    start a small charity buying abandoned houses in the neighborhood where ours is now located,, renovating them,, then renting them to those in need of cancer treatments at the nearby center for whatever they can afford to pay each month donation status only from the renters and general public who wished to support the charitys cause.

    buy a house for my mom, and one for my sister and her family and one for me and my family. I'm sure I would invest some money in a business or something too. (ahhh that would be nice to win!!)

    on the rare occasions when i get a lottery ticket, i spend days savoring it and thinking about what i'd do with it. say it's a 40 million lottery payout.

    1/2 to taxes and legal stuff: 20 million left.
    5 million -> investments for me and my family. 15 mil left.
    5 million -> endow a chair for applied computer science, rice u. 10 mil left.
    1 mil to each of my sibs and sibs in law. 6 mil left.
    4 mil to charitable orgs, including my church. 2 mil left.
    just have fun with the rest. spread it around. tip the haircut lady, travel, whatever. buy a big chunk of land for a park or something.

    ''a school report is due and the kids had to go home and write down what theyd do if they won the lottery
    one kid gives his paper in saying he would buy a boat and a car and a house
    another gives her paper in saying she would buy designer clothes and own a salon
    another hands his in and it says nothing on the paper,the teacher asks ''why have you wrote absoloutley nothing on the paper?and he says ''because if i won the lottery,thats exactly what id do''

    hum not really,, we want to get rid of our house there anyways because we want to live in the country ,,,, and people going through cancer really need whatever support others can give them,,, its a terribly lonely thing to have to experince... I dont know I think Im gonna look on the obama website and mabey offer some suggestions on what could be done with alot of these abandoned homes.. never can tell where it will lead right? lol

    I'd put most of it in a savings account. I gotta go to college on something...and then I'd pay off as much of my family's debt as possible. If, by miracle (or by way of winning an extremely huge amount of money), there was some left, I'd put that towards a car, because I don't have one yet.
