the rest when I die.

      Now THAT is funny.

      I would like to go somewhere  Sun Smiley in winter then decide permanently.  Charity, church and paying forward most definately as there is way too much money and responsibility. imo.

        Don't forget about the restaurants!

        Oh and Amazon, they will definitely be getting a lot of my money.

          At this prize level, I'd give half of the cash value to my favorite non-profit.  I'd give more if it were tax free, but it's not so half it is.

              Amazon won't be getting one cent from me!  Those blood sucking thieves don't deserve anything!

                No reason to give after tax money to charity. Just form a foundation with the half your giving away.

                        Right. Unless of course your Bill Gates, and you give the money to yourself.  LOL

                          I think when most people say that, they are "negotiating with God" for a win and it does not work that way.  There is a guy in my office who told me one day (we were discussing charities) and he said he NEVER gives money to charities, only "loose change"  and was very contemptuous to even the idea.  I was shocked and asked if he'd never even written a $10 check to a charity and he said "no."

                          Then that last big MM came around and when he did not win, he sulked and said "well charities lost a  LOT of money" because he did not win. lol

                          If a person gives before, they will give after. If you were an arrogant jerk before, you will be a bigger jerk afterwards.

                            Maybe that was only part of his thoughts and the rest was "to me myself and I"
