    • I would first give my church the money needed to build the church we are about to build and have it debt free.  

      But even before giving anything away or buying anything I would get myself a trusted tax attorney/accountant and make sure the money worked for me!  

      Then...I would tithe it....pay off the houses my family owns.....establish college accounts for my great nieces and nephews.  

      Probably purchase a new home and give ours to our son. And travel.....

      I would also help fund some scholarships for people wanting to seek sobriety / and or be drug free.

    • Much the same as Mary.  First get a good reliable accountant.  Pay off what debt we have.

      House, travel, more reliable car.  I still wouldn’t buy new though.

      And I’d fund scholarships for those kids who want to learn a trade and come back to the rural areas and set up shop.

    • I would quit both my jobs. Move into a nicer home, set up my kids and grandkids for life. I would take care of me for a change. And travel, something I’ve never been able to afford.

    • First, I would probably be in shock and have to get over the initial excitement...then as Mary mentioned hire a tax attorney.

      Second, set our son up for life in his own fitness business, help him knock down the existing family cottage and build a brand new one as he loves Hancock, NY and wants to own it someday.  He also wants to own purebred German Shepherds, so we would build a special house just for them as our son is allergic, but loves that breed.

      Third, give to both of our extended families, particularly all the kids..help them pay off their debts, set up college funds, etc...there would be a lump sum of money given to surviving parents, siblings & their spouses.

      Donate to many organizations..MS Society, Cancer Society, Humane Society, etc..many people and animals need help.

      Finally, sell this house and move to upstate PA, buy a small working farm, grow organic and live our elder years out there complete with a huge pond.estaticestatic

    • We all have very similar thoughts on this it seems. I agree with getting a good tax attorney for starters. Then pay off any debts, take care of my mother, stay in school and finish my degree, give to charities and fund scholarships for women who want to go back to school.

    • I would do similar as you all.  Sadly I didn’t win any mega millions but I did win $100 on the powerball!!

    • With that sort of money give Mum Dad and my brother and his wife a million each.  Build my dream home with all luxuries. Pay off all debts.  Buy my purple Lotus, Tricycle and a three wheeled motorbike.  New glasses.  Complete new wardrobe.  Publish a novel and book of poems.  Holidays everywhere I have always wanted to go.

    • I would give to family, friends and chosen associations. I’d probably finish the barn, buy a small truck for my hives, then I don’t really know. I’m happy in my tiny house and I don’t think getting a bigger one would make me happier. So I’d have to go with the flow. May sound a bit boring but I don’t think I would want to change a lot if I had money. Of course, like everyone else it would make my life easier, but I don’t fancy a glamour or luxurious life. Money doesn’t make you meet more “true to themselves” people, doesn’t buy you love, self of accomplishment, awareness or hapiness.
