I would invest part of it in the bank, and use some of it to help animals. I would make donations to the Humane Society and Siamese Rescue.

I'd invest it and roll that over to charity.
10 million really isn't that much if you break it down to thousands.

If it landed in my bank account...I would ring up the bank company and ask them who put the money in there, or if it was some kind of mistake.

If it landed on my doorstep...I would bring it inside, hide it and then try and think who would give me $10M.

Provided the money was really all mine to keep, I would buy an island and retire there; part of the year, anyway!i

1.} Ask my bank to see if it is real.

2.} Give 10% to any non-profits.

3.} Deposit some of it to save for college.

4.} Use some of it to make a low-budget movie.

5.} Deposit whatever is left in a Swiss bank account.

Would prob give a lot of it to charity, but leave just enough for a house, and a whole room like a big master size bedroom, that i can make into my own little sensory room, complete with sensory walls, gadgets, lights fabrics, colors, the works hehehe :)

Interesting, nobody mentioned giving part of it to their kids...

Myself, I'd probably buy a good house over the sea in the south of France, live well, and use the rest to sponsor people who deserved it. I'd devote my time to writing.

I'd first make sure it was not stolen ( Some woman found a bunch of money in her account once and spent it only to get in trouble with the law because she knew it was not in there before).
Then I would pay off my mortgage.
I would also get another Oldsmobile ( to keep mine company).
I would like to get an RV and go see the Grand Canyon and maybe a ghost town ( it would have to be an RV that I could bring my pets in).
I would like to also invest a good chunk of it for my later years.
Also maybe donate to certain causes, especially those that help avians(birds), because I think they get overlooked.
I would also like to go to Montana and see a fossil bed.
Maybe it would be nice to get a camera to take pictures of birds in the wild, since i like to watch birds.
A canoe. I would like to ride in it down the river and feel free.
Most of the things I want to do would require much less than $10,000,000. So it would take me a long time to spend it. I would help my family out, too, then. But alot of it would be invested.
