Homeless Hungarian Wins Lottery Jackpot, Donates to Charity

This is absolutely heart-warming. Perhaps the government should be handing out the money to the homeless, rather than fining them with tolls they cannot afford. This man is inspirational.

Indebted, unemployed and homeless, László Andraschek bought a lottery ticket on his way to a Budapest workshop for recovering alcoholics and became a millionaire.

Andraschek claimed his record $2.8 million prize several months ago, but his story was only unearthed after he recently made a significant donation to a hostel for the homeless. He says that after paying off his debts and buying homes for himself and his three children, his plan is to establish a foundation for addicts and women abused by their husbands.

Human rights activists are currently organizing worldwide protests against a Hungarian law threatening people sleeping in the streets with a fine or imprisonment. There is an estimated 30,000 homeless people in Hungary.
