article imageCalgary man will donate entire $40M lottery win to charity

By Owen Weldon     Dec 18, 2013 in World
Tom Crist, from Calgary Alberta, won $40-million in a lottery, but he says he will donate his entire winnings to charity.
According to CTV, Crist found out that he won the Lotto Max jackpot about seven months ago, but he claimed his prize just this past Monday. Nobody knew he won the money because he didn't tell anyone, not even his kids.
According to ABC, Crist plans on giving the largest lottery prize that has ever been won in Calgary to cancer charities.
According to CNN, Crist said that he doesn't really need the money because throughout his 44 years with a company he was fortunate enough to do very well for himself. He went on to say he has done enough so he can look after himself, as well as his kids.
Crist and his kids will choose what cancer charities to donate to. Crist also said that the only reason why he came out publicly is because the rules required him to do so.
Crist, who lost his wife to cancer a couple of years ago, retired from his job in September. He served as the president and CEO of an electrical products and services wholesale company. The company was sold back in 2012, and the deal was reportedly worth $1.14 billion.
