Answer for question 4174.

If you won the lottery, what three things would you buy first? Would you give any to charity? Would you take the money all at once or get it in installments?
Well, lotteries are large and small, but if i won a "life-changing amount" i would want to wait a while to decide what to do with it. Just how do i want my life to change? I have a brother-in-law who is dying and a son who is unemployed and disabled with no resources for retirement. A few hundred dollars would make a lot of difference in their lives, a few thousand would really help. My wife is also disable and i dread thinking about me dying on her. Substantial savings have eased my mind a lot, but a nice windfall of cash might relax it completely. Of course some money would go to my kids and grandkids just because i like them. Most would be given to the few causes and charities that i admire:
Public radio, the Catholic Worker Movement, some homeless shelters, Doctprs Without Borders. Heifer International., Friends Service Committee...
