Every employee at Keller Williams Partners Realty in Plantation, Florida pitched in $20 for 120 tickets for the Powerball lottery…. everyone except Jennifer Maldonado, the administrative assistant who just started her first week of work at the office.

Jennifer's co-workers asked her if she wanted to pitch in, but money was a little tight and she hadn't received her first pay check, so she replied with a simple "no thanks".

The next day when Jennifer arrived at work, everyone was screaming and jumping for joy shouting that they won.

“I knew I was the only one who hadn’t put in the money, so I thought they were pranking me." Jennifer said. 

Instead of leaving her out, Jennifer co-workers shared the winnings with her even though she did not pitch in!  Every person received $83,333 after taxes!!

"It’s about sharing the happiness," Laurie Reader, another employee said.

Keller Williams Partners Realty should definitely win the "Best place to work 2013!!!".

And that's what's good,
Jon
