Saturday's Question~~~Who Will Get The "Doe Ray Me"

This week's question didn't come easily to me, But I think I have come up with an interesting one.....I hope.


Here it is....You have inherited or won a significant amount of money....Yahoo!!! lets say it's one million dollars!
                                     



There's a catch....there's always a catch.


You get to keep 10,000 but in order to keep this money you have to give the rest away.....what would you do with it?


Donate it to your old Alma mater?
                                                     
                                                                     source




Give it to a local zoo to help with food costs?
                                         
                                                                         source



Give it to Research?
                                                     
                                                                            source




Give it to a charity that helps people in another part of the world?
                                                      
                                                                           source




Or right here at home?
                                                 
                                                            source 




Create a scholarship in your name in Honor of someone you loved? 

                                             





Invest in someone else's dream?
                                                   




So what will it be?  Who will get the "doe ray me"?



Have a beautiful weekend...and if you can please take a few moments to think of  all those soldiers who sacrificed everything for our freedom.

  4. love the question. Without a thought...I would use it to help others realize their dreams as long as their dreams in some way gives back to others...like putting a kid through school...or helping someone start an organization to feed kids from poor homes etc.....have a great weekend

  5. This is an easy question for me. I wouldn't even keep the $10.000. I would give it all to Cancer Research.

  7. I'd also prioritize children's charities, especially related to cancer treatment/research.

    Love the VitaMeataVegamin graphic. That episode was the best!

    Blessings to you, Joanne,

  8. I think I would give it to you on the same condition. Pass it on until someone decides to break the chain or till there is nothing left.
    I'm not sure about charities, from what I've been told only 5% lands up with the people you thought you were giving the money to. Good question though, very thought provoking. Actually, to tell the truth, if I did win a whole lot of money, I know exactly who I would give it to, a widow I know. I was talking to the Lord about exactly that just the other day. God bless, Geoff.

  9. I would build wells and kitchens in Africa... And donate to organizations that work with orphans. That's where my heart is.

    Thank you all for your thoughtful comments. You all are such giving people! What would I do? I think I would give to Breast cancer research for sure and also give it to my childhood church to help create more youth programs.

  11. I would donate to charities, and buy my daughters each a house as that should count as giving it away.
