    100% of donations go to helping the stray animals of Aruba. Tax deductible in the US.

    wouldn't it be a fine thing if we as a group won POWERBALL......let's say $100 million.
    we would all be pretty comfortable in the cash department and then we could give loads to our favorite charities.
    ............ahhh dreams are nice huh?

    Yes Yes Yes----that is what I plan to do when I win, until then I give what I can. I know--don't count your chickens----but really I have always said that I would.

    I give to my Church which has ministries everywhere in the World and I know the pastors who bring all the money to the right place to do the right thing. All charities are great, and yes Andrea I pray sometimes to GOD to win some money and not for me to help all that are in need starting with my family. GOD BLESS all who can give even a little.

    How about this? This is a couple who live in my area.

    A retired Canadian couple who won $11.3 million in the lottery in July have already given it all away.
    "What you've never had, you never miss," 78-year-old Violet Large explained to a local reporter.
    She was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer when the couple realized they'd won the jackpot in July.
    "That money that we won was nothing," her tearful husband, Allen, told Patricia Brooks Arenburg of the Nova Scotia Chronicle Herald. "We have each other.
    The money was a "headache," they told the paper--mainly, it brought anxiety over the prospect that "crooked people" might take advantage of them. Several people called them out of the blue to ask for money when the news first broke that they'd won the jackpot. So they began an $11 million donation spree to get rid of it and help others.
