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 assist, support and contribute to charities and causes that are close to my heart,” said the woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous.

Among the charities was a Red Cross relief fund for tornado victims.
