Man Donates $40 Million Lottery Win to Charity

Win Cash Contest

This morning we heard about a man in Canada that won $40 million in the Canadian Lottery a few months ago.

Tom Crist kept it a secret from even his kids until this week. The rules on the lottery there say that if you win you must get your picture taken. He tried to keep it secret because he didn’t want a lot of media around.

The cool thing? Tom is going to give it all away. He’s set up a trust to where he and his children can hand pick different charities to donate it to. Tom lost his wife last year to cancer so he told  CBC News:

Crist said cancer was a special concern, because of what happened to his wife. “She was fairly young and stuff. She beat it for six years before it finally caught up to her.”

Crist said he plans to put the money into a family trust fund to be doled out to charities he and his kids pick over the years. Charities such as the Canadian Cancer Society and Calgary’s Tom Baker Cancer Centre will be at the top of that list, he says.

Our question this morning? If you were giving $40 million to give away, what charities would you donate it to? You can follow the thread at our Facebook page.
