This iReport is part of an assignment:
How would you spend $380 million?
What I would do with $190 million
I would invest $1 million in my company. That's plenty to get us where we need to be.
I would keep $10 for my family. That's plenty to last us 2 lifetimes.
I would donate a large chunk, at least 10 million to Haiti. Although I would like to personally be involved with putting the money to work by making the decisions on what it should be used for. Don't want the money to get into the wrong hands, and not accomplish what it's supposed to accomplish.
I would donate another large chunk to the soldiers. Plenty of funds out there to contribute to.
I would start a number of foundations to invest in people, namely soldiers again. Many of them need jobs and being I'm in the tech sector I feel that is where they can be used best. When you're missing a leg it's difficult to work in any physical capacity. I think building a tech support company around wounded soldiers would be very rewarding for them and for our country.
I would definitely be a secret Santa every year for the rest of my life.
I would enjoy spreading the money around to people that need it. Not to people that don't.
And being the question was about $380 million, I would get twice as much done as I would with $190 million.
