So apparently, the Euro Millions jackpot this Friday is 130 million Euros. That's a lot of fucking money, unless you're Bill Gates or someone equally removed from reality. I got thinking (never a particluarly wise move) about what I would do if I won all that money. Just think what you could buy ?! You could buy small countries for that.
So what would you do with that amount of money?
I know what I'd do, and it is probably not what you think I would.
Firstly, I would take a few weeks out to consider my options but I would want to do positive things.
Secondly, I would not donate any money to charity. If I wanted to help the AIDS foundation, I would meet with Elton John and say "Well, I'll put one million in, if you match it - but I want to see the outcome". Then onto Bono "You want to fix poverty in Africa, here's another million - you match it but I want to meet the people it has benefitted" and so on.
Thirdly, I would get all the big corporations to add their resources - you want to keep customers, help mankind as they are your customers.
As I said, thinking is probably not a wise move for me.
But, what would you do if you suddenly received 130 million?
