Couple Wins 11 Million Dollars Then Gives It Away Four Months Later
Would you ever consider giving away a million dollars? How about ELEVEN MILLION? After winning the lottery in July of this year, an elderly couple, Violet and Allen Large of Nova Scotia, decided to give it all away!
"What you've never had, you never miss," said Violet, 78. "We have an old house, but we're comfortable and we're happy in it," she continued.
According to the Halifax Chronicle Herald report, after just four months of winning, the couple donated almost all of their winnings to churches, animal charities, hospitals, family and other groups. "It made us feel good...and there's so much good being done with that money," said Violet.
I guess money and greed hasn't corrupted everyone in this world. And although I admit it would be hard to give away ALL of that money, I guess at 78 years old you wouldn't have much to do but put it towards others. "We have each other," said the couple.
