Lottery Winners Doing Good

Everyone loves to play the lottery because it gives ordinary people the opportunity to make all of their dreams come true. Whether this means travelling the world, going back to university, opening one’s own business, taking care of family or simply kicking one’s feet up for a while doesn’t matter. The point is that those dreams are achievable. Not everyone has selfish dreams though. Here are stories of lottery winners who have used their winnings to do some serious good. Keep reading to find out more!

Bob Erb

Bob Erb

While most lottery winners can afford to leave a decent tip but Bob Erb outdid himself. After winning $25 million in 2012 in the Canadian Lottery he was a happy man. However when Erb stopped for a burger and fries at a restaurant in 2013 only to learn that the owner, Cliff Luther, had a daughter who was suffering from cancer. When Erb asked for the bill he also asked for a pen so he could pay by cheque. Luther was so overwhelmed by the $10,000 tip that Erb had to flip his own burger. Talk about using lottery winnings to do some serious good!


John Kutey

John Kutey's Water Park

Most lottery winners share their wealth by donating to charities already in existence or starting their own charity. When John Kutey became one of several IT specialists to share in a $319 million MegaMillions win in 2011, he decided to build a $250,000 water park. Spray Park opened its doors in Green Island, New York, on July 1. It replaced the out dated park that had been in existence since the 1940s.  Kutey and his wife Linda dedicated the brand new summertime hang out spot to the memory of their parents. If all of Kutey’s fellow winners were to follow his lead an entire city could be revitalised. This just shows you how far a seemingly small amount of money can go if you win the lottery after playing MegaMillions online!


Allen and Violet Large

Allen and Violet Large

Research has proven that the larger the jackpot, the more likely a lottery winner will end up bankrupt. This was not a concern for Allen and Violet Large who won $11.2 million in 2010. They donated a whopping 98% of their winnings to various charities, fire departments, churches, the Red Cross and hospitals where Violet was treated for cancer. After Violet’s passing in 2011, Allen continues to buy lottery tickets in her memory and plans on donating it all if he wins again. Talk about a wonderful couple!

If you would like to do as much good as some of these people why not play the lotto online so you can start changing the world from your own home?
