DP : You’re a Winner!

You’ve just won $1 billion dollars in the local lottery. You do not have to pay tax on your winnings. How will you spend the money?

I am delighted to know about the one billion dollars I’ve won in the local lottery, I do not have to pay taxes, it sounds sweet. Even better than sugar, the primary ingredient in almost all desserts.

It will be like easy come easy go money. I didn’t work for it , I won it. Spending it can be easy if I want to party around all over the planet. Wait now I’m hearing a voice, it’s telling me this is my opportunity to be generous.

Whenever I watch TV , there is  always someone asking us to donate money to poverty stricken children in Africa, or somewhere else. I have often thought how great it would be if I could help out the people who are starving.

Instead of using the money to buy expensive stuff for myself, I’d rather donate all of this money to charity. I’d feel much better doing this than buying expensive cars, jewelry, clothes, homes, or what have you.

My mind is made up I will give all of this money away!!

Writing Prompt: Charitable

You’ve inherited $5 million, With instructions you must give it away— but you can choose any organizations you like to be the beneficiaries. Where does the money go?

My inherited five million dollars must be given away to any organization I like, makes me wonder why me of all people is entrusted to do this. This is a great way of keeping the person honest, if that little clause was not put in the will I’d probably  not think of charity. I know of an incidence where the dying brother wanted something like this done with the insurance money,it was only something he told her, there was no legal document,so the sister ignored his wish and kept it for herself.

This instruction clearly avoids something like I have written above. Now I must carry on with which organization I’d like to donate the money to. 

There are countless organizations all over the world, I have no idea how they operate and is it safe to give all that money to them. How can I be certain they will give the money to communities that need the most.

This is what I plan to do, since charity begins at home I will donate the money to organizations in my community. I will be able to know what they are doing with the money,whether the have-not’s in my community are getting the benefit or is it used by the bosses of the organizations.
