KAMLOOPS - A Kamloops man who believes in helping people will be using some of his $500,000 to help wildfire victims in B.C.

Jason Labby won a Lotto Max Extra prize on July 7, according to a media release from BCLC.

"I’m donating some of my winnings to help people affected by the wildfires across B.C.," Labby says in the release. "I believe in helping people."

It's not known how much of Labby's winnings will be shared, but he does plan on spoiling himself as well.

"I’m going to buy a home for myself and relax more," Labby says. "I’m celebrating every day because every day is a good day."

Labby's winning ticket was purchased at the Esso Bear Den in Chase.
