This isn’t what most 19-year-olds would do in this situation. But hey, maybe your kids appreciate you more than you realize . . .
A 19-year-old kid in Michigan recently bought a $10 lottery ticket at a gas station near Lansing . . . and hit the jackpot for HALF-A-MILLION BUCKS.
And believe it or not, he DOESN’T want to blow it all on limos and jet skis.
Instead, he’s planning to invest about $5,000 of it . . . and says he’s giving the rest of the money to his PARENTS.
He wants to remain anonymous, so his name hasn’t been released. But he says the money will take a huge weight off their shoulders. And they deserve it for everything they’ve done for him growing up.
