What would you do....

if you were given 1 million dollars BUT the catch is you CANNOT use any of it on yourself, your family or friends--- you have to "pay it all forward" and do something for strangers, a favorite cause/charity or your community. What would you do with the money- what would you choose to spend it on?

  • hummm.... well I think I would divide it into 6 piles... I would have my kids and husband choose a chairty or set up one for something they feel pastionate about. I would LOVE to find out what my kids would choose (15, 14, & almost 10). Im not sure what I would use my portion for... but I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to hand out some of mine randomly. To surprise people with a kind deed.

  • I think I would start off with a plot of land, to garden... others could help as well... but fruit trees, veggie beds, and so forth where it would/could be fruitful for many years to come and help feed others!!!

  • If I can't spend it on myself or friends then I'll choose to let the Homeless groups obtain half and the Humane Society the other half.

  • Good Answers Ladies!!!

    BrandonBearsMom-- I like your donating to Saint Jude, BUT the 'rules' said you can't use any money for yourself/your kids/family/ friends it has to go to strangers, charities or to help your community.
