Mar 15 - $1.5 billion megamillions winner donates chunk of her fortune to charity

The South Carolina woman who won the historic $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot has donated a chunk of the prize to charity, according to a statement from her lawyer.

“I do realize that such good fortune carries a tremendous social responsibility, and it gives me a unique opportunity to a*sist, support and contribute to charities and causes that are close to my heart,” the woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, said. Among the charities was a Red Cross relief fund for victims of the Alabama tornadoes.

After months of mystery following the Oct. 23 drawing, it was announced earlier in March that the winner had finally come forward to claim their spoils, the largest payout to a single person in U.S. history. The winner opted to take the lump sum of $878 million.

In the statement released by lawyer Jason Kurland Thursday, the winner, who is female, said she was driving on Highway 417 when she noticed signs for the jackpot and decided to stop at the KC Mart in Simpsonville to buy a ticket.

"She decided to take a chance and purchase a ticket, never once thinking she had the slightest chance to win," Kurland said in the statement. "After checking her ticket the morning after the drawing, she was in complete shock and disbelief.

"She stared motionless at the ticket for what felt like hours, then came the jumping and screams of joy."

She waited to claim the prize while researching lawyers who could help her, according to the statement.

Inside Edition previously spoke to Kurland, who advises big-bucks winners, about what to do if you hit it large.

“First thing you do is stay quiet," Kurland told Inside Edition. "Don't tell your friends, don't tell your family. You have a couple of weeks before you come forward to the world. You need that time to be in the right mindset.

"You don't need people knocking on your door asking for handouts before you even have the money," he added.

Kurland also said you should make sure you sign your winning ticket right away.

“If that's not signed and God forbid you lose it, and someone else signs it and brings it in, it's their ticket," he said.

The woman added in the statement that she hopes to "live a life of relative normalcy, free of fear."

Cant say that I would donate any $$ to an organization but for sure Id create opportunity for others while that money works for itself.

Not that I'm cheap but Im almost certain that the bulk of whatever contribution i dish out would end up in someones personal stash.

A cash charitable deduction is worth 37 cents on a dollar at most. People aren’t saving money by donating.

I'd give my mom about 10 mil to live off of, give my brother five mil, and split a million between my close relatives - which would be about a 100 thou each.

Everybody else would have to figure it out on their own.

I ain't gon' have sh*t.

I'll shut down on somebody with the quickness. I'm not one of those people who don't feel right if I'm not good with my family.

I'd only do that because I care, but if they want to press the issue, I'd ghost their a*s with the quickness.

Starting a charity is a lot like starting a business. If I have over 800 million, I'd be damn if I worked.

I'd build my dream house, stock up on weapons, and travel world.

1. Putting loot in an airtight trust. 2. Buying bonds, treasury securities, CDs, opening Money Market Accounts etc anything insured and fairly liquid. 3. Donating, sharing, and living on half the interest earned, reinvesting the remainder.
