When I think about this topic it is kind of hard for the fact that I couldn’t imagine doing anything else with fifty thousand dollars but help pay for my education. College cost so much today and it would be very helpful. Besides going shopping, or using the money for myself, I honestly can say that I would use the fifty thousand dollars helping families in need. This has always affected me knowing that there are some people who don’t have such a very good life.

I would use the money for this cause because to me it is the right thing to do. There are some days when I am in school and I see and or hear about kids my age or about a year younger who are less fortunate, or are close to loosing their home. It really makes me stop and think about how fortunate I really am to have the things I do and a home to come to every night. With fifty thousand dollars I know I couldn’t help everyone, but I know I could make a difference in a few families lives. I would be able to provide clothes, toiletries, food and much more. It is always important to me to help out whenever I can. Just knowing I made a difference could put so much joy in my sprits.

I could also get others to help me so the job wouldn’t be so tough, but instead fun. We could go to an organization find the families, get to know them and do all that we can to put a smile on their faces. One thing that would truly brighten my day is helping the little children. I believe that your childhood should be the happiest time in your life. They would make it worthwhile because to me they are the most grateful, and their smile would leave you wanting to do more. 

Using the fifty thousand dollars to help people in need is so important to me because it gives you sort of a reality check. When I sit back and think about my life, I see that I may not have everything I want but I have everything I need. Helping in that way can really just humble you, because it reminds you that you have it better than most people around you when you are showing ungratefulness. With that being said if I had fifty thousand dollars that is what I would do with it besides pay for education.
