A Woman Who Was About to Be Homeless Bought a $2 Lottery Ticket, and Won $25,000 a Year for Life

We don’t want to encourage people to gamble their money away.  Especially if you don’t have much of it.  But this is pretty cool . . .

A 50-year-old woman in Michigan named Shawna Donnelly has been struggling the past year.  (She lives in Clarkston, about 40 miles northwest of Detroit.)

She’s been taking care of her elderly mother full-time.  And things were so bad financially, she thought she might end up homeless.

But then last Sunday, she bought a $2 lottery ticket . . . and ended up winning $25,000 a year for LIFE.

She claimed her prize on Monday, and took the lump sum of $390,000.

She says she’ll use some of the money to put a down payment on a house . . . buy a car . . . and the rest is going in the bank.
