Winning a record prize of £ 11 million, Mark Gardiner believed that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his current problems vanished, he got into new ones that he was not capable of or trained to handling. With his business partner, friend Paul Maddison, Mark won the jackpot. Together they won a record £ 22 million; Mark’s share was £ 11 million. Paul shunned the limelight and faded into the background while Mark decided to have some fun.
Before he could believe it, Mark went through half of his winnings. He gave to friends and relatives, bought expensive cars and houses, married and then divorced, but his problems never seemed to end. His family rejected him as though he had committed a crime. Finally he regained his bearings and is now wiser and remarried to his first wife; she was his childhood sweetheart, whom he had divorced when he was penniless.
Happily, not every story is as heart breaking as the one mentioned above. There have been a great many people who have made good on their fortune and remained grounded. Ianthe Fullagar, a student, won a life-changing £ 7,055,142. After screaming in disbelief she settled down and called her family, and her boyfriend, 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 degree in law. The only new thing she planned to buy was new transportation.
An anonymous winner donated all winnings of $3 million to his church without batting an eye. The church has taken a decision to expand to accommodate the growing congregation and will donate some of the money to charities.
The point is, as a lotto winner you now are in an enviable position to do a lot of good, both for yourself and for those around you. Your community stands to benefit as well, but only if you maintain a cool head and spend the money wisely.
