If You Won 20mil What Would You Do with It?

So, as the title says... if you won 20million what would you do with it?

I would pay off my brother's house and my parent's house. Give them each a mill.
Pay off all of my own debts and buy this farm I used to work at. Live in the cottage on the property that's amazingly hidden in the back and backs onto a river. Demolish the house on the property and put a 10 car garage there instead with a hoist for my husband. then turn the farm into an adoption farm for horses. Go to the slaughter auctions and bring back what I could.
I'd give each of my husbands side a mill.
I'd give 500,000 to my step daughter, two nieces and one nephew. But I'd put it in a saving account to gain interest seen as the oldest is 6. I'd want them to go through school and get some form of education after highschool or start their own business before I gave it to them. I don't want them becoming lazy bums and doing nothing with there life cuz it was all handed to them. Doesn't mean I wouldn't help them out along the way but I'd want them to live up to their full potential. I wouldn't even tell them the money is there till they were like 30.
I'd donate 1mill each to a couple health charities like the heart and stroke foundation and cancer foundations or sick kids hospitals or something. Then another mill to an animal rescue society. And continue donating yearly.

As for toys... I'd get a CTS 4 for me, G8 for my husband, get the LS all fixed up all purdy, restore my trans am, make rocket a 9 second base model G5, a truck for the farm and a horse trailer.

I think that's about it. Now only if I could win the lottery lol

What would you guys do? $20 mill budget.

If it wasn't for the fact that I'd have my own farm to take care of, I wouldn't quit my job either. I love my job. I've been here for 3.5yrs. Wish it paid more but passion/sanity is more important to me then money.

pay off my debts, then those of my parents and in-laws. Buy some land and build a retirement home for Ford Aspires, complete with an on-call mechanic for pulling parts, LOL. I'd also buy an old hearse and fix it up.

I'd keep my job though, just to have something to do.

If I had 20 million dollars the first thing I would do is pay off all my bills and buy myself a house, nothing really big. 4 bed, 3 bath and 2 car garage. Then I would help out my immediate family with bills and paying off there homes. I would most certainly have to continue working or start my own business because I would go crazy sitting around the house plus you have to keep money coming it or you will be broke before you know it. Then I would have to find the car I have always wanted and that is a 1998 Toyota Supra, bone stock so I can have it modified the way I want it. That would be my weekend car. Then just live my life one day at a time.

Remember if you save some of this cash even if it's only a mill most people can comfortably live off just the interest alone a year. Good to hear most people would keep there jobs though. That's why I'd want a rescue farm. I work at a horse farm now and love it. If I could just walk out my door and do my job though that would be even more badass lol.
