If they faced hard times, l would not hesitate providing that assistance-providing they did not run off at the mouth to others given that the help is private. .how about you?

    How would you know that they really need help. And once word gets out that you are giving away money, people will be coming out from every crevices. 

    Of course if they can prove that they need help, then I would provide them with some money and have them sign some sort of a confidential agreement.

          How  would you know? How do we know Mike Tyson is near bankruptcy, if someone were going through tough times do people not seek help- we venturing into the realm of conjecture.

              maybe the winners can make a thread offering to the needy folks but be sure to be specific for THOSE THAT Seriously NEED THE HELP! Smiley

                  You have as much chance of getting a check from a fellow forumites(LP member) if one of them won a jackpot as the bums that hang out at local lottery retailers wishing everyone who buys a lottery ticket good luck.   Evil Looking

                  Why would anyone here ever expect such a response even  if they were a personal friend of the winner?

                    I can sense some of the sarcasm in your replys. But that's alright, it doesn't bother me. Cause in a short while I will be too busy spending my millions while...

                      I think those replies you speak of do bother you or you would not have made mention of it. This is a discussion forum and opinions are like noses, everybody has one. But don't let us stop you counting your millions Buddhist one.

                        No one is discussing " expecting a response"  from fellow LP members. Those folk who stand at street corners with placards saying " Help- Homeless, need food"- do you think they expect no one to give them a handout? Why venture out their  doors if they  felt that way? You would have us believe that all members of LP are coldhearted, callous & immature.
                        You need to broaden your mental horizons.

                          I wouldn't have you believe anything, I just thought the word forumites was referring to fellow LP posters and was just asking why anyone here would expect such a response. 

                          I've never felt posting at LP entitled me to any special considerations from lottery winners and wanted know why some others might feel different.
