流浪汉中1720万大奖 暴富后救助他人

2014-03-07    来源:网络    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

László Andraschek, of Hungary, was on his way to a workshop for recovering alcoholics back in September, when he decided to spend his last coins on a lottery ticket, the Guardian reports. Expecting the same bad luck and disappointment that had befallen him his whole life, he was shocked to discover he won the equivalent of about $2.8 million.
去年9月份,匈牙利流浪汉安德拉谢克在前往布达佩斯参加戒酒工作坊的途中,用身上仅有的数枚硬币在车站买了一张彩票。原本因人生中充满的霉运和沮丧而不报希望的他,竟发现自己中了279万美元(约合人民币1720万元)的头奖。

“I had only picked six numbers and the female shop assistant reminded me that I needed to pick a seventh,” Andraschek told The Guardian. “I told her to make it 24 – it doesn't matter, anyway.”
安德拉谢克告诉《卫报》说:“我只选了6个数字,店员叫我再选一个,我告诉她我选24——反正也没什么关系。”

The 55-year-old has decided to use his good fortune responsibly -- and for a good cause, the outlet notes. In fact, Andraschek’s big win went unnoticed until he made a big donation to a hostel for the homeless in February. He also plans to open a foundation for addicts and women who have been abused.
55岁的安德拉谢克决定对这笔幸运的奖金负起责任——出于善心,他决定把奖金捐献出去。事实上,安德拉谢克中奖的消息没有公开,直到2月份的时候,他给一个流浪汉中心捐了一笔不小的捐款时,他的秘密才大白于天下。他甚至还打算建立一个基金,用来帮助瘾君子和遭受虐待的女性。

Andraschek’s philanthropic efforts for the homeless couldn’t have come at a better time. In 2013, the Hungarian parliament passed a law that threatens those who sleep on the streets with community work, fines and in some cases imprisonment, according to the BBC.
安德拉谢克的善举真的是雪中送炭。2013年,BBC有报道称,匈牙利议会通过了一项法令,露宿街道的人应被罚社区服务,并处罚金,甚至可能面临牢狱之灾。

This isn’t the first instance of a homeless man using jackpot winnings to help others. After winning $50,000 in April 2013, Dennis Mahurin, of Illinois, decided to opt out of improved living conditions and stay put in his tent. He gave $100 to all the other homeless people in the area.
流浪汉用彩票中奖的奖金来帮助他人的例子已经不是第一次了。2013年4月,伊利诺斯州的丹尼斯·马胡林在中了5万美元的奖之后,决定不把这笔钱花在改善自身生活条件上,而是继续住在帐篷里。他给了住在同一区域的流浪汉每人100美元。
