Canadian Couple Wins $11 Million, Gives It Away
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
A Canadian couple found it was just too stressful to win the lottery. The senior citizens won more than $11 million. But Allen and Violet Large feared that somebody might take advantage of them. So instead of living large, they gave away the cash. The Nova Scotia�Chronicle�Herald�says it went to family members, churches, hospitals and more. In a somewhat redundant headline, one blog calls them "Nicest Canadian Couple in World."
