"it's like bringing a gift to everyone of his luck"
I still get a warm glow thinking about Jose Lima who manages a butcher shop in Toronto who won $14.45million in the 6/49 lottery last month. He vowed that if he ever won, he would give back to his community. Hundreds of his loyal customers (and a few new customers!) lined up for hours on Thursday to congratulate him and accept a free 10lb bag of chicken legs. His 50 employees each received $5,000. He plans to keep on working, but to slow down to 4 days a week for 3 or 4 hours a day instead of his usual 7 days a week. An emotional and generous man.
