A Homeless Man Won The Lottery! And He's Using His Jackpot To Help Addicts & Abuse Victims!

| Filed under: InspirationCharity

homeless lottery winner helping addicts abused women

Homeless Hungarian László Andraschek only had a few coins to spend when he decided to buy a lottery ticket.

In fact, the entire thing was a complete lark. He says:

"I had only picked six numbers and the female shop assistant reminded me that I needed to pick a seventh. I told her to make it 24 – it doesn’t matter anyway."

That turned out to be the best decision he ever made, because that seventh number won him 630 MILLION forint, Hungary's biggest jackpot of all time!

In American dollars, it's only about $2.8 million, but hey, beggars can't be choosers, right? LOLz!

But László isn't wasting his second chance. He's already putting a sizable portion of his winnings toward creating a foundation for addicts and victims of spousal abuse!

And he isn't doing it for the publicity either! No one would even have known about the win if they hadn't looked into a huge donation to a homeless hostel!

Seems to us like the right guy won! Way to go, László!

Good thing, too, as there's a lot of work to be done there! It's a whole country full of Hungary people!

    It's really nice and thoughtfull of him to do such thing.

    BUT PEREZ, THE HUNGRY HUNGARIAN JOKE IS EVEN OLDER THAN YOU ARE!
    I had you pegged for a little wittier than that.

    What a rude way to end a fantastic and uplifting story. You make Hungary out to be some third world country. Not everyone is starving on the street. Having lived there I can tell you that it is not. It's flippant comments like yours that perpetuate a lie about that country that people who have never heard of it or have never visited it may believe that ruins it for them and the rest of us.

    Alison thank you for your kind words, shame on all those people who are making fun of my country's name. Everyone should come and visit this beautiful place instead of thinking we are still in midle age….and also, the continuation of this story is that this man was robbed right away after he won the money….
    Anyway thank you Perez for even mentioning this story in your blog, looks like you pay attention to many things. And if one day you decide to travel to Budapest, let me know I will be more than happy to show you the city. Nora
