|There Is Love In Sharing by Newstrumpet4: 8:29pm On Jul 27, 2020|
It was Brian Tracy who once said “Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.”
The above quote came into manifestation when a Wisconsin man decided to split the $22 million dollar he won from jackpot with his best friend, Joseph Feeney.
The decision was a fulfillment to the promise they made to each other three decades ago that if anyone should win the lottery, the winnings will be shared 50 -50. The promise was done verbally without written agreement to back it up.
Years after they made this promise, Thomas Cook of Elk Mound won the Powerball jackpot after purchasing a lottery ticket from a gas station in Menomonie. He contacted his friend Feeney.
Funny enough, Feeney thought Cook was joking because the pair would buy lottery tickets every week with no luck.
