What is better than winning more than 20 million dollars? For an elderly mother in New Jersey, it is sharing her winnings with her brothers and sisters – all sixteen of them.
The Endreson family of Ocean County in New Jersey have endured hardships lately, including homes lost to super storm Sandy and the slow economy. But now that one of them has won a huge lottery jackpot, seventeen siblings form part of twenty members of the Endreson family who will share the huge windfall. And the win is large enough to change each of their lives for the better.
The family decided to receive the prize in a single payment which still amounted to $10 million after taxes. Now that is how to share one’s blessings!
