Am I Really a Winner? Truly?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “You’re a Winner!.” You’ve just won $1 billion dollars in the local lottery. You do not have to pay tax on your winnings. How will you spend the money?

To start with, I would take care of all of my debt so I would not have that staring me in the face ever again.

Second, I would give to my immediate family to use as they please, with the caveat that they spend wisely, because once it is gone…it is gone. No free refills here.

Third, I want to get myself a condo with a view and an SUV (Ford Explorer)for reliable transportation; I have no desire to own a Mercedes or a BMer(aka a BMW).  I would want to travel; go to Paris, London, Rome, Tokyo, Beijing and see the Great Wall of China, visit the Holy Land, take a cruise(location TBD)…and travel across the USA; Disneyland, DisneyWorld, Los Angeles to go to the TCM Classic Film Festival,  San Francisco, Seattle, attend an NFL game and go to the Super Bowl with family and a few close friends (and it better not be in London)…a brief laundry list of sorts…

Fourth , there are a causes that near and dear to my heart that I definitely want to give to: The Humane Society, ASPCA, March of Dimes, St Jude Hospital for Children , Shriners Hospital for Children, Special Olympics, Catholic Charities, Research to eliminate cancer of all types, AIDS, Alzheimer’s Disease, Education(which there is so a need for), Organizations that will stamp out hunger and homelessness…another laundry list.

There are some friends, aunts, uncles, and some cousins(not all) who I would want to help; however, for those individuals those funds would have to be set up where the proceeds would be given on a monthly basis in the form of an allowance; terms and conditions would be explained in person and also in writing; a legal document of sorts. it would have to be done with them not knowing it came from me (set up as a “generous benefactor”)for obvious reasons.

Although listed last, it is the most important: Under no circumstances is my identity to be revealed, I need not explained why.

That is all.
