"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

I would like to know your opinions about it. But I want you to take into account some points.
1. How long is this money is going to last ? Think about future generations.
2. Would you invest in something?
3. Would you give away some of the money?

Thank you in advance.

    I haven't checked my numbers, yet. So ... well you never know, right?

    If I won the jackpot, the Network would be a beneficiary. I would definitely hire enough teachers to have someone online 24/7. Until then, you will have to make do with the teachers we have. :smile:

    If I won a lottery and got a huge amount of money, I would spend a big propotion to start a residencial school for orphan kids, an old home and build a farm house. Rest of the money would be spent on traveling all over the world.

    Recently I bought many lotteries, the prize of the lottery I bought now is up to $15 mil.
    Everytime, I bought a tiket, I always thought about the future. Unfortunatetly, It will never happen to me, it just like you buy something that cheer you up in a moment :'(

    I don`t play any lotteries, but if by some miracle I were to win, I would give half of the money to charity, and I would probably invest the rest in some business and in my own development.

I might invest that money in a business, but I am not sure whether I would be able to spend any of it on social projects or not.

    I appreciate your honesty @mdshamsad. I don't think anyone really knows what they would do, until it happens. Let's hope some of us get to find out. ;)

    I will donate 10% of the money to any non-profit organization and I will go for 2week vacation, while i'm on vacation I will analyze all the expenses I need for my career project and invest everything on my project.
