Suppose I hit the Powerball...

I grew up in Las Vegas and Atlantic City and have gambled since the day I turned 21; and one thing I have learned is that when good fortune falls in your lap, it should be shared with those close to you.
I believe it is good Kharma. That being said:

If after I win the Powerball (hey, it could happen) and I was to offer interest free loans only to DUers, how much would you ask for? Remember this is a guaranteed loan, not a gift, with flexible repayment options. How much do you really need to be comfortable.
Only those members that reply to this thread are eligible to receive a loan.


Oh, and anybody that has me on ignore can suck a lemon.

1. How nice of you to offer.

But I've been fortunate, and I'm OK.

6. I too have had the fortune of good health and good schooling as an electrician.

But I am by no means part of the one percent. One month of unemployment would put me on the street; and I'm sure there are many like me. That's why I thought of this OP.
I couldn't possibly spend a half billion bucks on my family and friends in my lifetime so why not make things easier for folks in my shoes?

9. I like to think that we are all like me, Moondog.

We just don't have the opportunity to show it.
