The fifth-grade teacher said;

“I haven’t officially decided, but I have started putting down some different things in place to give back, to build an organization, or just promote the change that I’ve been talking about. I think that’d be something that I’d feel really good about.”

With tears in her eyes, Young added that she had been “crying on the phone with one of the producers,” asking if she could give the money to “somebody else.”

“I know that’s been the million dollar question, no pun intended.Yeah, it’s been a lot.” she said.
