1. Louise White
Nabors won half of a $390 million Mega Millions jackpot. He too decided on a lump sum payment and walked away with about $80 million after taxes.
3. Allen and Violet Large
Violet was battling cancer at the time, so two of the first beneficiaries of the winnings were hospitals where she underwent treatment. They gave freely to their family, the Salvation Army, the Red Cross, and even their local fire department. These two are a great example of the power of giving rather than receiving.
4. Les Robins
Robins won a record-high $111 million Powerball jackpot in 1993. The former junior high school teacher decided to use his money to build a camp for children to unplug from technology and enjoy the Florida wilderness.
5. Colin and Christine Weir
The Weirs have also helped various children in need of medical attention. They seem to truly enjoy giving away their vast fortune to help other people live happily.
