powerball_iowansA Gulf War veteran and his wife who works at Wal-Mart were living paycheck-to-paycheck, but this week they stepped forward to claim a $200 million Powerball jackpot.

They plan to share their good fortune with their families, their church, and their community, Fort Dodge, Iowa…


"Most of their giving will stay in Fort Dodge in the form of gifts to the Fort Dodge Community Foundation for community projects. She says they will also give a gift to the North Central Iowa Humane Society for the group’s new animal shelter."

“We played the lottery about twice a month but never expected to win,” Tim Guderian said. “We had bought the Powerball ticket on our way to visit our parents — we had stopped to buy a pop and decided to buy a ticket as well.” They aren’t anticipating any big lifestyle changes. “We believe that we should share some of our good fortune — we believe it’s the right thing to do,” Kellie said.
