The lawyer for a South Carolina woman who came forward with the winning ticket for the largest Mega Millions lottery jackpot in U.S. history said she will donate some of the money to tornado relief efforts in Alabama.
Jason Kurland, the anonymous woman’s attorney, told CNN that the woman made the decision based on the timing of her lottery win, which came as devastating storms killed at least 23 people across the state of Alabama. Her donation will be made primarily to the Alabama Red Cross, which is handling privately-run hurricane relief in the state.
The article goes on to state the following:
“It just felt like we were having this great event when there were people suffering nearby,” her attorney told CNN. Kurland added that the woman agreed that it would not be announced how much would be donated to other charities besides the Red Cross, but said the individual charities would be named to raise awareness and further donations.
