I would like to see a homeless person win who had sacrificed his/her last $2.00 on a lottery ticket instead of wasting it on alcohol or a few cigarettes.

    I think they are have been a few cases of this happening, such as this man in Hungary last September.

    When I was homeless the last thing on my mind was the lottery, alcohol or cigarettes (though to be honest, I don't smoke and only casually drink). I was more looking forward to spending that $2.00 on McDonald's dollar menu! Crazy LOL

    If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
    If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

          I'd like to see an average middle class person or someone who's been struggling get the money. Someone who won't go crazy with the money buying expensive cars, houses, etc., only to go broke. Someone who will make good use of the money to live a comfortable life.

            Since the title says "Other than yourself", I hope its a friend/relative who I have an agreement with about the shared winnings aspect. As for beyond that ????...Well I have 3 scenarios.....I would have to vote for a person who has family members with special needs. My second choice is for a guy/gal who's worked hard all their life, helped others in a moments notice. That person who has never gotten a break and could really use it.... My last choice would be for someone who's heavily involved with our Veterans, who would invest a large jackpot portion and take the yearly dividends/profits to assist families of our wounded warriors.

              A friend of mine, a 30-year old single mother of two, is somebody I would like to see win.  I know she will do good things for her children with that money.

                   Charity begins at home. So blood relatives first then charity.  When you do give to charity make it an arm's length move, meaning the recipient does not know your name or anything else about you. Then the poor person will not ask you for more but will ask the organization that you donated too.  While  you are at it , check the history of the charity you give too.Banana
