Charity Smarity (Edited 04/22/13 01:47PM by Kenne)
Ok the Mega Millions continues to grow....My question is simple...If you won the grand prize  (over $250 million) would you donate to charity?  And by charity I don't mean your family, you sure as heck better help your family out!!!  Who do you help out?

Personally I would probably open some kind of animal sanctuary....the amount of stray and unwanted pets is alarming and i tend to believe that animals like me more than people...sooo

Beyond family, the band would be getting a huge donation.

I think the Music Department Building would be named after me.

I doubt donating would be on my mind for a long while. When (If) I got around to it, people shelters would more than likely be my first choice. The only other would probably be the cancer society since I donate to it now while knowing that they wont ever cure cancer.

I would imagine you get bombarded with people/organizations who wanted to help you spend all that money. I am a really, really random kinda person and I probably would be a random person with or without money. You listed a lot of good causes and I could see me giving to those here and there. But I could see me giving in situations where I see someone at a grocery store having to put back items at the register because them are trying to feed their family and have no clue how they will do it. Or see someone who is at the gas pump counting change hoping they can get back and for from work on what little gas they can buy. Or pull up to a place where they are trying to wash cars or whatever to raise money so some kids can go somewhere. Find a food bank and hand them some money. My guess is I would basically bounce around doing stuff like all that.

I give money to a hospital in Haiti every month.  It's legit.  http://www.crudem.org/hopital-sacre-coeur/services-provided-2/
I would like to build more housing for single moms/domestic abuse.
Provide daycare so they can go to school or work.
Charity begins at home.   My kid would be first in line.

I give to 5 very diverse Charities a year, and donate my time to a Local Veterans group. I would definitely donate some.

CHILD ABUSE PROGRAMS..................yes
#13 | 763 days ago

Wow!  There are sooo many causes that I would think about contributing to. 

Cancer Society, Autism, Juvenile Diabetes, Children's Hospital, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Abused Animals. 

I, like the Croation Sensation above, would not only donate but also take part in rebuilding parks and little league fields.

Of course, I  would take care of myself and family first.
Beans (the man not the other option)  
#14 | 763 days ago

After actually having a house burn down I would donate to the American Red Cross
#15 | 763 days ago

I think I would just continue to donate to the charities I already donate to (Semper Fi Fund, Wounded Warriors, Friends and Helpers, Children's Hospital, and others I get swayed into during the year......most of them small ones) ........just that those donation would be "larger."

Seriuosly, womens shelters, child abuse programs and I'm sure Mrs,mojo wold want to start an animal shelter of some type.
#19 | 763 days ago

I would spread it around to a whole bunch of organizations and charities. I'd try to help as many different ones as possible. 10K here, 5K there. A few million that way could go a long way.

I am a member of my local Rotary Club, and would donate a LOT to the Rotary Foundation.  The Rotary Foundation has been trying to eradicate polio since 1985.  Polio is now officially not present in India.  There are only 3 countries in the WORLD with active polio-Afghanastan, Nigeria and Pakistan.  Rotarians have immunized literally tens of millions of people against polio.  Other causes that the Rotary Foundation has supported over the past 65 years:

Clean water projects
Mosquito netting to prevent the spread of malaria
Mobile eye hospitals in South America to perform cataract surgery on the poor there
Sheltter Boxes for relief.  A shelter box is a totally self-contained tent, food, cooking supplies that can keep a good number of people alive for approximately 4-6 months (used with the Tsunami in 2004, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the Japanese Tsunami last year).

LOTS of good uses.  I also "may" retire...just go into teaching surgery and the foot business to the youngun's.

if, as part of a comprehensive program to deal with child abuse it included the death penalty for the abusers, i would donate 1/2 the winnings to that.
#22 | 762 days ago

Besides  giving  some  to  family,  I'd  have  to  say  the  Humane  Society   American  Heart  Association,  Disabled  American  Veterans,  and  Cancer  Society  of  America.   I'd  keep  enough  to  live  comfortably, and  maybe  be  able  to  donate  to  more  places.

I'd probably make charity work & donations my job.  I personally think we should help our country first & foremost, not exclusively. Once we get in a better position, then do more outside the USA.
My top charities are Children's Hospital in Philly. Cancer research, American Heart Association, ASPCA, Veteran's Hospital, Red Cross, Salvation Army, Schools & goup homes te the disabled. Philabundance. I'm sure I forgot others.
When you're lucky enough to be blessed with wealth from whatever, wherever, & whoever you need to spread the wealth. I just don't understand having millions & watching the country crumble for a decade now.  WHO NEEDS $100 MILLION let alone $250 Million. And I do realize what goes to the government automatically.

I would give to animal rescues and for children.  Making sure it went to these two organizations.
I am new here, so I hope this is right..

I would probably set up my own foundation that would help all those who have experienced all kinds of injustices in  their lives in my area or community. Most especially those who can't really get to finance their drive to seek Justice.

I would donate to the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Animal Charities and St. Jude Childrens Research Center mainly. Also any pet or children charity. 

I'd love to say they will find a cure for Cancer, but I really doubt it.  Heart Association because heart disease is killing off my family..Daddy, 2 Uncles, 2 Aunts, 2 cousins and the rest of us have had heart attacks at early ages..mine was when I was 46, or have coronary artery disease.

Animal and Children charities - says it all. I love animals and children! :)

Real Talk here, not trying to get sympathy or anything like that, but I would give to the homeless shelters in Florida because they are severely underfunded, understaffed, and don't have the resources to really get the people off the street and back on their feet. I speak from experience--been riding the homeless roller coaster in Fort Lauderdale for the past 4 1/2 years now, and as a USMC veteran, it disgusts me that there are so many of us veterans out on the streets. What a wonderful thank you for serving our country. That's why I am part of the Occupy Movement, to help raise the voice of the nation and get the greedy basturds to start taking care of us before we start a revolution with the training they gave us.

I strongly agree with ya! I honestly had no idea it's that bad for our Veterans...it is a crock of crap after having you all serve this Country!  Yall deserve to be taken care of and this shouldn't even be happening.  I'm so sorry and thank you for everything you did and continue to do :)

It's why I am part of the Occupy Movement; I look at it as re-serving my country, but now my uniform is tattered clothing, hopes, and dreams of the middle and working class instead of a camouflage uniform. It's also why I push people to vote with their hearts and consciences by voting democrat; I know democrats are just as bad as the republicans, but democrats aren't trying to steal the money that we paid into called Social Security, so we have something in our future when we can't work. democrats don't tell women that rape is legitimate and then tell them they can't get pregnant from it (and if, by some strange miracle of God that they do, they can't get an abortion).

People say that republicans, of which Abraham Lincoln was one, are the ones that freed the slaves, and that is true: however, that republican party is now called THE DEMOCRATION NATIONAL COMMITTEE, and the federalist party that was bought and paid for by the rich southerners, plantation owners, and rich northerners who opposed the abolition of slavery is now THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE.

makes you wonder.

I can't believe one of your choices isn't Veteran organizations or the Veteran Hospitals at least !! So many Veterans suffer long after they have fought to keep our country free and the Veterans hospitals sure could use the money. They are overwhelmed with patients.

First to the disabled (vets or other disabled who have a need), then the homeless - we have a tremendous amount of starving and homeless people in this county who go unnoticed or helped, they should be a priority, next definitely animal welfare.  So many abandoned and cruelly treated animals, how can a society of wealth be so cruel and finally anyone who didn't ask but needed.  And that is my take on the situation!
