It is the dream of millions of Europeans who play any of our available lotteries on PlayHugeLottos.com each week to hit the jackpot. This life-changing dream came true for French lottery player who wishes to remain anonymous.
A single lottery enthusiast with no children and in his 50’s according to a French tabloid, has plans to give donate the majority of his recent €72m EuroMillions jackpot away. The Frenchman, will be giving an incredible €50 million to charity.
The unmarried man from the Haute-Garonne area of south-western France, who has opted to remain anonymous, said he will share €50 million (£41 million) of his €72 million giveaway between a dozen NGOs working on behalf of the disadvantaged.
He however has one stipulation how the donations will be used.
A spokesman from Francaise des Jeux (FDJ), the organisation that runs the trans-national lottery in France, said about the EuroMillions jackpot winner: “He has a strong sense of social solidarity and he believes in generosity.”
It is believed to be among the one of largest donations ever by a French lottery winner.
Other big-hearted gestures:
Colin and Chris Weir
Remember the British couple who won the 161 million EuroMillions jackpot? This couple are known for using their EuroMillions jackpot win to basically fund any good deed they care to. From buying a fancy new prosthetic limb for a young teen who had lost his leg to cancer to paying for the refurbishment of a historic paddle steamer.
Allen and Violet Large
In 2010 Allen and Violet Large won a $11.2 million Lotto prize. At the time of the win Violet was having treatment for cancer, and the couple decided to give away most of their win to friends, family, hospitals, churches, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and they even gave some to their local fire department.
When it comes to giving back, everybody wins. Success in life is not about how much money you earn but about what you do for others.
We've probably all pondered about what we would do with a jackpot win, but probably very few of us have ever imagined that we'd do what this winner in France did.
