Michigan Teen Wins Lottery, Gives The Money To His Parents

When you strive to raise your kids right, you don’t expect any reward as a parent, but being great parents paid off for a Lansing couple.

A 19 year old Lansing area teen bought a $10 scratch off ticket last week while getting gas, and was stunned to find out it was a $500,000 winner.

The teen, who has chosen to remain anonymous, says he didn’t believe it when he checked his ticket. In a Michigan Lottery press release he says he initially thought people were playing a trick on him, “until I saw how excited they were about the ticket.”

But what he did next may bring tears to your eyes. The man set $5000 to invest for himself, and then gave the rest of the money — $495,000 to his mom and dad.

“My parents have done so much for my sister and me,” he goes on to say in the Michigan Lottery press release. “Helping them takes a big weight off of their shoulders and mine.”

And how does that make him feel? “It’s just incredible, I can’t get the smile off of my face.”
