Did you know that by saving a small portion of your income tax refund, you could win the lottery?

Specifically, a $25,000 jackpot.

The nonprofit Doorways to Dreams fund has created a new lottery to encourage people to save -- rather than spend.

For every $50 of your tax refund you put in savings you'll get a chance to win $100 during one of 100 weekly drawings.

You'll also have a chance to win that $25,000 grand prize.
