Where would you leave it? I would establish a scholarship fund at my univeristy or high school (public HS, but to help kids afford college), or donate it to the ASPCA, to ending sex slavery or cancer research.

Most definitely to the ASPCA or Humane Society. My dream job would be to work for one of these amazing organizations and I certainly would want my money to further their efforts.

i would give it to so many charities – american heart association, cancer research, homeless shelters, food banks…

Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty. Good Self-Esteem is CRITICAL for young girls.

Hmm…I would almost for-sure do something to help endangered animals and the environment!

@Treejewel19: Ditto. I have to remind myself I can’t afford to save all the animals whenever their commercials come on.
I would also add World Wildlife Fund to that list.

to a foundation like Cooking Matters that teaches nutrition and cooking to low income households because eating healthy does NOT have to be expensive and it can be TASTY!
Helping to reduce obesity would have a waterfall effect on everything. Peoples happiness, peoples incomes, health care costs etc.

Probably the ASPCA but there are other’s that I’d consider as well.

I would donate it to various homeless shelters and food banks and Charity: Water. My goal in life is to donate a well with Charity: Water.

World Vision, Samaritans Purse and Compassion, ministries that sponser children to allow education, provide clean water, vocational training, agriculture training, live stock and crops in third-world countries. 🙂 I’m a bleeding heart

@Miss Orchard: Oh yes, maybe something with the environment too.

It’s sure to be controversial to some when I say this, but our plan if we don’t have kids to leave things to the NRA’s Civil Rights Defense Fund or some other related program. It’s an issue that’s important to us.

i can imagine my husband doing something crazy like wanting to rent an entire island resort for a year and having all our diving buddies come and go as the like for a free tropical scuba holiday on us. he would only ask that his ashes be scattered in the ocean while they are having fun or his ashes being made into a reef ball
if it was my choice i would donate the money to organ transplant support/education or gay rights – i dont even think i know anyone who is gay but i feel very strongly that gay people do not have the right to marry in my country and i hope this changes before i die one day

I would leave it to an organization that helps families with family members who battle addictions. Either that, or cervical/breast cancer research.
