Winning a record prize of £ 11 million, Mark Gardiner thought that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his present problems vanished, he got new ones he was not trained for or capable of handling. Mark hit the jackpot with friend and business partner Paul Maddison. Together the two won a record £ 22 million; Mark’s share was £ 11 million. Shunning the limelight, Paul retreated into the background while Mark decided to have some fun.
Before he could realize it, Mark went through half of his winnings. Though he bought expensive cars and houses, gave to friends and relatives, married and then divorced, his problems never seemed to end. His family disowned him just as if he had committed a crime. Finally he regained his bearings; now he is wiser and remarried to his first wife, a childhood sweetheart, whom he had divorced when he was penniless.
Gladly, however, not all stories are as heart breaking as the one mentioned above. There have been so many people who have made good on their fortune and remained grounded. Ianthe Fullagar, a student, won an unbelievable £ 7,055,142. After screaming in disbelief she settled down and called her boyfriend and family and shared the news with them. Ianthe intends to share her new found wealth with those near and dear to her and to continue to pursue her law degree. The only new thing she planned to buy was new transportation.
One anonymous winner donated all his winnings of $3 million to his church without batting an eye. The church has decided to expand to accommodate its growing congregation and will also donate some of the money to charities.
The point is as a lotto winner you are in an enviable position to do a lot of good to yourself and to those around you. Your community also stands to benefit, but only if you maintain a cool head and spend the money wisely.
