Lottery with a good cause

Garry chats with Illinois Lottery Superintendent Michael Jones and MS advocate Meghan Melone. As part of its mission to financially support important causes, the Illinois Lottery has introduced a new instant game from which all proceeds are dedicated to research the causes, prevention, and cure of multiple sclerosis (MS), an often debilitating disease.

    To justify the gambling side of lottery are where the profits go. The philosophy of "the means does not justify the needs" is conquered. Anyway we are now in the modern world where old values are easily bend. But the bad side is that this money does not always go to where it is intended. That's the reality of the world today.
