When lottery winners receive their winnings, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are the only people who will be benefitting from that win. In this story, a few charitable organizations will be profiting from the win due to the fact that the winners will be donating a fair portion of their cash. Read further to find out all the details. 

The winners are a couple from Hamilton in New Zealand, and they recently won $7.5 million with the New Zealand Powerball lottery. They said that even though they have been blessed with such an enormous windfall, they won’t stop going to work anytime soon. 

The winners have preferred to keep their identities private when they collected their money earlier this week, they mentioned that their $7.5 million windfall will now finally give them the opportunity to become “Santa’s helpers” for life.

“Winning this amazing prize means that we can be Santa’s helpers for the rest of our lives, and who wouldn’t want that amazing privilege?” they said when asked about their spending plans with Powerball.  

They said that they definitely want to spend some of the money on themselves first by paying off their mortgage, upgrading their cars, and helping their close friends and family as much as they can. They want to continue going back to work as usual, but they have big plans to donate to charities of their choice. 

They have plans to give their favorite organizations extra support now that they have the means to do so. World Vision, Kids Can, and the Salvation Army are a few of these organizations that benefit from the Hamilton couple’s Powerball win. 

Donation

They bought their winning ticket for the last Powerball draw of 2015. They won the top prize. They said that they checked the winning ticket at two separate stores just to make sure because they couldn’t believe they had won. 

“I went into the supermarket to buy our usual Saturday ticket and checked the Wednesday ticket at the same time,” said one of the winners. “When the machine flashed that the ticket was a first tier winner, I looked around me to see if anyone had noticed, and then quickly dashed out of the store gripping the ticket in my hand,” one of the winners added. 

Once the ticket holder got back to their car, he told his wife what had just happened, and she took the ticket to a self-scanner at a nearby gas station to see if it would yield the same result. 

They were in total shock. They visited a friend soon after who had told them that someone in their town had won $7.5 million on Powerball. They knew it was them. They went back to the store, claimed their prize, and said it was a surreal moment and “pretty unbelievable.” 

Unbelievable things always happen. Just like tonight’s Powerball draw that has grown to €419 MILLION overnight.

Don’t delay! You could be Mega-rich today!
