A lady won a Picasso painting. She won it in a raffle. She got the raffle ticket for Christmas from her son. When her son told her about her win, she said: "Please don't joke." Her son said: "It was maybe the best decision I've made in my life." His mother could not believe she had won. It is the first time she has won something.

The painting is of a newspaper and glass on a table. It is called Still Life. Picasso painted it in 1921. An auction house valued it at $1.1 million. A billionaire art collector said it was worth up to $3 million. All the money from the raffle will help people in Madagascar and Cameroon. An NGO will build and repair wells and toilets.
