WEST CHESTER, OH — An Ohio lottery winner's generosity has inspired Procter & Gamble Company to donate 5,000 rolls of toilet paper to a non-profit in her name, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

donated tpRegina Jackson, a winner of $1 million jackpot from the Ohio Lottery New Year's Raffle, originally wanted to donate a truckload of toilet paper to Reach Out Lakota, a non-profit that was there for her in a time of need, the article stated.

According to the article, she instead decided to donate cash because she wasn't sure how to obtain large amounts of the bathroom tissue.

"When we heard about Regina, we were just inspired to give back," said Laura Dressman, communications manager for Charmin, which is owned by Procter & Gamble.

"We are thrilled to donate 5,000 rolls of toilet paper in her name. We are dedicated to the local community, and we hope the donation helps Reach Out Lakota further assist other families," Dressman added.

The $4,200 worth of toilet paper is expected to arrive at the Reach Out Lakota office today, the article noted.
