You’ve finally struck it rich and won $144 million — as did an 82 year-old man in Washington, D.C. who just won the Powerball Jackpot (”As the Powerball Jackpot Is Claimed, Mystery Remains: the Winner’s Name,” Washington Post May 5, 2009).
So, tell me. What will you do with the money? It will change your life, either make it much better, or perhaps worse.
Tell me about the selfish things you would do with the money, such as spending it on things you would like.
Tell me about the unselfish things you would do with the money, such as helping others. The man who won this amount of money plans to create three trusts or savings funds: one to educate his children and future generations, one for their health care, and one for philanthropy, or helping others.
Now it’s your turn to use the money. What will you do with it?
