Blessed are the Poor...

I just read about a church in Corpus Christi, Texas that is going to give away over a million dollars in prizes during their Easter service.

"Cornelius asked church members to donate during services two weeks ago. The response since has been overwhelming. The plan was promoted as a $1 million giveaway, but the actual value is going to be much higher. The 15,000 gift bags alone are worth $4.5 million if all the goods and services are cashed in."

So, what do you think about this? Is this something that is beneficial to the Kingdom or is there a better way to wield generosity?  I would be curious to hear what you think.
