Definetly my family.

Depends on what my estate is when I die. Right now, if I were to die in the next few years, it wouldn't really benefit either. But if I were to die after say 50 years and I had a small fortune built up, it would go to my family. If I had a large fortune, however, I would put send some of it off to charity and such, but still a good amount of it would go to my family.

I have always thought about donating my body to science. That would benefit "humanity."

It would all go to my family.

My family...though i dont have my own yet!
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 8/4/05 - 2:37:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
My family, without a doubt.

It would really depend on my family. Like if i didn't like anyone in my family enough to leave them my estate, or if they were all out for my money.
(i've seen too many movies. :-o)

Don't know about the rest of you, but my family are members of humanity.

It is said that when Bill Gates dies, his family will get less than 0.2% of his estate (I think). The rest will go to charities - but that still leaves his kids $10 mill a piece!

I'd like to leave some money to charity, but first priority is to make sure family are provided for.

My family. If I was very rich maybe both.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/7/06 - 8:48:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, my family is rather...dead. My actual mom is somewhere in Russia in either a mental hospital or prison, and my actual dad is dead. So I live with my aunt and uncle. D:
I'd probably leave it to humanity. Or some guy on the streets. When I'm old, give all my money to some hobo, and then suicide. Yup.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/7/06 - 8:53:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd give it to charity rather than my family.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/7/06 - 8:59:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
humanity. I don't care for my family.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 9:45:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
My family. I don't care for humanity.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 9:47:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
i would have thought my family!

At the moment I plan to give it all to the animals at the zoo. no joke, myself & my husband discussed this. If we both die the zoo gets the lot. Only problem is that we haven't made out a will. d'oh!
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 10:11:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
My estate? Mwhahahahahaha.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 10:13:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
well by estate I guess they meant the proceeds after selling my dvd collection.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/19/06 - 8:12:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
family why should i help people who never gave a f*** about me.

Probably I'd give more of it to help humanity. There are a lot of people I don't know, but I'd still like to help them all. How could I just give my estate to my family when there are people who are homeless and kids that are not being educated? I don't have to know everyone to understand what the major issues are in the world today. I'd like to leave this world a better place than what I found it, so I'd try to put my money in causes that will best benefit humanity. I even do that now.

I wouldn't leave my family with nothing, however. I'd give them a little bit of my estate contingent upon service. If my family can't understand my decision, let them be mad. I'd rather have three people mad at me than to have a whole world suffering. No amount of money can solve all the world's problems, but I would at least make a dent before I'm gone.

My first priority would be my family, but ideally I'll have enough to spread it around a bit.
