    All debt of everyone I love would be eliminated, I would have a new house, new car, and I would get my dog because I could afford a dog walker for when I am working. I'd probably also quit my job and start an animal sanctuary.

    I'd put a solar panel on every school in the state that is less than 10 years old. I'd work out the financing first, but this would basically ensure cheap electricity for the public schools and a legacy of residual income for my heirs.Colleges would not be immune as they are also public schools.

    Give my tithes (10%) in the form of anonymous help to people who are struggling and trying to do right.

    I'd pay off my student loans, which is less than $8k.

    Get my mom something/ anything she wanted.

    I'd stash 17 million someplace that wouldn't continually be inched off by the government.

    I'd fund admirable community projects.

    Look into starting a school in Mexico.

    I'd start a small film business.

    Buy a dependable vehicle.

    Give my five closest friends $5k.

    Go to Antarctica.

    Save the rest.

    i'd do this
    I would place the money in multiple tax-free interest bearing accounts. Even if I could realize a 4% return that would pay me $1.6 million/year. My new job would be to find deserving souls who need help, but are not asking for it. I would send them a check towards their need anonymously.

    I would send checks for $50k to the following charities:
    1. St. Jude's Childrens Cancer Center
    2. Salvation Army
    3. USO

    I would also like to look for everyday people who are outstanding in what they do. Depending on the person, I would offer a scholarship or a vacation on me.

    Every year, I would spend all of the money I get off of the interest earned to pay for my living expenses and to help as many people as I could without any of them taking my kindness for granted. Then when all my days are done, I would have the bank account money split between my sons.

    Pay off my students loans.

    Open a retirement account for my parents.

    Pay off my sister's and Bother's mortages.

    Open college funds for their children.

    Open a Bank CD and retirement account for me.

    I figure that would be about 2.5 million.

    The rest will go to educational scholarships for minorities, trust worthy organizations that offer food and shelter to the poor internationally, and rehabilitation centers for drug and alchohol abusers.

    Save all of it to ensure all of my immediate family could be financially secure for the foreseeable future. I would not move, quit my job, or buy an island (or anything stupid like that).

    i like the way you think.

    i'd do this
    After I paid off all my debts and the debts of my friends and family, I would start my own programs to help build homes for the disadvantaged/homes for battered women and children, and donate food to the churches that distribute it to the poor. I would never let the government have one cent of this money to run any of these types of programs for me - they cannot be trusted. I would do it all myself with the help of trusted friends and family.

    I know people will call me a "socialist" but I think that a perfect example of a country running properly for its citizens is Sweden. The average income for a family in America is $30,000 USD. In Sweden it is 98,000 USD. When the wealth is distributed more evenly, everyone has a chance to have a home, a car, food, money for an education and free health care.

    It's embarrassing to me that in the United States, the majority of the wealth belongs to 1/10 of one percent of the population (YES 1/10 OF ONE PERCENT). Come on people, let's take it back - you know they stole it from us! Let's try to make America GREAT again and redistribute some of that wealth.

    ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT, if I didn't do that, I would buy one of the small islands off Hawaii and live happily the rest of my life listening to the waves! LOL

    buy islands hawaii live happily rest life listening waves lol

    Oh, in this site they will call you more than a "socialist" for thinking about fixing poverty.... it's "unamerican" to some people.

    FIRST put it in the bank then start spending it on many different things starting with clothes!
