In the 43rd season of the long-running reality television series Survivor, Mike Gabler, 52, from Kingswood, Texas, was chosen as the Sole Survivor.A Survivor winner for the first time has declared his intention to donate his prize of one million dollars to a charitable organization.A number of times, Mike has stated that he intends to donate the money from his award to veterans who are in need.
Now that he has been announced the winner, he can put this strategy into practice.
Mike claims that he is “lucky enough to come from a military family,” despite the fact that his family does not have a lot of money. Mike had a conversation with a close buddy who also happened to be a veteran before he agreed to appear on the program. What would he do if he won Survivor, his buddy asked him?
It sparked some reflection in Mike. He has worked hard to establish a solid financial foundation and has a few of years left until he can retire. The award money will undoubtedly be helpful in paying for the property as well as the further education of his children.
However, given all that is going on in the globe at the moment, Mike is unable to accept the money with good conscience. He cannot turn a blind eye to the veterans who are in need of assistance.
A significant number of the males in his life, including his father, uncles, and many of the male classmates he had in high school, served in the military.
Mike claims that the other veterans kept him going through those trying and lengthy days when he wanted to give up and give in to exhaustion.
These veterans are the ones he looks up to as heroes.In spite of the fact that he was never enlisted in the military, Mike is grateful for the opportunity to help them with this substantial financial gift.
