Teen gives lottery winnings to his parents

posted by Ashley King - 

Who says teens are selfish? A 19-year-old from Michigan won $500,000 in the lottery … and he’s giving almost all of it to his parents.

The teen, who wishes to remain anonymous, is keeping just $5,000 of the winnings for himself.

"My parents have done so much for my sister and me," he said in a statement. "Helping them takes a bit of weight off of their shoulders and mine."

The teen said he was shocked when he realized he’d won on the $10 Golden Wild Time ticket he bought at a gas station.

"I scratched off in the store and at first I thought they were playing a trick on me until I saw how excited they were about the ticket," he said. "It's just incredible. I can’t get the smile off of my face." (Huffington Post)
