July this year, they won the Lottery Jackpot in Canada. After they found out about that they won, they started giving their money away to family, the fire department, churches, cemeteries, the Red Cross, Salvation Army and several hospitals.
The interesting thing was that Violet was battle cancer and going through chemotherapy at that time.
When asked why they gave most of it away, Violet’s answer was, “What you never had, you never miss.”
After this, Allen answered, “That money we won was nothing. We have each other.”
The couple kept 2%, saving it for a ‘rainy day’.
