Good on these guys, so long as they were living well enough and happy before the win. And heck, it certainly won't hurt the charities. For these guys, playing the lottery was probably just a past-time.

Nova Scotians are some of the nicest people. Good for this couple and their family. Contrast this with all those winners who lose it all, or bicker and fight and get divorced and then lose it all.

The national 6/49 lottery is a lump-sum, tax-free payment by the way. Not like those namby-pamby American lotteries where they tax it as income and take twenty years to give it to you. lol.

Here's something more from Postmedia News:

Violet, who was recently diagnosed with cancer, just finished her final chemotherapy treatment last week...."We haven't spent one cent on ourselves because we've been too busy getting everything looked after and with my health, I have to wait to get my health back to get the energy to do anything. We're not travellers anyway. We live in the country and we're proud of it. Money can't buy you health or happiness."

Wow, this couple is in a different league... waaaay beyond a level of charity than I can comprehend. Good for them, but they're too good for me. ; )
