  • Low cost daycare centers for my city. I would use 1/2 the money for start up costs and the income from investing the rest to fund them from then on.

  • Open special education school. But I think that more than that would be needed.

  • Pay off my parents house, pay off my family's medical bills, pay for my grandmother to go to an assisted living retirement home (one she can make friends and socialize, not one that they are in bed all day...Grandpa passed earlier this year, and she's not doing so well either)...give some to friends to help them with whatever they need help with...Any left over would go to charity

  • I would buy buy things for my daughter, fiance and stepson. I would buy a house for my mom. I would put money in a college fund for my 14 year old sister, finish paying college for 21 year old sisters. I would put money in a college fun for my neices and nephews. I would put money in a college fun for my DD and SS. I would donate money/gifts to an organization for toys for children Christmas. I would donate money to homeless shelters and places like that. I would donate money to Children's Hospital. Everything other than the house that I bought for my mom would be to benefit children in one way or another.
