A million dollars?

If you won a million dollars and were required to give half of it to any charity of your choice... which charity would you choose? why? what would you do with the rest of the money?

I would donate to the humane society. I may not be able to set foot in one (mostly because I want to take them all home) but I would want to help all the little animals as much as possible. With the rest of it I think I would buy a small cabin in colorado and as for the rest... i have no clue.

  • Can I divvy it up? Human Rights Campaign, Planned Parenthood, UNICEF... I'd probably research and find some other worthy causes that I believe in.
    I'd put a nice down payment on a house here and one in Sint Maarten (DH and I had a fantastic vacation there this summer). Upgrade the older car (we have one new, one old), and stick the rest in savings.

  • I would donate it to our boys school.. They need the help, and I think it would benefit all of the kids.. The other half would go in our house fund, we want to build a home in a couple years, and I think that's a good place for it.

  • I would set up a foundation and only give a small percentage away each year with the principle going into investments and the interest to go back into the community. Probably something that would help community based programs assist new immigrants and refugees settle into their new communities.
