My grandparents donated food until they died and they did not have much but believed in helping others.  So I would like to donate food to charitable organizations that accept and feed homeless.-weshar75

    I'd buy whatever college Kingofearth goes to and turn it into a homeless shelter.

      I would set up a charitable foundation as well and pretend I work for it...while I secretly run it. All types of charities would be helped through grants.

        I would take 20% of the money and set up a charitable trust and donate the yearly interest to my favorite charities. Mail For YouBig Grin Santa

          I Agree!  Very good idea.

          That way it turns the money into a perpetual contribution. Instead of making a one-time donation, your suggestion turns it into an eternal gift. Bravo.

            So what good things will you do Kingofearth if you win a major jackpot?

            I've volunteered at 4 places ( 2 food banks, a homeless shelter and a non profit that ships stuff to other countries) and those 4 places are gonna get big donations. I'm not gonna give to any of the big "charities" that use 99% for "administration and overhead".

              Give 10% of my income each year to help the homeless.

                  I live in a small town, and I'd just like to do things here and there that help the community. Recently a historic building and business burnt down, and they plan to rebuild it. Something like that, I would really like to help assist financially with.

                  Scholarships and sponsorships. High School Equestrian Team, FFA, 4-H. (Probably other sporting events, as well.) Im sure there would be things I would want to do down the road, but those are some things I have always thought of when it comes to this topic. Probably a contribution to the local Police and Fire Dept. as well.

                    I'll buy myself a really nice hybrid vehicle.  You know so I could help reduce pollution...

                      The Shriiners Children's Hospitals would definitely get  a nice chunk.  After that, I'd be nice folks that I think deserve it, but woe be unto them if they went around running that mouth about it.

                          That's mighty consciences of you. You may also want to cut back on the air conditioner as according to Secretary of state John Kerry and his boss, the pollutants being emitted from A/C units is far worse than fossil fuels and is now an even bigger threat to mankind than ISIS.

                            My husband will gladly take your Ferrari and as a gesture of good will offer you his bicycle, not only will you save on gas but you'll get in shape as well.

                              That would be very nice of you! recently there was a big jackpot winner who like yourself lived in a small town and has so far built a new fire station and helped improve other facilities that were in dire straits.
