It would give you a lot of choices to do some really good things.
I was thinking of a private foundation to quietly help deserving people without taking any public credit. The publicity would only complicate my life.
But, how do you define "deserving"?
So long as you can verify that the need is legitimate, then deciding who is deserving would be up to you.
PS I'm starting to like you too. You have a heart.

Thanks. ;)

I would be interested in someone's character mostly. Everyone is down on their luck occasionally. Some do it to themselves. If you are trying to lead a good life, you might be more deserving than someone who is always feathering your own bed.

I agree. I know a few people who I have helped in the past, only to see them back-slide right back into the same routine that got them in trouble before. However, I'm a "fool me once" kind of person. It's hard to say no, though.
It hurts me, but I realize enabling them is not helping them.
You've inspired me to go buy a ticket for tonight's lottery drawing.:)

Elaine has a heart for those who agree with her, for the others, NOT SO MUCH! Sometimes I DO agree with her at other times NOT. I do not like her by any stretch of the imagination. Agree with her sometimes, like or admire her NEVER!

Not angry, I just know the kind of person you are, and you have my sympathy not my anger.
