In China, lottery winners are required to collect money within two month after paying 20% of the amount in taxes. If a winner decides to donate, he/she doesn’t pay tax on the donated money. This time winner decided to donate 10 million Yuan to Henan Charity Federation and 600,000 yuan to Yan Mengmeng – a Henan girl suffering from uremia.
