  • First I would buy my family a house. I would put some away for my children, for college, their car, etc. I would give some to my family or maybe buy them some of the things they need. As far as charities, I would donate some of it to the salvation army, cancer research, and mothers who have been abused and live in shelters. I would want to start my own organization to help moms in that situation also.

  • for me...we would first divide it up for all of our family...probably atleast a few million each ( and there are alot of family members lol ) ...we would buy a big chunk of land where we could build our dream house....we would buy 2 new cars...I would build like a playground in my backyard for my kids.... I would also buy a few more houses to rent out really cheap to people who need places to live..and also for another source of income for when the money is gone lol ( around here you can get a really nice house for under 100,000 ) ...I would give to chairities, probably most of them would be or child illnesses, but also Marfans research, seeing how my husband and daughter ( and probably my son) has it...I would also have a classroom set up in my house and pay for a teacher to teach my kids, because they would have to be homeschooled, I would be worried someone would kidnap them for money or something.

  • Pay off my house and all bills including cars. Build a new house (we live in double wide) college funds and trust fund for three kids, pay off all bills, go to doctor/dentist appointments, some to the bank to earn interest. After taking care of all of our needs we of course would pay off things for our families. We actually talked about it, and it may sound mean, but the stipulation for us giving them money would be they had to go to the doctor and dentist, too. I want my family to be healthy, and its expensive to take care of those things. So they'd be all caught up on their health, and bills then they could spend money on whatever. Then I'd give money to the local animal shelter so they could expand, and to the youth sports here in my town.

  • ok, no seriously, 100 mil? that amounts to around 50 mil after taxes if I take it all at one time. I'm 42 and I plan to live to be 100 so that is roughly $850K to live on yearly depending of course on inflation and my brokers fees. Not alot to live on in the future. So seriously, I wouldn't give much if any away, certainly not any more than 90K a year, and I wouldn't go on any spending sprees. Most of it would go to trusts for kids,grandkids and by then it wouldn't amount to much say 50 years from now.
    Unless invested wisely, 100 million is not alot of money to a young person right now.
