Krishna Baari an Indian man is putting $14.5 Million lottery win for education of 100 underprivileged children.
Smile at life and life will smile back at you. Here’s the story of a lucky Indian man Krishna Barri from Tampa in Florida. He has proved that a hero is not necessarily someone who wears a cape and has superpowers. But, being a hero is about helping others and endeavoring to make a difference in other people lives.
According to Fox 31, Krishna Baari became a millionaire after he won $14.5 million from the Florida Lottery in a monthly raffle. He plans to use his newfound fortunes to help less fortunate children.
This seems like a stroke of luck as Barri never tried his luck at a lottery, he told the news publication.
He is now planning to open a trust in India and provide education to over 100 underprivileged children.
I started looking at the tickets, the first ticket, second ticket, third ticket. Oh my god, that’s it! It was an amazing feeling. I called my wife. I said, ‘We got the lottery!’ and she said, “Wow, are you kidding me?” I said, ‘No. That’s true’.Barri to Fox Denver 31
According to Fox 31, Baari with the help of his brother-in-law, came to the US in 1998 to study at the University of South California. Barri plans to start a trust in India, in his brother-in-law’s name who unfortunately passed away recently. He is planning to return to India by the end of the year.
Talking about his other plans Krishna Barri says: “I want to buy a new house and car for my family. I am planning to put aside a sum of money for my children’s education.” Congratulations to you Krishna Barri!
