I think I would first give some money to organisations that will use it for campains against rascism, pollution of the environement and to fight for the human rights .
Another part of the money would be given to the Zapatistas and the independent institution in my town.
With the rest of the money I would buy a littel plot (property?) were I want to have a garden to grow vegetables ...
I think I don't need all the money for myself because there are people, who really need it for survive.

Nothing. I'd sit there and do nothing.

LOL, sorry had to quote Office Space, great movie. But in reality, a million dollars... hmm... well it's a lot for low and middle class people, but you still can't live too richly off of it. I'd probably get a new house, maybe pay for my college education, then make a lot more off of the job I get from that. Very Happy

If I won the lottery tomorow, I would buy a big house in a safe, nice area.

I would put a part of my fortune into education. If I had enough money, I would study at Stanford or Yale. I could finish studing at a famous university and get such a very good job, which would bring me much more money then I already had. Of course I would keep it secret that I won.

The rest of my fortune, I would share with my husband. He could decide himself if he wanted to quit his job or not. And we would travel all over the world.

If I won the lottery, the first thing I would do is help muy mom and dad with all the costs of home. Another thing is that I would help people, maybe by making donations. Also, I would travel to many exotic places and would by many things. But the most important thing is that I would help all the people in the world who need it.

One survey said someone who won a usually is not happy because they

are always anxious about their money, argue whit family and so on. So

actually, I don't want to win a lottery.

But, if I won a lottery first I won't tell anyone, even my family.

I won't change anything. I would keep my studying, keep living, and keep

driving my old car.

I would make an organization for children. We used to say "children are

our dream",but many children undergo all on many sorts of hardship. I

want them to get a better life than now. If I would help them, I will do it

with pleasure.

I want to make money by myself. money is a very important material in

life, but we have more important things, for example harmony family,

real friends and peace. I'll choose these things.

If I won the lottery, first of all, I would buy some houses. The houses can be more money. And I could buy anything I want. Very Happy But I should hide the fact I won the lottery because many people might envy me and attack me. I know there are many poor people in the world. I want to help them and I want to travel around the world. My parents can also travel around the world and they can do eyerything they want. Then if I had still enough money, I would save the money.

If i won the lottery, i would buy an island for my family. My parents always have supported me so, i'd like to stay with my parents on a peaceful island. And then, if i had enough money, i would donate it to children who have died from famine in Africa and support children who can't study. In addition, some countries in Africa have been at war. So, many boy soliders are at war. Actually, they don't want to be a soldier, but the government forces them to be a soldiers. The government drugs them and the boy soliders cruelly kill people. Many boy soliders regret that, but they can't escape from government. For that reason, i would like to support those boys.

If I won the lottery, I'll excited and nervous.
First of all, I'll plan on how to spend the money better. So, now, I'm going to write that down. First, I'll divide it into ten. One tenth would be donated to church. Second, I'll give two tenths to my mom and father each of them. Third, I'll save two tenths at a bank.
Now, I am lift half. I'll spend this money for myself. Of course, I'll buy a new house and car. And I'll decorate it with curtains and furniture. I want to get a library. I'll fill many bookshelves all around wall. Also, I would like to het a music room with a piano, a violin, a flute, a bass guitar and so on... Maybe I need to learn how to play some instruments.
I hope to travel all over Europe on my own. And I will establish a school. So, I wil be schoolmistress. If I were schoolmistress, I would employ a competent teacher. Likewise, if I had enough time and money, I would enjoy my hobby and learn something I couldn't do.
I hope to have fair skin and nice body for health. So, I'll go to a beauty salon for skin and health.
