In September 2009, Shaw McBride of Brunswick, Georgia, won $159 million on the Georgia State Lottery and immediately set about giving it all away. Eschewing the material life, the committed Christian decided to donate his entire winnings to good causes, saying at the time, “with money I can only buy things I don’t need.”
There is not much info in now days about Shaw but the video posted on youtube almost 10 years ago has this caption:
This Shaw McBride guy who wins 159 million dollars in the Georgia Lottery says he’s going to give it all way! Apparently he used to be a troubled kid but got saved before resorting to suicide. Now he’s a local Saint! I guess money loses its luster when you let Christ into your life. Thanks for sending the video Lena.
