I need some assistance with these assignment. if you were given one million dollars to spend how would you spend it you cannot use it for yourself,familymembers or friends Thank you in advance for the help! How To Spend One Million Dollars! One million dollars appears to be a sizable amount and would have made sense had it been transferred to my account ten years ago. Nonetheless, even today, with the expenses having sky rocketed and the inflation exceed the permissible limits, a million dollars is by no means considered a measly sum (Edelman, 2004). If we ignore the ways and means and concentrate on the utilization of money, we would soon realize that spending a million dollars is not an easy task. The above statement is relevant when the money is for personal use. What if I have no legitimate right on the million dollars? What if I have to spend it nonetheless? What would I do and where would I spend it?
The question is abrupt and took me by surprise. It was a while before my polished grey cells started to work again. I thought, pondered, mused and laughed. I had numerous thoughts and each thought was powered by another, more distinct idea. Clearly imaginative, my thinking was now starting to bog my rationality. It was time I took a final decision and the decision had to be a wise one. The moment I gave it a thought, my mind stopped churning ideas. A simple decision to spend it on others had simplified the entire procedure and allowed me to slip out of my utopia. The next thought was the execution of my plan.
In order to simplify the scenario, the million dollars were to be spent for charitable use. With that in mind, I narrowed my thoughts to select the best charitable option. Even as I pondered, I had a recollection which was nothing but a reflection of my past. It involved a close friend who had spent a majority of his life running in and out of rehabilitation centers. His drug abuse had spilled water on a promising career and his life had been reduced to a human waste.
Taking cue from the above example, I set out to locate a suitable property dealer and bought an acre of wasteland. The hundred thousand dollar bill was substantial to transfer the property to my name. The next step involved hiring an expert builder who transformed the wasteland into a fully functional rehab center. I then enrolled the necessary staff and took the required permission to kick start the rehab center. A month later, the rehab had treated over a hundred patients for free, provided employment to fifteen nurses and five doctors besides a dozen maintenance employees. As I had no right over the money, the rehab was transferred under the care of a local non governmental organization.
Well, if you thought that I spend the entire amount on the purchase of land, the construction of the building, the procurement of machinery and the hiring of staff, you need to think twice for I still had a hundred thousand dollars left in my wallet. Without another thought, I drafted a check for the same and had it dispatched through FedEx to an organization I always wished to assist-the “W.H.O.”.
The million dollars had finally been “well spent”.
