The Taitung County resident, who hit the Super Lotto jackpot on September 17, took home NT$488 million after taxes and has donated 14 percent to charity, said Taiwan Lottery Corp. General Manager Tsai Kuo-chi (蔡國基).
From that amount, NT$10 million was given to the Nantou-based Pu-li Christian Long-Term Care Home of Rehoboth Welfare Foundation (利伯河基金會基督仁愛之家) because a family member had received assistance from the foundation and the winner wished to give back, according to Tsai.
The winner donated another NT$60 million to the CTBC Charity Foundation, which will use the money to help underprivileged families and children nationwide, Tsai said. [FULL STORY]
