Imagine you win a million dollars today! What will you do with it? Will you keep it all? Give some of it away? Give it all away? Stop working? Stop studying? Go on a holiday? Buy a castle? Start a business? Put it in the bank? Or under your mattress?

If I won such a fabullous amount of money ,I would help improve the educational standard of many empoverished Cameroonian children especially the girl children whose parents with very low income can,t afford to educate them.

I will open a reading house particularly for the children between the ages of 3-13.I will provide motivating aspects that wet their appetite to develop a reading culture which is completely absent among our kids.

I would of course encourage exchange visits between children of my country Cameroon and other countries because I would be able to pay their tickets and this enkindle their love for the Queen's language

Generally I WOULD PROMOTE THE LOVE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IN MY COUNTRY BY DOING MANY INTERESTING ACTIVITIES

Winning 1milion dollars? Oh, yeah , that's wondwerful. If I win such a great amount of money I could make my wish com true. I always want to come to England to study. I love everything in England: streets, buildings, libaries especially, especially the Universities. But studyng there won't cost much so I'll give my parents 100000$. And the last I will do bussiness, I think I can make my 1 milion dollars become 2 milion dollars and more. But, u know? In my country, people think that I u win such a great amount of money thet's mean u put an end to ur life, I still love my life so I don't want 1 milion dollars.

If I won one million dollar I would not give it to anyone or share it with anybody. Only hypocrites would promise that I would do this or I would do that, but if they ever got the money they would love to grab it only for themselves. Isn't it a candid answer to this silly question? :lol:

Hi friends,

If I won 1,000,000USD, I would first buy a big villa next to HoanKiem lake (in central of Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam) which i love its view, its enviroment so much. Then, i buy a brand-new Mercede and travel all over the world by.

I would also give a nice house to my mother as a gift and employe a girl to help her doing housework

Thirdy, i would give 100,000 USD to my relatives and another 100,000 USD to help poor people in my country. I would meet them and hanle them directly. I hate all relief organizations because of inflation.

Oh, how can I have such a fabulous amount of money!

1 million us$ is too much for me, how do i use this pretty penny? At the first, I'll set up a factory with $500,000 and hire more people who are lost their job, do something for the poor. The second, 300,000 for me to study abroad. The rest for my parents. Ha Ha Ha, I always dreaming it---us$1,000,000.

If I won $1,000,000...., (I could not imagine about that !) I would think more and more carefully about how to use efficiently. Money is important to improve our life, but it is not our life. Sometimes it drives us into trouble. Right ?.

The only thing I could do is to hide this amount of money. And gradually use up, little by little. With this money, I would use for my studying, improving my family life and help the poor. That's all.

to won 1 million us$?hehe,i think perhaps many person(including me) have daydreaming of this !what a wonerful feeling!if u have such amount of money,u 'll not be worried for ur life,u won't need to get up early in the morning to rush to ur office before eight,and after 8 hours' tiring work in the office,u go back home wearing out,taking ur supper,doing some house work ,go to bed before 12,and mururing 'tomorrow is another day' but usually the next day is almost the same,day after day,month after month,year after year....life is going by.....
but! this boring life seems to be ended bucause u have got 1000000us$!!!! u can stop working and to fufill ur dream which is only dream befor because of lackingenough money,and they can easily become true now because u have been an millionair!u bye the car u go to have a holiday....then what will happen next?can u use ur new car all day long?can u stay in the other place without backing home?after all 1million is just 1 million ,it can also been used up,i don't think it can change my life so much,life is just the same,i still will stay in the same circumstance and find a job to make a living,but i think most importantly ,i won't let others knowing this!! :D ,let me continue leading a peaceful life as usual,i will leave some money for my parents and my relatives,for myself i need a house of my own,u know in my city,most of the people is strggling all his life for a house,it's really a burden for us living on the simple salary,and the rest to support those children who can't afford to go to school ,i think the most horrible thing is having no education,it's like a blind in the morden world ,that's all ,u know money is not the whole world,we r just passangers of the world,we dong't need too much surprise in our life ,a peaceful and normal life without any hard time can also been called a happy life! do u agree with me?

I, personally, think $1,000,000 dollars is not much if you wanted to do a lot of things (I'm speaking of where I live, not yours. Some places are a lot cheaper than the US). A nice house over here is already $300,000-$500,000 dollars or more. However, if I could win 1,000,000 dollars, I would buy a big house, like 3-story house, fully furnished. Then I'd hire some people to help me to raise orphans. If I still had some money left that was enough for the farm, then I would buy a small farm and teach those kids how to raise animals so they could earn something for a living.

Some people are born generous so please don't make your assumption like that. If they won't share it with the world, they will share it with family. How could one not share something with their family? Moreover, if you have a job and an education, winning money is not a big of a deal. It just adds more luck to your life. You won't die if you share something to others.

$1...... next figure seems to be too obvious

Post by Adhir Garg » Mon Jun 21, 2004 12:53 pm

Hi guys,

Definitely who won't wish such amount of money.. Since I am in India so first of all 40% would be going in Tax (Thanks to the government, would like to spend money on themselves :? ). Then I would have amount of 600,000$. My relatives (which I had not known since my birth) would pour in and give me their "rubbish" opinions about spending the money.. This is another thing, that I won't even lend my ears to them.

Coming to the point, I would like to give 500,000$ for the benefit of people (especially schools/colleges in India) which are necessary.. I would like to give 50% of the left money to my parents, 30% to my brothers, 10% to my wife/girlfriend (definitely I would have some gals around me) and rest 10% would be kept with me.. for purchasing my gold and other lavish things (whatever comes, I would buy) :lol:

Well these are my plans !! How are they ??

Enjoy !!

I never think that i will have 1,000,000 $. However if someday i get such amount of that money, firstly i will share for my relatives. Then i will use some money for donation or raising fund. And the left money will be used for my business. So i can find many times as much as that money. :lol:
