Irish Lotto Winning Couple Plans to Donate to an Animal Charity
Based on the reports, since they purchased an Irish Lotto ticket that is valid for 8 draws, they are not planning to check the result until the end of the draw. He already heard the news that a syndicate managed to win the jackpot prize but he still decided to wait for the 8th week before checking the result. When the husband took their ticket to the checker, he was instructed to call the national lottery department. The checker did not necessarily tell him that he won the jackpot. He thought that the checker response was somehow odd. When he returned to the office, he went online to check the result.
However, in spite of that, he still refused to believe that something good has happened. When he went back home, he checked it once again with his wife, and they were so surprised that the Irish Lotto results are the same. That night, they celebrated by adding loads of desserts on their dinner. They added some Irish coffees, banoffi, crème brulee, chocolate brownie and ice cream to their usual family dinner.
They are planning to give a portion of their winnings to their relatives and family, and they also plan to donate a part of it to an animal charity before they figure out what they will do with their Irish Lotto winning prize. They plan to do some philanthropic works, but they also want their identity to be a mystery.
Their little kids love the theme parks. They are planning to introduce an indoor slide into their home, so the kids will have a fun way to go downstairs. They said that this is the first thing that they thought about when they learned about this good fortune. They are also planning to take a trip to Disneyland located in Florida, take a Jamaican cruise, move to a bigger house and settle the mortgage immediately, get a new car and of course purchase a giant popcorn maker and the pinball machine. They also want to experience the giant screen at the Have Norman for a unique viewing experience. The Irish Lotto winner is also planning to take his entire family to Venezuela in order to witness the amazing lightning storms.
