Last Year's Lottery Winner Leaves $10,000 Tip at Diner to Help Owner



About a week ago Bob Erb, who had won the Canadian lottery last year for $25 million dollars, was traveling through Saskatchewan on his way to bury his fathers ashes when he stopped at the Old West Express diner to rest. He started having a conversation with the owner Cliff Luther when he learned that Luther's 25 year old daughter had just been diagnosed with cancer.

Erb had also lost his child to cancer so the news stuck with him while he continued on his way. A couple days later he returned to the diner for some food when he went and paid for the bill with a check for $10,000 and said "If you need to get out there quickly [to see your daughter], this will help you."

Now isn't that one of the most uplifting stories you've ever heard? Lately all you hear on the news is how people are evil and can't be trusted but this story proves that there are still good people in the world.

Would you do the same if you were to win the lottery?

You don't need a lot
This is a show of some resisting the pull to have all the money they can. Money, some say it rules the world, and at times they may be right. It can rule the world and some peoples lives. yet, we can have it, but fight the pull that money has on us, by just understanding a few key things. we do not need a mansion to be happy we can have a nice house that has just enough room for us. a bedroom for every person in the house unless there couples. After that just the usual, kitchen, dining room, ect. How can someone not be happy with just that. If a person were to have millions of dollars, what are they going to do with it. Buy expensive things, why? If you saw someone down on there luck, use that money with a purpose.
