Everyone wins!

Even though the world is full of greed, I just read something that really warmed my heart. A Missouri couple have used their lottery winnings to improve their hometown. Mark and Cindy Hill have spent chunks of their $293 million fortune on the town of Camden Point. They have bought their town a new firehouse and baseball field, plus refurbishing the town’s wastewater system, and topping up the high school scholarship fund. The Hills’ gifts amounted to 25 years of taxpayer receipts for the town.
And that’s not all. The town’s fire chief Walt Stubbs says, “That’s just the kind of people they are. They were that way before the money came.”
Now, that’s my kind of people!!!
