Lottery winners frequently give away a proportion of their lottery winnings and this week a recent big Powerball winner has pledged to give $500,000 to the Travis Mills Foundation.

Travis Mills FoundationThe non profit Travis Mills Foundation which is based in Hallowell, Maine serves to support disabled veterans, a cause close to the winners heart.

Her father was a Vietnam War veteran and her three brothers all have served in the military.

The winner, 51 year old Lerynne West won a share of an almost $700 million Powerball jackpot, taking home a cool $343.9 million.

She acknowledges the brave and selfless sacrifices our soldiers have made for our country and hopes the money will go some way help improve their lives.

"I know the responsibility that I have to do good with this money," she said, at a news conference. "And my life has changed forever. I plan to make thoughtful and responsible decisions on giving to my friends and my family and setting up so that my grandchildren will all have a college education."

Lerynne who lives in Dexter, Iowa, was one of two winners of the third-largest Powerball jackpot of $687.9 million last month.
