  1. #1

    Question What would you do with 10 million dollars

    CONGRATS ....YOU HAVE WON THE LOTTO.......10million to be precise....so watcha gunna do


    I would donate half to SCI research and divvy up the rest between my loved ones, investing at least 1 million.

    I would fly to some third world country where they engage in radical SCI treatments that are not approved yet in the states and let them go to work on me! Oh, then I would divvy up funds between the relatives, investement in some prime real estate, and then donate funds to specific charities I have dealt with in the past.

    Get a fully working vehicle.

    Pay off parent's debt.

    Buy a house in North Cali.

    Relish life as a perpetual student.

    Rent a condo in D.C. while Congress is in session to advocate for cure research.

    Donate to research.

    Invest.

    Play.

    I'd use it to 'buy my way' into labs as donations for tours, to meet researchers and get the latest information. I'd donate a substantial amount to the Rick Hansen Foundation. I'd also buy the newest state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment for a hospital (or a private clinic) for this area.

    I'd buy a huge yacht and retire forever - at age 33 - becoming a philanthropist. lol

    I'd have to give some to my relatives - not that we see each other often - but I could guarantee they wouldn't speak to me at all if I didn't. David might be a problem in laying claim to half - might have to knock him off - kidding, I think. lol

    I'd be an altruist.

    ah well, my life is better in every other aspect since this happened. it bettered me as a person and my relationships.

    but anyway, i'd put it all in a trust fund. then i'd make sure i had enough for my kids and college so they can be whoever/whatever they wanted to be...as long as they aren't bums.

    i'd donate some equipment to my first rehab which is so old-school with sci, as well as donate some better shower chairs to said place and also shriners. i dunno what else i'd do yet.
