Winning a record prize of £ 11 million, Mark Gardiner knew that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his current problems vanished, he got into new ones that he was neither trained for or capable of handling. With his friend and business partner Paul Maddison, Mark hit the jackpot. Together the two of them won a record £ 22 million and Mark got his share of £ 11 million. Paul shunned the limelight and retreated in the background while Mark decided to have some fun.
Before he could grasp it, Mark went through half of his winnings. As Mark bought expensive cars and houses, gave to friends and relatives, married and then divorced, his problems never seemed to end. His family disowned him almost as if he had committed a crime. Finally, Mark regained his bearings, grew wiser, and remarried his first wife, the childhood sweetheart he had divorced when he was penniless.
But not all stories are as heart breaking as the one mentioned above. There have been too many people to count who have made good on their fortune and remained grounded. Ianthe Fullagar, a student, won an astonishing £ 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 thing she planned to buy was a new car.
A generous anonymous winner, without batting an eye, donated all his $3 million winnings to his church. The church has decided to expand to accommodate their growing congregation; they 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 stands to benefit too, if you maintain a cool head and spend the money wisely.
