First I would hire a fulltime nurse so I could bring my mom home from the nursing home. Then I would take care of all my family. I would donate to charities and Take the entire family on a much needed vacation.

Besides paying off the many medical bills that we have and helping my immediate family members and friends, I would give money to feed the millions of children in our country that go to bed hungry every night and I would also give money to help out the many families that were left homeless either from losing there jobs or from the tornadoes across the midwest.I think that much money would be way too much just for me and my family! We would have to share it with those in need!

Vijitha

I would share the 500 millions dollar with the local homeless shelter because they need the support and money as anyone else. I would also take care of bills and my kids future college funds.

Irene

I would set up an annuity to pay to the town I live in,every year, more than the amount of property taxes the town receives with the stipulation that all of this town's property owners would not have to pay any property or school taxes. What fun to watch the value of the homes in the town go up and this way everyone in my town would win.

I'd help out friends and co-workers in need.It's more money than one person needs.

I would first donate to my church, second I would pay off all of my bills and family bills. I would buy a few moderate homes. I would start scholarship fund for Lupus patients and their families. Last but I would travel this great country of ours.

I would share it with the city of new york. Maybe that would helpnwith the over crowded schools. I would build a recreation/senior center in all 5 boroughs in urban communities to help strengthen the self esteem of children and also let the elderly know that they haven't been forgotten. :-) I am so serious

Joe

First, I'd share it with my family, as I would hope most would. After that, I would take care of my girlfriends family and then donate some to the ASPCA and other animal organizations. They can do so much with so little.

Susan

First off, i would help my family, then my friends and donate to some worthy causes.

MK

I would share it with all my siblings. I will pay off all their bills and set them each up with a mortgage free home. I will donate some to Brooklyn College School of Business since I think that is the best school with the best professors ever. Then I will sit back and wait to see what "family" comes out of the woodwork...LOL..and no I will not quit my job...if anything I will invest in it

Ann Breusch

I would share my winnings with my parents, my only sister and I would make donations to the American Heart Association for my daughter who has heart disease, Autism Speaks for my youngest son diagnosed with PDD-NOS, Mental Health Research for my oldest son who deals with Anxiety Disorder and one last donation for A cure for Cancer for which I have lost my grandparents!
