One Wednesday September 26th 2012 somebody in Iowa won the 202 million dollar Powerball. I already have my winnings mapped out if I was to win the Powerball. I would make sure my family is finically set. Continue living my day to day life. I would invest into something nonprofit.
With that said let me tell you how I would spend my winnings. Making sure my family is finically set would consist of: Paying all of our debt off. Making sure my children’s education is paid for and they have money for the rest of their life. I would make sure my parents bills are completed paid off and that they didn’t have to work another day. That’s the least I could for them having to put up with me as a child.

I might open some type of children’s home.
As you can see there are many great things I would do with my Powerball winnings. I still have high hopes of winning the...
