Bet you would do this too

A woman in New Hampshire has done what many of us would do under the same circumstances. Recently she won the Powerball jackpot. The state lottery commission gave her lawyers a check for $264 million, the total after taxes. They said she will immediately give $150,000 to Girls, Inc. and $33,000 each to three chapters of End 68 Hours of Hunger in the state.

One of her lawyers explained, "She knows there are many charities that do good work and need money, but we want to start with these because she believes children are our future. She doesn't want any credit." The woman is seeking to remain anonymous, and has not quit her job. "This woman comes from a family of givers," said her attorney, "and this is part of how she was raised." Girls, Inc. CEO Cathy Cullity says, "I've been here 22 years and never had a day like this. I wake up in the morning now and say I don't have to worry anymore."
