  • I would open a non profit where people could come to for various emergencies or needs. Not only could that million help a lot of people, but establishing a non-profit and a reputation with that money would help sustain that sort of program, as I could then accept donations, etc.

  • Id spend it on my 21 yr old dd, my aunt, and probably on some people in the community here. For my dd Id get her a house, around here you can buy one for around $100k. Id get her a new car, and maybe put $20k in the bank for her to have as savings. My aunt I would give her some money, she is retired with no savings and is up in age. I would want her to have some "mad money" before she passes away. In our community we have many poor people, so I would probably spend the rest helping anyone who needed help with electric bills, oil, gas money etc.

  • my mother first....then my dad because i want him to be happy....

    My mom first because she is 75, lives by herself & works 30 hours a week (even though she is retired, she refuses to stop working) I worry about her living in Boston all by herself....

    I really don't know who else i would give it too. Most of the people i know don't really NEED the money. I would rather give it to people who really need it...tough question when you really think about it. At least it is to me...everyone i know is happy & has money...

  • Buy my mom a house. I would also buy food banks BETTER food. Everytime I see or help out at one they give people expired food. I would also spend money on better resources for low to no income families.

  • I would pay for my nieces college. Her parents never save a dime and so when she got in she had to give it up. I was SO upset.

    After that Im not sure... but I KNOW that would be first.

  • I would spend some on my parents and FIL because they are all at an age were they should be able to retire and can't because of the economy. I might use some to help homeless or troubled kids because it is always something I would like to do. Lastly, I would give some over to neurological research. My DD had a grand mal seizure this summer and almost died. Before her seizure she was a developmentally normal child. They can not tell us why she got sick or why she relapsed again at Thanksgiving. So I would give money for research so other parents don't have to go through what we went through.

  • I would invest it into a foundation to aid specific people anonymously in my community after difficult situations occur to them.

  • I would buy my oldest son a car and some new clothes, pay off his student loans, and pay for his last year of college.I would not by him a house because I do not think he is ready to "settle" into one area of the US yet. I would buy my mom a small house. I would use the rest for local charities, and buy tons of school supplies for the schools around her to distribute to families in need and to use in the classrooms.
