We often read stories about lottery winners who went broke, but not all lottery winners go broke. There are a number of people who won the lottery that are not only doing well, but used their win to help others.
We hope that the stories we share will inspire you. When you buy a lottery ticket, there is a good chance that you might win. And when you win, you hold in your hands the opportunity to give back to your community in meaningful ways. That is exactly what these winners did.
Frances and Patrick Connolly
In 2019, Frances and Patrick Connolly won a whopping £114.9 million lottery prize. As excited as they were, they sat down and planned on how to give most of it away. They gave a large sum to family and friends they knew who needed the extra boost. Then they set up charities to help those in need in their community.
Les Robbins is another lottery winner who won $111 million. Before he won the lottery, he was a school teacher. He used his winnings to set up a camp where children could go for the summer without paying an arm and a leg.
Maybe you want to help people in your community or you have some charities that you would like to support. Winning the lottery will give you the opportunity to give back meaningfully.
