Homeless Man Wins Lottery

A homeless man wins the lotto is topping news headlines this week, as the Huffington Post reported this Thursday, April 4, that a homeless man from Bloomington is going to do a very charitable deed with his winnings: give $100 to each homeless person in the local area.

With the headline reading, “Homeless man wins lotto in Bloomington”, the source reports that Dennis Mahurin recently won a $50,000 jackpot. It would be more than enough for him to certainly move out of the tent he’s called home for the past 20 years, but the Illinois winner plans on using that money on something else.

The homeless man wins lotto search term began to trend across major search engines after Mahurin was shocked to scratch off the big winning ticket. Yet he’s decided to promise to use that money to help assist others who were in a similar position.
