The Power ball is 430 million so far.  It will go higher.  Have you or will you buy a ticket(s)?  Is your workplace pooling money to buy tickets? I'm not sure I will even buy tickets?  There is more to the story.

Sean Gladwell

The real story is, what's important to you?  What I am getting at isn't what we would do if we won the lottery, but really, If we were able to help others, would we and how?

Yes, I would spend money on myself.  Pay off my debt.  Invest in real estate some how.?  I would pick a charity that is dear to me.  I would establish a foundation to manage the majority of the funds to help charities and to also grow what I have available.  The best comparison I could use is like in the bible, when Jesus fed thousands with a few fish and loaves of bread.  Make sense?
