Little Kindness Goes a Long Way – Sofia Andrade and Her $200 Win
And you thought all of these are going to be about million jackpot winners. Well, here’s a surprise for you. Once upon a time a modest woman spent her last $2 to buy a scratch-off card. She did the drill and won $200. Now you probably expect her to spend her winnings on few more tickets or scratch cards, or maybe just spoil herself with a decent apparel item. Well, she didn’t. On her way home our heroine Sofia Andrade met this homeless person called Glenn Williams. It was rather cold outside and she invited him for a cup of coffee. She picked him up and took him at her place, made him a cup of coffee and they had a chat. Glenn was overwhelmed by the kindness and how she took him in to warm himself.
She didn’t stop here. She started a campaign on GoFundMe.com. Sofia wanted to raise $5,000 for Glenn, but something else happened. In the end there were nearly $15,000 for Glenn, in just two days!
I guess the $200 win was just the push she needed to do something kind.
A Lottery Winner from Milwaukee
There are things in life we don’t have control over. I don’t know what’s going to happen next month, next week, heck I don’t even know what’s going to happen tonight. Jack Maier won $300,000 in the SuperCash lottery after losing his beloved wife to breast cancer. One might think he’s going to travel the world in his late 70s and maybe comfort his loneliness with his hefty bank account. However, he started renting billboards all over his city. Myrna’s tragic death was about to become the alarm for many women. He rented billboards urging women to get mammograms. It’s a medical exam that determines if a woman is in danger of breast cancer. Jack even went a step further and urges women in his billboards to ask for a 2nd opinion if they’re in doubt. I wish there were more lottery winners like Mr. Maier over here.
He states he’s not going to stop until he runs out of money. Bear in mind, one billboard costs $2,000 for a month.
