 Father Of 15 Shares His Heart After $60M Powerball Win

If the headline didn’t grab you, then this Powerball lottery winner’s story will. The winner comes from California, and upon winning the massive prize of $60 million, he decided to spend his winnings in a way that will impact many others for the better. Read further to find out what this selfless winner did with his cash winnings. 

Generous Powerball Winner

The winner’s name is Jack Long. Jack comes from Fontana, California, and he won $60 million with the Powerball lotto just last year July. Since his massive life-changing win, he has pledged to use his winnings to help several local charities around his area. 

The winner is aged 77 and is the father of fifteen children. During his life, Jack has been making a great number of charitable donations with whatever he could afford to donate at the time. 

This month, in particular, the generous Powerball winner has been making plenty of donations. His largest one so far was the sum of $100,000 which he gave to the Children's fund in San Bernardino which is a non-profit organization helping thousands of children in the area. When asked his reasons for donating to this organization, in particular, the generous Powerball winner replied with, “They do so much for the community. I had no problem choosing them. I know the money will go to good use.” 

Powerball Winner Generosity

His charitable behaviour didn’t end there, however. He continued his charitable habits on August the 24th when he gave the amount of $50,000 to the Fontana Pop Warner Football Organization. To further amaze you, just the day after that donation, he went further to donate to the Fontana Police Department Explorers programme. They received $20,000 from Jack Long. 

Incredibly, he then gave away $10,000 to the award-winning Fontana Leadership Intervention Program and $5,000 to the FLIP Jr Program, both of which help young civilians in Fontana who are at risk. 

Jack Long is the latest winner in a long list of other winners who have donated a large portion of their winnings to charities. Another past winner, a Canadian, by the name of Tom Crist has also been making steady large charitable donations since he won the Lotto Max jackpot of $40 million. In Perth, a family who won $50 million with the Powerball in Australia in July said that they would be helping charities with their win. 

The kindness and generosity don't stop there, however. The same approach was also taken on by a family in New Zealand who won $9 million with the Powerball lottery in March. Earlier this year, winners Angela Maxwell and her husband, continued in their charitable efforts long after their win of £53 million with the EuroMillions lotto

As it goes in life, though, there are things that many people battle with, and for Jack Long, in particular, he suffers from a condition in which excessive heat puts his life in jeopardy. The way in which he won definitely sounds as though it was just waiting for him. He popped into the Cardenas Market to buy popsicles to keep him cool, and that’s when he won his jackpot prize.

Powerball Winner's Destiny

Like many other past winners, he bought his lottery tickets on a whim for the first time in a long time and managed to win $60 million in the 19th of July Powerball drawing. His enormous win overwhelmed him and he remembers thinking that he “definitely had more money than he’ll ever be able to use” and would be taking it upon himself to help charities in Fontana because the area had treated him and his fifteen children so nicely. As you can see, it certainly has kept his promise to make a difference in the world with selfless actions. 

It is always really refreshing to see lottery winners who immediately think of the opportunity to help others who haven’t been so lucky themselves. There are many people on this earth, and there will never be enough money to go around. It gives you good energy and karma to help those who only you think would be deserving of your charity. Always choose wisely, but in the end, choose to donate something, even if it isn’t much. You never know how someone’s life can change, and in their eyes, you will forever be their blessing.
