A 19 year old man (kid?) in Lansing Michigan dropped $10 on a lottery ticket last week and defied the odds. He won $500,000! Now, what he's doing with that money has Lansing buzzing. I know what you're thinking - he's gonna blow all that money on cars, clothes, jet skis and sneakers. Not this kid.
The man, who wished to remain anonymous, is taking just $5,000 of the winnings and investing it. The rest, he's giving to his parents because he says "they deserve it."
He went on to say in a statement from the lottery bureau; "My parents have done so much for my sister and me. Helping them takes a big weight off of their shoulders and mine."
This probably isn't what most 19 year olds would do in this situation. But hey, chances are good that your kids appreciate you more than you realize.
All the feels.
