I absolutely purchased a couple lottery tickets this week in anticipation of winning the mega million lottery this evening. You have to be in it to win it, right? Now that I have tickets I can speculate about what I will DO with my winnings. It is wonderful to have this silly permission to fantasize about a giant gob of money.
How I will spend my mega millions:
1. 60% of my winnings will be broken down into charitable giving. Here is how I would begin:
—> Big check to Philabundance (my local food bank)
—> Big check to Feeding America (your local food bank)
—> Big check to an organization that I would create that would give grants to families in need
—> Big check to an organization that I would create that would give grants to single women seeking help with fertility
2. 20% of my winnings will be invested in women led start ups
3. 15% of my winnings will go towards my own personal bliss:
—> buy that amazing house in the neighborhood in that school district that I love
—> buy W’s college education in advance (you can do that, right??)
—> obtain: weekly cleaning service, daily chef service, personal trainer, on staff baby sitter
—> obtain: new wardrobe for my mom, new whatever my mom wants actually
4. 5% of my winnings will go towards taxes — food stamps & state healthcare funded by ME!! YAY!!
